On Sept. 26, deputies with Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman's office responded to the 20000 block of Chipplegate Drive in reference to a theft. Upon deputies arriving, the complainant reported that two unknown male suspects stole a lawnmower from the bed of his truck as he was mowing a client's lawn. During the course of the investigation, deputies located and recovered the commercial lawnmower from a local pawnshop. Surveillance video captured a suspect, later positively identified as Jarius Horton, as the male who sold the stolen lawnmower to the pawn shop. Further investigation revealed that a 16-year-old juvenile was the second person involved in the theft. He had already been arrested on another unrelated charge and was booked into the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center on the theft charge as well. Horton is currently wanted by law enforcement for theft. His bond is set at $100 in County Court 10. If anyone has any information regarding his whereabouts, they are urged to contact Precinct 4 dispatch.
