LPPD captures car burglar who stole Deer Park officer’s Taser

 


Nicholas Arthur

09/21/1998

 

A car burglary in La Porte on the night of January 6th was a deplorable crime in and of itself.  Making matters worse, however, was the fact that the vehicle burglarized belonged to an off-duty Deer Park police officer and the officers police-issued Taser was one of the items stolen. A special sense of urgency always surrounds thefts involving weapons. 

 

The residence, located within the 400 block of South Nugent, was the scene of the crime where the officer had parked their personal vehicle.  Unfortunately, a defective locking mechanism on the car allowed for easy entry and escape.  That is until LPPD detectives were assigned to the case.  Detectives were able to gather information from a potential witness and soon-after identified 18 year-old Nicholas Arthur of La Porte, as the offender.

 

Arthur was later interviewed and admitted to the crime.  Charges were accepted by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office for the charge of Burglary of Motor Vehicle against Arthur, who has since been booked into the Harris County Jail.  Detectives also recovered the stolen Taser and have returned it to the neighboring officer.
