Arrests Made in Brock HS Burglary
JANUARY 22, 2016.
Parker County Sheriff’s investigators arrested two men in connection with the Brock High School burglary which was reported Monday, Jan. 18, 2016, in the 800 block of Eagle Spirit Lane, in Brock.
Sheriff’s investigators conducted an initial investigation and interviews at Brock High School immediately following the report. A Crime Stoppers tip generated earlier this week confirmed the identity of one of the suspects.
The suspects were identified as Sheldon Lee Mowery, 20, and Kyle Wilson Alexander, 19.
Brock High School employees reported that sometime between late Sunday evening and early Monday morning, the suspects were caught on video surveillance breaking into the high school agriculture building and forcing entry through a window, damaging it. The surveillance video shows the suspects were wearing military-style, tactical clothing, carrying backpacks and rifles.
The suspects appeared to know the location of the surveillance video recording system, taking it with them during the burglary. Additional recordings of the incident were obtained in the course of the investigation.
Items reported taken during the burglary included a Toshiba laptop computer, an iMac 27” desktop computer/monitor, a Hewlett Packard monitor, four Yeti cooler 20 oz. cups, two Epson overhead projectors and 20 beef jerky sticks. The value of the stolen items totaled approximately $8,000.
The majority of the items reported stolen were recovered on base where the suspects were located. The Hewlett Packard monitor taken during the burglary was discovered earlier this week in a ditch located in the 6000 block of Old Dennis Road.
Both suspects were booked into the Parker County Jail late Thursday night following the investigation which led the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division to a San Antonio military base, where both men were stationed.
Mowery and Alexander have been charged with burglary of a building, a state jail felony. No further details of the case will be released due to the ongoing investigation.
At this time, the Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the video surveillance and/or still photographs of the surveillance footage collected at the scene, as they are being utilized as evidence in the investigation and pending prosecution.
The video footage and recorder taken during the burglary has not been recovered.
Mowery and Alexander’s bonds were set at $15,000 each. As of Friday afternoon, both men remained incarcerated at the Parker County Jail.
