PCSO: From stolen property to abusing 911, deputies make handful of arrests Monday

Parker County sheriff’s deputies arrested several individuals Monday on unrelated charges.

The first incident occurred in the 5000 block of East State Highway 199 in Springtown, where Jose Cruz Andrade-Favela, 30, was reported as carrying a “handgun” and handheld radio inside a convenience store around 11 a.m. The caller reported Andrade left the store in his vehicle and stopped at a residence on Spring Valley Court.

Deputies made contact with Andrade, who reported the weapon and radio were located inside his vehicle. The radio was marked as property of Parker County and was later confirmed to bear the serial numbers of a handheld radio reported stolen from a county employee in 2009. The radio is valued at $1,600. The handgun was found to be a BB gun.

Andrade told deputies he carried the items into the store because he was afraid someone might steal them if he left them inside his vehicle. Andrade reportedly told deputies he was not a police officer but wanted to be one. He then advised deputies he purchased the radio at an area flea market and knew the radio contained the Parker County ownership tag but was too busy to return it.

Andrade was arrested and charged with theft and possession of stolen property. Andrade’s bond was not set as of Tuesday afternoon.

The second incident occurred shortly after noon Monday, where deputies were called to respond to a person with a weapon in the 2000 block of Spring Court in Azle. Deputies reportedly arrived on scene and spoke with the complainant, who reported a known suspect shot twice at her.

The victim said she was visiting an acquaintance when an argument began and a man at the home asked her to leave the residence. As she walked out of the home, she advised she heard a “bang,” then turned and saw the suspect holding a weapon. The victim stated she continued to run from the residence and heard another “bang.”
