Crime of the Week

Beginning February 16, 2015, Crime Stoppers of Lufkin's Crime of the Week case will also appear on the Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers website.  At www.DETCS.tips you will find information concerning crimes and wanted persons from Angelina and surrounding counties.

Three options for submitting a tip:

  • Online (Submit a Tip)
  • Telephone (936-639-TIPS)
  • Text message (text keyword 639TIPS and your tip information to CRIMES -- numerically, CRIMES is 274637)

Crime Stoppers programs are private, non-profit organizations that assist law enforcement but are not part of law enforcement.  As long as the tipster uses the published Crime Stoppers tipline telephone number, website address, or text message instructions, neither Crime Stoppers nor any law enforcement officer/investigator will know the tipster’s identity.  Anonymity is not Crime Stoppers’ promise -- it is the law.  In Texas, a person, including a law enforcement officer, may commit a crime if they intentionally or knowingly divulge the identity of a Crime Stoppers Tipster.  To further ensure a tipster’s identity is never known, Crime Stoppers pays rewards only for anonymous tips; tipsters who identify themselves are not eligible for payment.

Tips are accepted regarding any crime or wanted person, whether publicized by Crime Stoppers or not.  In-progress crimes and emergencies should be reported to law enforcement (dial 9-1-1 for emergencies).

As of August 19, 2013, Lufkin Police Department holds one warrant for the arrest of Miguel Hernandez Monsivais.  Lufkin PD Detectives obtained the warrant for the first degree felony offense of Murder, following an investigation into an August 14 vehicle fire and death.

 

Additional warrants related to the vehicle fire and death were obtained for Kristine Maldonado Garcia, for the offense of Murder, and for Daniel Andres Muniz, for Tampering with or Fabricating Physical Evidence.  Both of these warrants were served Saturday, August 17; Chambers County Sheriff`s Department arrested Daniel Muniz and St. Landry Parish Sheriff`s Department (Louisiana) arrested Kristine Garcia.

 

The warrant describes Miguel Hernandez Monsivais as a 22-year-old (born October 17, 1990) Hispanic male who stands 6’2" tall, weighs approximately 240 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.  The images of Monsivais shown here were captured by Angelina County Jail July 31, 2012.

 

The listed warrant information was correct and current when published, but may no longer be current or correct when read.  Warrants and charges must be verified before arrest.  NEVER attempt to apprehend any suspect yourself; doing so may be dangerous and Crime Stoppers will not pay a reward to anyone involved in such action.

8/12/2013 - Smash and Grab
Click to Enlarge

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying the suspects responsible for the burglary of a convenience store located in the 100 block of Champions Drive in Lufkin.

Security cameras show that two suspects arrived at the store in a black, 2010 to 2012 year model Dodge Charger.  Both suspects shown in the videos appear to be black males but they were wearing long sleeve clothing, gloves, and ski masks.  The suspects used a sledge hammer to force entry into the store through the front glass door and, once inside, they filled trashcans with packs of cigarettes.

The suspects needed just over three minutes to enter the store, steal the merchandise, and flee the area but law enforcement hopes that the video of their crime will help identify them.

Click here to view portions of the security videos showing the suspects, their vehicle, and their crime.

The short time they spent in the store and the equipment they brought along, such as the protective clothing, trashcans, and breaching tool, suggests that this was not the suspects` first convenience store burglary.  If that assumption is correct, someone reading this information or watching the video knows the suspects, knows about their crimes, and can lead law enforcement to them.

If you can identify either of these suspects, or if you can provide information concerning this or similar crimes, call Crime Stoppers of Lufkin at (936) 639-TIPS or click here to submit an anonymous tip.  You never have to give your name and Crime Stoppers may pay a cash reward for information that leads to an arrest related to this crime.

8/5/2013 - Finders Keepers
Click to Enlarge

Some adults never learned that “finders keepers, losers weepers” is nothing more than a schoolyard saying.  In the real world, when you find and keep someone else`s property, you commit a crime.  That is exactly what the suspect shown here did in a Lufkin-area store.

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying the female suspect who stole a wallet mistakenly left behind by another customer.  The crime occurred several months ago, so the suspect likely thinks she got away with it but you can make sure she does not.

