(AP) -- A pair of suspected burglars may soon find that â€śfinders keepersâ€ť doesnâ€™t apply when the owner reports the items stolen.
Iesha Zamacona, 22, of Henderson was arraigned Feb. 7 by Pct. 5 Justice of the Peace Joe Sorrells for charges of second degree felony burglary of a habitation and Class B misdemeanor theft of property.
Zamaconaâ€™s bonds totaled $16,000.
Jerry Lynn Fontineau III, 24, of Henderson was arraigned by Sorrells the same day for two counts of second degree felony burglary of a habitation.
Fontineauâ€™s bonds totaled $30,000.
According to a Feb. 6 deposition given by Henderson Police Department detective Eric Sullivan to Rusk County assistant district attorney Richard Kennedy, Fontineau entered a habitation Dec. 15 without of the consent of the owner to allegedly commit theft.
â€śHPD officers and detectives were able to recover several stolen items from the defendant that were taken during the alleged burglary,â€ť Sullivan said.
According to a Feb. 12 deposition given by Henderson Police Department Henderson Police Department James Dukes to assistant distract attorney Kate Hegar, Fontineau and Zamacona entered a home without the ownerâ€™s consent to allegedly commit a theft.
Dukes said police reports state the owner said the home was burglarized with items taken.
â€śDuring the investigation of other cases, some of the victimâ€™s property was recovered from the defendant and a co-defendant admitted taking part in the offense with this defendant,â€ť Dukes said.
Under Texas law, a second degree felony burglar of a habitation is punishable by 2-20 years in a state prison and/or a fine not to exceed $10,000.
