On July 2  in the early morning hours, Shenandoah Police Department patrol units were dispatched to the area of Pinehill in reference to a suspicious person call.  

An observant resident saw a male subject pulling on car door handles in driveways and immediately called and reported what they observed.  Officers responded and checked the area but the suspect was not located.  A short time later a second call came in and responding officers located an unoccupied stolen vehicle in the area of Driftwood and Shenandoah Drive.  The vehicle was reported stolen out of Harris County. 

An Oak Ridge North police officer, who responded to the area to assist in locating the suspect, observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed and running stops signs on Holly Hill.  The Oak Ridge officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop and the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed.  The vehicle traveled west on Blue Ridge and came to a stop at the dead end.  The driver was immediately detained. 

During the subsequent investigation,  it was learned that the detained driver was the individual observed earlier pulling on car door handles in the area of Pinehill.  It was further learned that the vehicle the suspect was driving had just been stolen out of a driveway in Shenandoah Valley.  The driver was arrested and charged with multiple felony offenses.  During this investigation, two stolen cars and two stolen handguns were recovered.  

We would like to remind everyone to take your car keys, hide valuables out of plain sight and lock your car doors.  Firearms are being targeted during car burglaries, so please secure all firearms in your residence.
