This is a gallery of rogues - suspects who METRO police officers have arrested and charged with crimes.
These criminal ‘success stories’ were made possible thanks to the assistance received from citizens and the patrons of METRO. Other resources that help in making arrests include: evidence such as latent prints and DNA recovered at crime scenes; the METRO surveillance camera system, METRO’s partnership with Crime Stoppers of Houston www.crime-stoppers.org; and the hard work of officers of the METRO Police Department.
Shown below are the latest rouges captured by MPD. We’ll be posting new rogues as we find them. This is one more way METRO is working hard to keep your transit system safe.

The suspect in these cases used a knife to rob patrons at the Kuykendahl Park and Ride lot on two different nights. METRO PD Criminal Investigators were able to find the suspect because he used the patron’s credit cards. Armed with this knowledge, street informants told the Investigators who he was. Officers with the METRO PD Bus Marshal’s Unit, which are officers who work in plain clothes, conducted surveillance in and around the Park and Ride lot. Officers were advised that he was spotted in the area and he was placed in custody by uniform patrol officers without incident. This suspect was charged with Felony Aggravated Robbery and Credit Card Abuse. Officers then reviewed the Park and Ride lot for security concerns; METRO Facility Maintenance addressed all concerns raised in the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design Review. This is just another example of TEAM WORK between the different METRO PD Divisions and METRO Departments in building a safer METRO.
|On April 20th, 2011, the pictured suspect has committed theft at the METRO Lee P. Brown Administration building. He stuck a clip board through a service window to get a cell phone that was left on a counter.
Surveillance video was recovered and a patrol alert was issued to area law enforcement officers. The same day the alert was issued, METRO Police Officer Guandique spotted him at the City of Houston jail. He was being booked into the jail on an unrelated charge.
The suspect was then interviewed by MPD Investigators. He confessed to the crime of stealing the cell phone and received a 30 day jail sentence.