The store`s video camera system shows that the victim left her wallet at the cash register and the suspect, who was the next customer in line, stole it.  The suspect used a purse to hide the wallet until she could move the purse and wallet to her shopping cart.  With her purchase complete, the suspect took the wallet and left the store in a white, Pontiac G6.

The suspect is a black female who, at the time of the theft, wore a red shirt and jacket, and had a bandana or scarf covering her hair.

7/29/2013 - No Worries

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a suspect involved in a less-than-successful theft of merchandise from a Lufkin-area department store.

According to the store’s loss prevention employee, the suspect entered the store just after 2:00 PM on June 08, 2013, and pushed an empty shopping cart to the home appliance department.  Using the store`s security video system, the employee monitored the suspect as he selected two, GE brand window air conditioners, loaded them into the shopping cart, and then pushing the cart and ACs out of the store without paying.

The employee caught up to the suspect outside the store and asked him to show his receipt for the purchase of air conditioners, which had a combined value of more than $1,000.  The suspect fumbled around in his pants pockets as if looking for the nonexistent receipt and then abandoned the stolen merchandise, ran to a vehicle in the parking lot, and fled the area.

From the security video, you can see that the suspect is a white male who, at the time of the theft, had dark and short-cut hair and a thin beard and mustache.  He wore a red t-shirt with the Buck-ee`s Beaver logo on its front and "No Worries" on its back, blue jeans, and flip flops.

The employee identified the suspect`s vehicle as a dark green, late 1990s model GMC Yukon.

7/22/2013 - Bank Bag Bandit
Click to Enlarge

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a suspect who stole a bank bag containing cash from a Lufkin convenient store.

Around 11:30 the night of April 10, 2013, a male suspect entered a convenient store located in the 800 block of North Timberland Drive in Lufkin and purchased a pack of Newport cigarettes.  While the clerk was retrieving the cigarettes and processing the transaction, the suspect noticed a bank bag in an open drawer behind the counter.

To distract the clerk, the suspect asked for scratch-off lottery tickets.  When the clerk turned her back to get the tickets, the suspect reached across the counter, took the bag from the drawer, and concealed it inside his jacket.

The clerk finished the transaction, gave the suspect the lottery tickets and his change, and the suspect began to leave the store but he dropped the bag and his change as he turned away from the counter.  The suspect was lucky that the employees didn`t notice his mistake but he was unlucky in that the store`s security camera captured video of everything.

The suspect was described as a tall, thin, black male wearing a plaid, hooded, flannel-type jacket, a black hat with the word "EAST" in white letters across its front, and black tennis shoes and socks.

A family day at the pool ended with an assault and Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying the suspects.

Just before 5:00 PM on Sunday, June 23, 2013, two woman (the victims) and two children gathered their belongings to head home from a neighborhood swimming pool on Champions Drive in Lufkin.  When they reached the gate, which remains locked to prevent unauthorized entry, they encountered two young women (one being the suspect) and three young men seeking entry to the pool.  The victims told the five would-be swimmers that they must be residents of neighborhood to use the pool and that the homeowner`s association issues each resident a pool-gate key.  Not convinced that the others were residents and not wanting to accept responsibility for their use of the pool, the victims chose not to allow them to enter.

As the victims exited the pool area, the suspect pulled on the gate and tried to prevent the victims closing it.  The suspect grabbed and then shoved one victim and slapped the face of the other victim.  This ignited a brief fight.  During the fight, one victim dropped her Motorola Atrix telephone and she believes that the suspect left with it.

The suspect left the area in a silver Chevrolet car with damage to its rear bumper.

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a man who robbed a video game store.

Just before closing time on June 21, 2013, a man entered GameXchange on South Medford Drive in Lufkin.  The suspect browsed the store and asked the employees about video games; seeming to the employees to be just another customer.

When the last customer left the store, leaving only the suspect and two employees, the suspect selected a game from a shelf and proceeded to the checkout counter.  As an employee processed the suspect`s purchase, the suspect displayed a handgun and ordered the employees to handover all of the money from the cash registers.

The employees complied with the suspect`s orders and then the suspect marched them, at gunpoint, into a back room of the store before he exited the building through the back door.

The store`s security cameras captured the robbery and show that the suspect was wearing black jogging pants, possibly Adidas brand, a black long-sleeve t-shirt, and a black hat with what appears to be a Chicago Bears logo.  The employees described the suspect as a white male, approximately five feet ten inches tall, in his twenties.
