TRINITY – Two Trinity men were in custody this week in connection with a string of burglaries reported in the Pinecrest subdivision near Trinity. Sean Tabor, 18, was being held by Pasadena authorities on Monday but was scheduled to be returned to Trinity on Tuesday. Robert Kyle Alexander, 21, was arrested Sunday on charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and theft of copper. He was being held under bonds totaling $30,000. According to Pct. 1 Constable Woody Wallace, Tabor and two juveniles were previously taken into custody by Pct. 1 Deputy Constable Mark Cole in connection with a Westwood Shores burglary reported Sept. 30. Wallace said his office also was investigating four burglaries reported in September and early October in Pinecrest and said information obtained linked one or both of the suspects to all four break-ins. Alexander is being charged in connection with all four burglaries while Tabor is being charge in connection with two. In addition, a joint investigation between the Trinity Police Department and Wallace’s office has linked the two suspects to an attempted break-in reported Sept. 24 at Martin’s 7-11 in Trinity. Sometime during the early morning hours of that day, thieves tried and failed to pry open the back door to the store, but caused extensive damage.
