On November 13, 2017, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were on patrol when they observed two suspicious vehicles, a red Dodge Charger and a white Chevrolet Suburban, at a closed Exxon Gas Station located at 21100 Eva Street in Montgomery. The vehicles were parked with hoods up at the gas pumps. As Deputies drove by, they observed a male standing across the street on the phone at the Ole Antique Store, which is also a closed business. It appeared the male at the Ole Antique Store, was the “look out” for the males at the Exxon Gas Station.

As Deputies approached the vehicles left the location. A Montgomery Police Department Officer was able to stop the red Charger for a traffic offense at Highway 105 and Lonestar Parkway. The Suburban was located by a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Deputy in the 26866 block of Highway 105 West. Inside the vehicle Deputies found three occupants, but believed one male walked away and was not located.

The two males found in the vehicle were interviewed and found to have inconsistent statements about why they were at the closed gas station. Deputies searched the vehicle and found black rubber gloves with superglue, tools that could be used to access gas pumps, gas pump integrity seals, and a computer. Deputies inspected the gas pumps and found them to be superglued closed and two “skimmer” devices were found in the wiring of the pump. The two males found in the Chevrolet Suburban were arrested and transported to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Jail and charged with unlawful use of a criminal instrument. The Montgomery Police Department will be conducting further investigation.

Sheriff Henderson comments, “Being proactive and working together is what led to these felons being apprehended. Credit Card skimmers are difficult crimes to investigate, but thanks to the team effort taken by our law enforcement agencies we now have two that will answer for their crimes.”
