This Week in Serial Crime: Alleged U-Haul Burglar
Torron Jermaine Alexander, 42, was hit with a charge of two counts of burglary for a series of crimes police say took him from one U-Haul business to another since late April.
Police said Alexander focused not just on U-Haul stores but also community storage locations and stole cash and televisions from one of those businesses. It wasn't clear if he was just a fan of those reality storage war shows and was maybe looking for something more.
Cops have accused him of targeting the following locations:
March 3 - U-Haul at 6505 Fondren
March 3 - U-Haul at 10621 Main
March 17 - Community Self Storage at 2515 Washington Avenue
March 18 - Community Self Storage at 2515 Washington Avenue
March 22 - U-Haul at 14225 Northwest Freeway
March 23 - Community Self Storage at 2101 South Voss
March 24 - Community Self Storage at 12906 Fry Road (Harris County)
March 26 - U-Haul at 8550 State Highway 6 North (Harris County)
March 30 - U-Haul at 10220 Old Katy Road
March 30 - Community Self Storage at 2515 Washington Avenue
April 13 - Community Self Storage at 2101 South Voss
April 14 - U-Haul at 5503 Almeda Road
April 22 - U-Haul at 2222 Southwest Freeway
April 27 - U-Haul at 6808 Bissonnet
Police say Alexander would scope out the locations and go there when they were closed. He had a stolen U-Haul truck, and would break a window to gain entry. Before he was arrested, he led police on a short chase.
"Authorities in Fort Bend County arrested Alexander following a short vehicle pursuit on May 5. He remains in the Fort Bend County Jail on charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, felony evading and a burglary of a U-Haul in that county."
