Catch 273
February 22, 2011

Joshua Leon Marshall, 24, was wanted for Capital Murder.


The Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force hauls in another one… “Mr. 273″… Joshua Marshall… wanted for the capital murder of Reginald King last year in a Harris County apartment complex parking lot. Investigators say the motive was robbery.

As of now, Marshall is held without bond in the Harris County Jail.

Catch 272
February 7, 2011

Police say Claude Everett Jackson was involved in Reliant Stadium Thefts.

Catch 272… related to Wallet thefts at Reliant Stadium during Texans games.

HPD tells me 48 year old Claude Everett Jackson was arrested in Brazos County in January for Forgery… a tip after our story ran connected him with the Reliant cases. He was in jail before the story ran, only Police in Houston didn’t know it, now they do thanks to a viewer tip. Police say Jackson withdrew $10,000 from one unsuspecting fan’s account, $4,000 from another.

Jackson remains in custody as of this date in lieu of $20,000 bond. He has not been convicted of these crimes.

 We’ll count it.

Catch 271.
January 30, 2011

Eric Carr was wanted for using a police officer's stolen credit card info.

Catch 271… Eric Carr, 27. Carr was wanted for using stolen credit card information. That credit card info happened to belong to a veteran Houston Police Officer. Carr also was charged with Marijuana possession, and has some city warrants. He has been arrested and charged… not convicted. HPD’s North IFR Team picked him up following a Houston Crimestoppers tip… we ran the story about two weeks ago.

Catches 267-270.
January 6, 2011

Details are thin. But Montgomery County has sent word to us that four fugitives featured on the Wheel of Justice have been recently rounded-up… the cases weren’t big ones, but catches nonetheless…

267. Tonya Chandler was wanted for Theft (accused of stealing tools from a local business).

Catch 266.
December 27, 2010

266 fugitives caught since Wheel of Justice debut in April, 2007.

If you missed it… we accounted for 17 caught fugitives the other day…

See the facebook post here…. and “like my fan page” while you’re at it…

In addition… we’ve also tallied this catch… for 266…

Caught Christmas Eve… Arthur W. Brown, 54… walked away from a Houston halfway house. HPD found Brown at a Salvation Army following Crimestoppers tip. In 1979, Brown was convicted of raping two women and a teenage girl.

Thank you Viewers, Law Enforcement, and CrimeStoppers… an unstoppable trio, making our city safer. 

Catch 248.
December 14, 2010

Javunte Bradshaw... caught after a short foot chase, HPD tells me.

Catch 248… Javunte Bradshaw, (now) 18. Bradshaw was wanted for two counts of Burglary (Home) in the Settegast Heights Neighborhood. Detective tells me he ran… but didn’t get very far once he was spotted by an HPD TAC (tactical) team on the Northeast Side. He picked up an evading charge for that move.

He’s held in the Harris County Jail in lieu $22,500 bond.

Clean Up Your Street…
November 30, 2010

With some help from HPD’s Neighborhood Protection Corps…

I have pulled together some helpful information to help get your street “up to snuff”…

This information pertains only to City of Houston residents:

If you think a property on your block isn’t “up to code” (overgrown weeds? unsafe structure?) and you want city inspectors to check it out: Call 311… and ask for “Neighborhood Protection”.

You can learn more about the Neighborhood Protection Corps, here.

If you want to know when the city’s “Heavy Trash” crew is making rounds in your neighborhood: Check out the Solid Waste Schedule by Zip Code …

And while you are at it… you should know the rules for Solid Waste/Tree Removal.

The reality: The Neighborhood Protection Corps investigation team has been cut by about 40% in the last 10-15 years. Demolition of an unsafe structure is a long process, that usually takes no less than 18 months. Property Owners have the ultimate responsibility of caring for property.

Catch 247…
November 22, 2010

Michael Strawhun, 30, caught in Conroe… less than 24hrs. after he appeared on the Wheel of Justice.

Strawhun is charged with Aggravated Assault. Harris County Deputies say he hit  his girlfriend with his car… twice.

Catch 246*…
November 22, 2010

Larry O'Neal, 32, in custody. Was he ever in Houston?

*Asterisk next to this one… because this fugitive actually turned himself in according to Police.

32 year old Larry O’Neal was wanted in connection with the death of a 31 year old Virginia woman he had recently connected with on Facebook.

We profiled this case because investigators thought O’Neal had hopped on a bus headed for Houston following the murder.

It is unclear where O’Neal spent the last two weeks… but he did turn himself into Roanoke, VA police.

He is charged with three felonies… in connection with using the victim’s credit card after her death.

At this point, O’Neal has not been charged with murder.
