Smoking Proves Hazardous for Colorado Avenue Burglary Suspects
Jul 28, 2017   06:45 PM

Early this morning, San Angelo Police were dispatched to a residence in the 2800 block of Colorado Avenue for the report of a burglary. 

Investigating Patrol Officers obtained a detailed description of the stolen property and noted a cigarette butt on the ground where forced entry was made.  

During the field investigation, Officers obtained information about potential suspects who lived nearby.  Upon further inspection of the front of the suspects’ residence, an Officer located the same brand of discarded cigarette butts located at the burglarized residence.  In addition to the discarded butts, the Officer observed personal property inside an outdoor trash can that resembled stolen items described to him by the victim.  

Officers then made contact with a woman at the potential suspects’ residence; however, the woman refused to cooperate with their investigation.  Detectives with the Department’s Criminal investigations Division responded to the scene and subsequently applied for a search warrant.  Officers detained the woman, who was identified as Jessica Storts, 30, of San Angelo. 

As Officers waited for the warrant, a male subject exited the residence.  When the man opened his wallet to get his identification, Officers observed two rings that matched the description of stolen rings described by the victim.  Officers detained the man, who was identified as Jacob Martinez, 18, of San Angelo. 

Subsequent to the lengthy field investigation and search of the suspects’ residence, Officers located the stolen property and returned it to the victim.  

Storts and Martinez were charged with Burglary of Habitation.  The investigation is ongoing.

Fleeing Suspect Gets the Point after Morning Chase in north San Angelo
Jul 27, 2017   04:21 PM

At approximately 9:00 a.m. this morning, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the Resort at Riverside Apartments, 3306 N. Bryant Boulevard, for the report of a possible burglary in progress where a male and female were observed entering a second-story apartment through a window.  

Officers arrived and as they approached the apartment, a man who matched the suspect’s description jumped from the window and took off running.  The female was taken into custody without incident after she exited the apartment through the front door. 

Officers pursued the fleeing suspect on foot and additional responding units quickly established a perimeter of the surrounding area.  The suspect fled through neighboring streets and into a nearby field where Officers temporarily lost sight of him.  He was eventually spotted running into the backyard of a residence near the 3500 block of Lake Drive where he was confronted by Officers on the perimeter.  The suspect attempted to backtrack but quickly abandoned his flight and surrendered without further incident.  The suspect was identified as Willie C. Montgomery, 38, of San Angelo. 

Officers requested San Angelo Fire Department Medics to the scene to evaluate Montgomery, who was suffering from a copious amount of cactus needle injuries and apparent exhaustion.  Montgomery was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and arrested following his release from medical care.  

Following the field investigation, Investigators charged Montgomery with Criminal Trespass Habitation, Evading Arrest Detention, and seven outstanding warrants.  Montgomery’s female accomplice, 23-year-old Haley Winn, was charged with Criminal Trespass Habitation, Third Degree Felony Possession of Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 (methamphetamine), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Police Arrest Three Suspects in Connection to Stabbing on North Malone
Jul 27, 2017   03:59 PM

Three San Angelo residents have been arrested in connection to yesterday’s stabbing investigation in the unit block of N. Malone Street. 

Christopher Lange, 24, Selina Parsons, 22, and Danielle Huckabee, 20, were booked into the Tom Green County jail last night charged with Aggravated Assault with Deadly weapon. 

The charges stem from a lengthy investigation that began around 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 after Police were dispatched to Shannon Medical Center for the report of a stabbing victim who later underwent surgery for treatment of multiple stab wounds.  The victim remains hospitalized and is reportedly in critical condition.   

At the conclusion of yesterday’s investigation, Detectives with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division developed probable cause to charge the trio after learning the assault on the victim, who is Parson’s 34-year-old fiancé, was premeditated and that prior to the assault the trio discussed telling the Police that the incident was a burglary gone bad and the victim was stabbed by an unknown suspect who was wearing a mask.  

Lange is alleged to have entered the residence while the victim was asleep and that Parsons and Huckabee directed Lange to the bedroom where the stabbing occurred. 

The Department’s Street Crimes Divisions and Crime Scene Investigations Unit assisted with the investigation.
