NORTHWEST HARRIS COUNTY (Covering Katy News) -Investigators from Constable Ted Heap’s Office have arrested a man they call “a serial burglar” who they believe is responsible for numerous Katy and Cypress area car break-ins over the last four months.
“Shannon Deshawn Williams, 20, was arrested at approximately 3 a.m. on Thursday, January 10 on Fry Rd. near FM 529,” said a statement from the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office. “Deputies spotted Williams driving the same vehicle that was seen in multiple car burglaries in Cypress Creek Lakes, Bridgeland, Ventana Lakes and other upscale neighborhoods in the area since October 2018,” the statement also said.
Precinct 5 released a video that shows a person walking from house to house, checking car and pickup truck doors. Some vehicles were burglarized. The video was shot during the predawn hours.
“Inside his (Williams) vehicle, they found stolen belongings, illegal drugs, clothing that matches what is seen in home surveillance videos and a center punch tool used to shatter vehicle windows,” the statement said. “Deputies are now reviewing more than a dozen cases which may be linked to Williams, who has a criminal history of burglary and theft.”
