Car Burglary Suspects Arrested at Hobby Airport

October 1, 2007 - Charges have been filed against four suspects arrested in relation to multiple burglaries of vehicles in parking garages at Hobby and Bush Intercontinental Airports.

Three suspects, Miguel Antonio Cabrales (H/m, DOB: 11-7-87), Danny Alexander Cantero (H/m, DOB: 2-16-88) and Michael Alvarado (H/m, DOB: 7-16-88) are charged with burglary of a motor vehicle in Harris County Criminal Court #4. The same charge is pending against the fourth suspect, Eron Otero (H/m, DOB: 11-06-87). Photos of the suspects are attached to this news release.

On Sunday, September 30, about 3:45 a.m., a Houston Airport System security employee observed the suspects loading stolen property into a Ford Expedition. The security guard notified his dispatcher and asked her to call the police. Once HPD officers arrived at the scene, the security guard was able to give them information about where he last saw the suspects and their descriptions. Officers apprehended Cabrales, Cantero and Alvarado at the scene. The fourth suspect (Otero) was arrested at his residence after the others provided information on his possible whereabouts.

Stolen property and tools were confiscated from Otero’s home and his vehicle. The investigation is continuing.
