Deputies from Constable Ted Heap's Office recently arrested two men who made off with a 2015 Aston Martin from a Southwest Houston exotic car dealership.
The suspects, Davion Terrell Smith and Alexander Scott Davis, rented the car using a fake ID more than a week ago. Rather than return the car when it was due, the two offered to buy it for $66,000. Davis then used the same fake ID to arrange a wire transfer. When the bank notified the dealer that the transfer was fraudulent, the Aston Martin was reported as stolen.
"Our deputies were able to track down the stolen vehicle and arrest both suspects without incident at an apartment complex in the 8000 block of Cook Road," Constable Heap said. "We are happy that we were able to return this stolen vehicle undamaged to its rightful owner."
Davis, 26, and Smith, 27, were arrested on Monday, August 5, on felony auto theft charges.
What is the reason for increased break-in's of cars, houses in our neighborhood.? What security measures can we take and have taken? What does the police have to say about these incidents? I am happy that these two were caught. If they are given a pat on the hand and released, crime will escalate to an unstoppable rate.
