FBI Houston Division Seeks Two Men in Government Theft Case

By  | 

The FBI is releasing photographs of two men wanted for questioning in a series of break-ins in Northwest Houston. During the latest crime spree, burglars broke into the home of an FBI agent stealing government weapons, along with the agent’s personal property. The men pictured in the photographs were captured on surveillance cameras at the Willowbrook Mall using the agent's personal credit cards during a shopping spree on September 24, 2013.

Burglars broke into the agent’s home in the area of Hollister and West Little York in Northwest Houston on September 23, 2013. It is one of several break-ins to occur in the area over the past several months. Among the government property taken were a Remington 870 short-barreled shotgun and a Glock-22 handgun, both secured in a green gun locker, which was also stolen. The FBI is seeking information about these two men or others who may have been involved in the crime. If you have possession of either of these stolen weapons, we ask that you call the Crime Stoppers tip line or the Houston office of the FBI. The theft of government property is a federal felony.

The first man is described as a Hispanic male, with a heavy-set build. On 09-24-2013, he was pictured wearing a white t-shirt with the logo “Play Cloths High Rollers” on the front. Later the same day, he was pictured wearing a black t-shirt and black shorts. The second man is described as a taller Hispanic male, with a thin build. On 09-24-2013, he was wearing a red shirt with the logo "Ca$h Only" on the front of the t-shirt. He also had a large gold chain around his neck, and a large white wrist watch. The men were last seen driving away from the Willowbrook mall in a black four-door sedan.
