North Texas Jewel Thief has been CAUGHT in Houston!
I recently blogged about the Jewel Thief, Steven Breed, who was stealing from open houses while pretending to be an interested customer. The wife of the man in the newspaper article in the most recent blog post about the thief wrote me recently saying the following,
Your experience sounds much like our own. My husband Roger is the agent quoted in the 1/31/2012 Village News and Southwest Village News article quoted at the beginning of your post. Yes, he was fast. And yes, he was bold as brass.
Fortunately, he has now been caught! We have just received he following information from the Houston Association of Realtors:
“Don’t Mess with HAR REALTORS!
We have just received official confirmation that the open house jewelry thief has been arrested in Dallas. He reportedly had four outstanding warrants, including two in Dallas, one in Garland and one in West University Place. It was only with the combined effort and involvement of our members and law enforcement that we were able to identify him, which ultimately contributed to his arrest. This just goes to show you the strength of the REALTOR® community”
I am glad that you and your client were both OK.”
