Men caught during burglary indicted

WEATHERFORD —  

A Parker County grand jury indicted two men Thursday caught in May with a rubber glove and stolen electronics after an alert neighbor called the Parker County Sheriff’s Office about a break-in in the neighborhood. 

Armando Brandon Rodriguez, 19, and Luis Osvaldo Montes Jr., 18, were indicted on two charges of burglary of a habitation regarding two incidents in Parker County in May.

 When deputies arrived on scene in the 3300 block of East Bankhead Highway around 3:30 p.m. May 30, they saw a black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck backed into the driveway, facing the roadway. Deputies found the rear door of the home had been forcefully entered.

According to the sheriff’s office, Montes and Rodriguez were reportedly found inside the residence and surrendered after deputies instructed them to exit the home.

Deputies searched both suspects and said Montes had a rubber glove with him. Deputies reported Montes told them he used the glove so he would not leave fingerprints during the burglary.

Deputies called for an ambulance after Rodriguez told them he was suffering from a panic attack. After being assessed by paramedics, Rodriguez was released at the scene as healthy.

Inside the suspects’ vehicle, deputies said they found a rifle and three firearm cases, three cell phones, CDs, a laptop computer and an Xbox game console with a Kinect system. 

Deputies reported the pair implicated themselves in two other burglaries, one occurring earlier that day on the same street and the other on May 7.

Homeowners in the first Bankhead Highway burglary reported two iPods, three cell phones, a jump drive and miscellaneous business cards had been stolen from their home.

A neighbor reported seeing a black truck leaving a home in the 100 block of Lakeview Terrace on May 7. In that case, deputies observed the back door to have been forcefully entered, with several pry marks around the locking mechanism. The property owner reported two flat screen televisions, an Xbox game system and a Sony Playstation with assorted video games had been stolen.
