New Details Emerge on Gun Theft Ring Suspects

Three gun theft suspects with possible ties to Brazos County remain behind bars in Houston.

Investigators say Guillermo Andersen, Christian Carbajal, and Jesus Rendon were caught in the act of breaking in through the roof of a Pawn Shop in the Houston suburb of Spring on January 14.

Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Assistant Chief Mark Herman tells News 3 they were wearing masks and gloves and were hiding from police on top of the store and pulled their ladder up with them onto the roof hoping law enforcement would think they'd left.

Investigators believe they are part of a larger gun theft ring.

274 guns have been stolen in eight separate store burglaries in recent weeks including 80 guns taken from the Great Texas Gun Company off Highway 21 in Brazos County.

Assistant Chief Mark Herman says these three men arrested all have Houston addresses and stole a U-Haul truck near where they were living during this latest break-in.

There have been no more reported burglaries in the region since their arrests but at least four others are believed to be at large.

It's still unknown if the three arrested are the same men that broke into the gun store here in Brazos County.

The ATF is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for these burglaries.
