FRIENDSWOOD, Texas—Friendswood Police have made four more arrests this week of burglars in the area.

Friday, July 27 at 6 p.m., Dontae Mason, 35, of Houston, and Kevin Jerod Kent, 28, of Miami, Florida, were charged with Burglary of a Motor Vehicle and Theft-Possession of Stolen Property.

Officers were dispatched to Kandiland Day Care Center, located at 1504 Winding Way, where a burglary of a motor vehicle was occurring. The vehicle’s owner walked outside and saw two feet sticking out her driver’s side window. She ran inside, called 9-1-1, and described the suspect’s vehicle as a silver car with out-of-state license plates.

An officer caught up to the vehicle, with Florida license plates, just as it got outside the city limits on El Dorado at Signal Hill. When another police unit caught up, the officers conducted a felony stop on the vehicle in the 2200 block of Bay Area Blvd.

Kevin Jerod Kent was identified as the driver. Kent told police that his passenger, who identified himself as Corey Mason, jumped into his car, bleeding, after stealing a purse. Kent also told police that Mason threw a stolen phone out of the car. A wrecker driver found the phone in the middle of El Dorado Blvd. Later, officers found a GPS stolen from a vehicle burglary in Manvel, as well as, other stolen property from a League City burglary.
