Driveway Robbery?

No, but a friend said that the other night (Wed? Tue?) there were a bunch of guys driving around Garden Oaks mugging people at shotgun-point. It was right around the Petrol Station area. Not sure if they caught them or not.

Pretty brash, considering how residential that area is.

Unsure... but if Texas doesnt pass a law like AZ, then perhaps the State Of Texas can sponsor/provide free CHL classes. What say you?

Great idea. There's nothing that warms my heart more than the thought of a bunch of toothless hillbillies play-acting like they're Wyatt Earp and the streets of Houston are the Old West. That sounds safe.

From a Friend in the Area:

"I remember when this happened (last week some time). There were several

reports from around the area of guys riding around in a white car robbing

people on the street, driveway, sidewalk, etc.... I remember that one of

the victims was messing with his telescope when they pulled up and robbed

him. This happened on the east side of shepherd on the 34th near Graham

park. As far as I know, none of the robberies happened near the Petrol

Station."

So, there were no driveway robberies in the Heights at all then, as this location is most decidedly in Garden Oaks.

It's annoying how the news cites everything from Richmond to 1960 as "The Heights". Thanks for the updates.

i had been reading about the saga on another forum from the mouth of one of the 4 that were robbed. he did confirm they caught the car with all 4 guys in it and they had gotten some of their goods back too. they removed the thread though because of the pending cases/jail time.

They did? Awesome! Did you see an article somewhere? I'd like to send it to a friend

There's a small article on channel 13's website. I used their search box for "telescope". It came up with something like, 'stargazer fights back'. Happened on 4-29 and bad guys used a pellet gun. Not much to the piece but there may be something on other stations' sites too. Maybe on FOX?

They do. Have you read the chron lately? I think their reporters barely made it out of middle school.

At least they distinguish that there are neighborhoods in the loop... Talk to people from Katy or Woodlands, they consider everything inside 610 loop as "downtown".

Sometimes...I've read chron articles where a crime occurred in "northwest Houston" that were the Heights, Oak Forest, Acres Home, or even Cypress.

Yeah, that's what I always hear too. Heights = northwest. So everytime there is a shooting out near Champions, I'll get some friend from the 'burbs emailing to ask if it was near me. le sigh.
