Arrests For Stealing 1,404 Golf Balls, Home Invasion Assault, And Burglary Of A College Station Church

A Bryan police officer finding a pickup with no license plates on the city’s west side Tuesday night led to the arrest of the driver on charges that includes stealing 1,404 golf balls from the driving range at Traditions golf course. According to the arrest report, the pickup was towing a trailer with a newer model golf cart that had wet spray paint. Officers determined the pickup was missing. But the owner, from Fort Worth, did not want to report it as stolen. And there was no record of the golf cart or the trailer being stolen. The driver, 43 year old Shane Mix of Joshua…which is south of Fort Worth…is also being held on warrants from Tarrant, Denton, and Travis counties and the city of Frisco on charges that include failing to register as a sex offender and theft. The value of the stolen golf balls was estimated at $3,500 dollars.

College Station police believe a man was highly intoxicated when he entered a woman’s apartment at three in the morning on Wednesday. According to the College Station police arrest report, the woman was awakened by being struck multiple times in the face and head. Then she was dragged by her hair into the living room, where she was kicked and struck all over her body. And she was strangled twice over a five minute period, losing consciousness both times. The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment of her injuries. CSPD was notified by a woman walking her dog and hearing loud banging, a man yelling, and a woman yelling for help in Spanish. The man was still inside the home when officers arrived. 21 year old Gavyn Freeland of College Station was arrested on a charge of burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit assault. Freeland, who is out of jail after posting a $15,000 dollar bond, denied being in any kind of physical altercation.

A Bryan man released from jail on Sunday after serving two months for misdemeanor crimes was arrested Tuesday night on charges of breaking into Parkway Baptist Church. 28 year old Lamont Orange was found by CSPD officers in a wooded area north of the church. According to the arrest report, church employees called 9-1-1 after seeing Orange on their mobile devices from the church’s security system. The employees went to the church and continued to follow Orange on their mobile devices. Inside the building, officers found two ripped Bible pages that were stuck on the lenses of two security cameras with a blue soapy substance. After Orange was found, officers found a backpack with a Bible missing the ripped pages and a bottle of blue body wash. According to online records, this is the sixth time Orange has been in jail in the last two years. Orange remains in jail in lieu of a $5,000 dollar bond on the new charge of burglary of a building.
