On August 8, 2017, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a Burglary of a Building that had just occurred.

A citizen advised that she arrived at her business located in the 21400 block of Karen Switch and observed a truck and trailer leaving the location with property from her shed. The citizen followed and provided dispatch with updated locations.

The truck and trailer turned into a business near the 7800 block of Jackson Road, which is a closed plant which leads to over 2000 acres of property with several trails and different pipelines. Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived on location and found a flatbed trailer loaded with over $10,000.00 worth of property abandoned several hundred yards off into the woods. While on scene, Deputies and Detectives began checking the area for the suspect’s truck. A witness called in and advised he observed a truck matching the description in a field at the dead end of Weeren Road off of FM 1486.

A short time later, Deputies and Detectives located the truck on a pipeline and, as they approached the suspect, he again fled. Deputies and Detectives followed on foot and observed the Ford F- 250 wreck into a tree at a high rate of speed a few hundred yards south of High Meadow Estates Drive.

Amazingly, the suspect was able to run from the accident scene. Canine teams from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Department of Criminal Justice, assisted by Harris County Sheriff’s Office Air Support, were able to deploy their tracking dogs and quickly locate the suspect. Roger Alan Rowlett, Jr. was arrested and charged Burglary of a Building and Evading. Thankfully, all stolen property was returned to the rightful owner.

Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson commends the outstanding teamwork demonstrated to take this dangerous thief into custody. “It is a testament to the spirit of cooperation between our various agencies that allowed for necessary resources to be rapidly deployed.”
