On January 11, 2015, Deputies with Harris County Constable Ron Hickman’s office responded to the 1300 block of Bishops Place in the Glenn Loch Farms subdivision, in reference to a residential burglary.
Upon arrival the home owner who was at the residence reported that he heard the doorbell ring several times but did not see anyone when he looked out of the window. He then heard his 3 dogs barking aggressively and upon investigation observed an unknown male walking up the stairs. At that time the male and female homeowners were at the top of the stairs and the homeowner’s 3 dogs was at the bottom of the stairs.
“The burglary suspect found himself in the middle of 3 mad dogs and a homeowner armed with a hockey stick” said Asst. Chief Mark Herman. “The suspect probably made a good decision and surrendered until deputy constables arrived.”
Upon arrival, Deputy Constables immediately placed the suspect under arrest, and identified the suspect as James Dean Chapman. Chapman was observed on surveillance video ringing the doorbell, looking inside a window, crouching and then walking to the street out of the cameras view.
It was discovered that Chapman had entered the home through an unsecure rear door, and his vehicle was located parked a few blocks away. James Chapman was arrested, charged with Burglary of a Habitation, and booked into the Harris County Jail.
Charge: Burglary of Habitation – 2nd Degree Felony
Court: District Court 232
