One Burglar In Custody and One Still At Large
This morning around 5:20 a.m., Courvilles Catering, 1700 Rose lane at Hwy 90, Beaumont, Texas was burglarized. The surveillance video captured the images of 2 men tearing into the cash register and stealing other items from the restaurant to include 5 briskets.
Once the video was reviewed, Deputies and Officers from several agencies recognized the white male in the video as 51 year old Tomas Moraida. JCSO Detectives worked with the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office and were able to obtain a Burglary warrant for Moraida’s arrest.
JCSO Warrant Officers arrested Moraida in Beaumont this afternoon AT 2:05 P.M. in the Avenues neighborhood, (Forsythe and Avenue E). The white Ford sedan that he was driving was seized and towed. The investigation continues. Everyone is curious-we did not recover the brisket.
We are still searching for the identity of the black male accomplice involved in this burglary. (see photos) If you have information about this burglary please contact Crime Stoppers at 409-833-TIPS(8477), log onto www.833TIPS.com or download the P3 app. You will not be asked your name and you could be eligible for a cash reward.
