A Houston man faces a pair of felony charges after a Houston Police Department investigation of an early December burglary.

Cody Bowman, 22, of 713 W. Chestnut St. in Houston, is charged with second-degree burglary and stealing $750 or more (both class D felonies)

According to a written report, an officer was dispatched at about 6 p.m. Dec. 3 in reference to a theft at a 704 W. Chestnut St. residence. The officer made contact with a man and woman who live there, and the man said he and the woman were going to make a trip to a store and found that a Pioneer CD player had been swiped from his 2006 Jeep Wrangler and the vehicle’s glove box had been damaged.

The man stated he wasn’t sure if anything else had been stolen, but he called the next day to indicate that about $2,000 worth of tools had been removed from a shed on the property, along with a GPS unit and a radar detector.

On Dec. 7, the officer received a tip from an informant that two men had been involved in the burglary, and that the majority of the stolen goods were at the third man’s Ozark Street residence. The officer went to the house and the man told him the tools given to him by Bowman were in his truck and that he would turn them over to the officer.

After further investigation, more of the tools were recovered and Bowman was identified as the primary perpetrator.

He is in the Texas County Jail on $150,000 bond.
