METRO Park & Ride- Kingsland


Recommended Posts


Security cameras at METRO’s Kingsland Park & Ride lot - with the help of a four-legged officer - led to the arrest of a 24-year old man, who is now facing burglary charges and a felony assault charge.

Christopher Sean Burks (photo at left) was arrested Nov. 23 and charged with two counts of burglary of a motor vehicle, and interference with a police service animal, which is a felony.

METRO police say one of their officers at TranStar spotted Burks on the security cameras walking through the lot, looking into the vehicles. Armed with a hand full of rocks, Burks smashed the window of one of the vehicles, and broke into another vehicle, according to investigators.

MPD and Harris County Precinct 5 Constable units surrounded the area to search for Burks, who was seen fleeing the lot. METRO’s K-9 officer Vigo tracked the suspect, who was hiding along Mason Bayou.

Investigators say Burks then attacked the dog, and after a brief struggle with both Vigo and its police handler, Officer John Wiggins, Burks was taken into custody and treated for dog bites.

Police say Burks stole small items of little value and abandoned them at the lot before he fled. Investigators believe Burks may be responsible for two other vehicle break-ins at the same lot.
