Three Arrested After Month-Long Investigation

On Thursday, April 21, 2022, a month-long multijurisdictional crime spree was brought to an end. RCSO deputies Darrell Phillips and Seth Hammonds, acting upon information provided by our dispatchers, immediately responded to 1618 Old Post Oak Rd and arrested Justin Brafford, Michael Hamby, and Thomas Wicks, all on outstanding warrants. Brafford and Wicks, suspects in area stolen vehicle and business burglary reports, were both in possession of stolen vehicles at the time of their arrest, Brafford himself was armed with a stolen 9mm handgun. Other subjects were also questioned on scene. A search of the immediate area, and investigation over the last few days produced other stolen property that included several vehicles, tools, lawn equipment, personal property, electronics, suspected narcotics, and prohibited weapons. The stolen property that was recovered included items reported from six different jurisdictions. The suspects have been charged with multiple counts of felony theft, burglaries, and more charges are pending. Please join us in commending Deputies Phillips and Hammonds, although outnumbered, used quick thinking and an outstanding tactical approach to take these individuals safely and professionally into custody, and were instrumental in the recovery of over $100,000.00 of stolen property
