San Angelo Police Nab Butler Farms Felony Theft Suspects
On Monday, November 19, 2018, at approximately 10:30 p.m., San Angelo Police were dispatched to the 1500 block of Barbara Avenue for the report of a vehicle burglary in progress.
Officers quickly converged on the area and began canvassing the neighborhood for suspects when they located a suspicious vehicle parked in the 1500 block of Butler Drive that was occupied by two men. Officers also observed discarded personal property on the ground outside the vehicle.
When speaking with the men, later identified as 19-year-old David Gandar and 17-year-old Michael A. Andros, Officers observed property inside their vehicle that had just been reported stolen from the burglary on Barbara Avenue. Gandar and Andros were detained and interviewed by the Criminal Investigations Division and later charged with Felony Theft of Property, Burglary of Vehicle, Criminal Trespass, and Possession of Marijuana.
In addition to recovering the victim’s stolen property, Officers seized numerous items of suspected stolen property that were also located inside their gray Chrysler 300.
Some of the seized property has since been identified by additional victims who live in Butler Farms and discovered their vehicles had been burglarized overnight.
This is an active investigation and additional charges are forthcoming.
