Satellite TV Installer Accused of Residential TheftsFeatured Stories, News Friday, May 17th, 2013
A Caldwell man working as a satellite TV installer is accused of residential thefts in Brazos and Burleson counties.
27 year old Kevin Cormier was arrested Friday afternoon at his apartment.
Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk says on Wednesday, deputies responded to a theft call south of Wellborn at a home in the Duck Haven Estates development. The homeowner reported jewelry was missing and the only person in the home was Cormier.
Deputies arrived before Cormier left, and during questioning he admitted to the theft and showed where he had hidden the jewelry in the service vehicle. 43 pieces of jewelry was recovered, with an estimated value of $12,678.50.
Kirk says investigators also found other items in the vehicle that were not claimed by the homeowner. One of the items was marked with a name that matched a name Cormier’s service log for a home in Burleson County.
Investigators contacted the other home owner who advised that they had recently reported a theft to the Burleson County Sheriff’s Office and that they had recently had a satellite TV installer at their home. That led Brazos County investigators to contact the Burleson County Sheriff’s Office to confirm the theft had been reported and began collaborating in the investigation.
Kirk says Cormier was arrested at his apartment, where investigators recovered other items from the Burleson County theft.
