HOUSTON – FBI agents are working with Houston police to try and track down a pair of burglars who broke into a fellow agent’s home.
The suspects stole the FBI agent’s government-issued Glock-22 handgun and Remington 870 short-barreled shotgun. Both weapons were secured in a green gun locker, which was also stolen.
The Glock was recovered over the weekend during a traffic stop and one person was taken into custody. The shotgun is still missing.
The burglars also took several personal items from the home near Hollister and West Little York in northwest Houston.
Two men were captured on surveillance cameras using the agent’s personal credit cards during a shopping spree at Willowbrook Mall, according to the FBI.
The first man is described as a Hispanic male with a heavy-set build. On September 24, he was wearing a white t-shirt with the logo "Play Cloths High Rollers" on the front. Later the same day, he was pictured wearing a black t-shirt and black shorts.
The second man is described as a taller Hispanic male with a thin build. On September 24, he was wearing a red t-shirt shirt with the logo "Ca$h Only" on the front. He also had a large gold chain around his neck and a large white wrist watch.
The suspects were last seen driving away from the Willowbrook Mall in a black four-door sedan.
Theft of government property is a federal felony.
The suspects are also wanted for questioning about several other recent burglaries in northwest Houston.
