On July 7, 2010 at around 3:50 p.m., Longview Officers responded to 420 West Hope Drive for a report of a residential burglary that had just occurred.
Officers arrived and met with the caller, who is the mother of the victim. The woman told officers that she had gone to her daughter’s home at 420 West Hope Drive and located a strange car in the driveway. As she approached her daughter’s home to find out what was going on, she saw that her daughter’s front door had been damaged. The victim’s mother then saw a man exit her daughter’s home, carrying a large bag. The man entered the car and fled the location.
Witnesses to the burglary provided investigating officers with information that assisted officers to identify a possible suspect, Justin Marrow. Officers then went to Marrow’s home at 116 East Sycamore and found a car in the driveway that matched the description given by witnesses. Marrow was located inside his residence and property stolen from the victim at 420 West Hope was found in the car Marrow had been driving.
The stolen property was returned to the victim and Marrow was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation, a 2nd degree felony. Marrow was booked into the Gregg County Jail.
