On 05/11/2018 at 11:41 p.m. a homeowner called the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office to report that several people were burglarizing his shop in the 9700 block of Tram. While Deputies were enroute, the homeowner reported that the burglars had gotten into their truck and were backing off of the property. Deputies stopped them as they were leaving and discovered 4 adult males and one male juvenile inside the truck. While checking the vehicle, the homeowners stolen chainsaw and weed eater were located in the bed of the truck. Two loaded handguns were discovered in the console of the truck.
The driver, 30 year old registered sex offender Jefferson Cantrell of Beaumont was charged with Burglary of a Building and Possession of a Firearm by a Felon. The front seat passenger, 38 year old Lamond Hines of Beaumont was found to be wearing body armor. Hines was charged with Burglary of a Building, Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and Unlawful Possession of Body Armor. Backseat passenger, 20 year old Tyler Lyles of Beaumont was charged with Burglary of a Building. Backseat passenger, 17 year old Delton Marpoe of Beaumont was charged with Burglary of a Building. The juvenile was released to a parent to face Burglary charges in the juvenile courts.
It is of great concern that they were armed with handguns and had body armor. The alert homeowner and the quick actions of the JCSO Deputies may have prevented these criminals from further victimizing our community. #OneCountyOneCommunity
