Burglary Charges: Cleveland police have charged two men with Burglary of a Building and Felony Theft after the duo was allegedly caught in the act of breaking into a business called Gates Sales. Cleveland Police Captain Scott Felts said Khari Gibbs of Houston and Antonio Sheridon of Conroe were charged after being caught in the act when patrol officers responded to an alarm at that business. According to police, one of the pair was caught after a brief foot chase into the woods, the second when an alert citizen spotted him and notified officers. Cleveland Municipal Judge Bob Steely set bond at $5,000 on each charge.


Child Still Critical: A seven-year-old boy injured in a one-vehicle crash that claimed the life of his mother remains in critical condition at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. Mont Belvieu Police Chief Virgil Blasdel said the child’s mother; Christine Nicole Groome of Baytown, was killed when she was ejected during that wreck. The fatal accident is still under investigation, and no determination has been made as to why the driver lost control of the vehicle.


Baskins Sold: Baskins Western Wear store has been purchased by California-based Boot Barn. Boot Barn has purchased all 30 Baskins’ stores in Texas and Louisiana, including the Liberty location.  Information from various sources indicates there won’t be any noticeable changes for awhile. We are told Baskins is still operating under that name, although those visiting the Baskins website will be redirected to the Boot Barn site. Boot Barn is considered the largest specialty retailer of western and work wear in the U.S. and, with the acquisition of Baskins’ 30 stores, has stores in 23 states.


New DaytonBusiness: A new retail business is making plans to come to Dayton. According to Dayton City Manager David Douglas, the small discount store is planning to build on Hwy 321 at the corner of Cherry Creek Road. David Douglas said there is still work to be done and it could be about six months before construction begins.
