A Parker County grand jury indicted Gregory Aiden McCann, 17, of Aledo, and Riley Eric Collier, 18, of Weatherford, on Oct. 17 for multiple counts of burglary of a vehicle.

On Aug. 28, Weatherford Police Department officers were dispatched to the Weatherford Heights neighborhood in reference to a suspicious persons, according to the affidavit. Officers were unable to locate any people, but were then dispatched to the Trace Ridge subdivision in reference to people possibly breaking into vehicles.

“It was reported that two suspects fled on foot, running away once they observed [an officer’s] marked patrol unit. After an investigation, [McCann] was taken into custody for unlawful possession of a firearm and burglary of a vehicle,” according to the affidavit. “Inside the vehicle [McCann] was getting into, several items that were possibly stolen, including two wallets, and a firearm were located in plain view.”

Officers found out the vehicle McCann was getting into belonged to a friend, Chase Rhodes, and it was also learned that Rhodes and Collier were the two subjects that ran away when seeing the officer’s patrol unit, according to the affidavit.

After an investigation, the officer learned that Collier, Rhodes and McCann broke into between 18 and 65 vehicles between midnight and 5 a.m. on Aug. 28 at five different locations across Weatherford, according to the affidavit. The officer also found out that Rhodes and Riley stole two pistols during the night from vehicles. Rhodes and McCann admitted that they, along with Collier, were breaking into vehicles that morning.

McCann was booked into the Parker County Jail for burglary of a vehicle, burglary of vehicles with two or more previous convictions and unlicensed possession of a firearm. He is being held on a combined $29,000 bond.

Collier was booked into the Parker County Jail for for burglary of a vehicle, burglary of vehicles with two or more previous convictions and theft of a firearm. He is being held on a combined $35,000 bond.

Rhodes was booked into the Parker County Jail for burglary of a vehicle, a $5,000 bond, and bonded out on Sept. 14.

“Mr. Collier is indicted for committing two theft of a firearm offenses and four burglary of a vehicle offenses. Mr. McCann is indicted for four burglary of a vehicle offenses. While burglary of a vehicle is typically a Class A misdemeanor, due to the indictments alleging that both defendants have two prior burglary of a vehicle convictions, those offenses are enhanced to state jail felony status, necessitating their placement in our district courts,” Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain said. “Likewise, theft of a firearm is a state jail felony. A person convicted of a state jail felony is subject to being punished with six months to two years in a state jail facility and a fine of up to $10,000. All of these cases involving these defendants were randomly assigned to the 415th District Court, Judge Graham Quisenberry presiding. Arraignment was scheduled for Oct. 30 with the cases first reaching the trial docket on Feb. 24, 2020.”

Swain said because it does not appear that Rhodes has any prior burglary convictions, it is a misdemeanor in his case, and would move to the Parker County Attorney’s Office rather than an indictment. Swain said his case does not appear to be filed with the district attorney’s office at this time.
