GALVESTON, TX - Galveston police are looking for a career criminal who they refer to as a 'person of interest' in the January 26 beating death of 59-year old bakery ower Juan Navarro.

Navarro was discovered near death lying in the parking lot of his business, Panaderia Navarro Bakery at 3801 Broadway by Galveston police officer Ernest Ticas who was on routine partrol that Saturday morning. His car was later found a few blocks away.  Navarro died that night in UTMB Hospital.

Police impounded Navarro's stolen vehicle for crime scene examiners who apparently determined the vehicle had been driven immediately following the baker's death by 40-year old Harold Joseph Norwood, a convicted drug user and thief who has been in and out of Texas prisons at least four times.

Norwood has been arrested and convicted for offenses in Galveston, Texas City, Houston and other places for multiple crimes including assaults, robbery, theft, evading arrest and possession of drugs and Marijuana.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Norwood's arrest charging him with Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, based on the evidence gathered from Navarro's vehicle by CSI officers.

A one quarter million dollar bail bond has been set on Norwood following his arrest.

The Galveston Police Department is seeking any information on the whereabouts Harold Joseph Norwood. Please contact the Galveston Police Department at 409-765-3702 or Crime Stoppers at 409-945-TIPS (8477) with any information. Harold Norwood is a known violent felon. Persons coming in contact with this man should NOT approach or attempt to detain.  If outside Galveston County call the nearest law enforcement agency and report his location.

Well, what do you expect. A bunch of certain types roaming aimlessly around Galveston Island on govt assistance. It's only going to get worse when the "mixed housing" becomes a reality. OH let just put the low income, uneducated, thugs next to the working productive citizens. Yeah, like a lawn mower will go missing the first week, then car broken into, then house broken into, then a murder/rape, with a person of interest living next door. It's a time bomb waiting to happen. They found who the cretin was, but he probably is on his way to Louisiana, to dwelve into shadows of his own tribe. He will probably show up a a routine police stop. Hope the law enforcement officer doesn't run into an ambush just stopping him. You know he's going to come out shooting. I'm looking for a death penalty in this case. No less.

Death Penalty!!!!!

Our prayers are with the family of the victim. I live on the island and this makes my family feel very vulnerable since it seems to be so random. I don't want to feel like I have to look over my shoulder just simply going to the grocery store or whatever errands I'm running in my day. What is happening to society or the human race for that matter. We are supposed to help one another and make the world better, but maybe senseless acts like these make us all bitter and jaded and resentful. I'm trying to keep the hope alive. Everyone be kind and don't take this life for granted.
