Burglars of local storage facility captured

Hugo Saldana-Muniz, 23, of Azle, and Cody Derrek Barnard, 20, of Fort Worth were arrested last weekend by Parker County Sheriff’s investigators in connection with a burglary which occurred on Sunday, Feb. 28 about 1:30 a.m. at a storage facility in the 10300 block of East Bankhead.

Video surveillance of the facility showed two suspects cutting a lock on a gate entering the premises. Investigators said a victim reported the suspects cut the lock to a storage unit to gain entry and stole a nail gun, a generator and a drill, leaving a generator inside the unit which did not belong to one of the victims. Other victims reported the theft of a jet ski and trailer from the facility, which were recovered in Fort Worth earlier this month along with a bow and arrow set, a microwave, a miter saw, a tool set, a drill, a nail gun, a generator and two “AAFL” footballs.

Police reports indicate the suspect’s vehicle was stopped on an equipment violation, when it was discovered the vehicle was filled with stolen merchandise.

An investigation led officials to the suspects and the recovery of merchandise worth several thousand dollars, including a lock which was cut from the storage facility. Once in custody, investigators said both suspects implicated themselves in the crimes during interviews.

“This case was solved by using the skills of the investigators and officers involved,” said Sheriff Larry Fowler.

Both men were charged with seven counts of burglary of a building and two counts of theft of property each, with bonds set at $67,500 each.

As of Monday afternoon, Barnard remains in custody at the Parker County Jail. Saldana posted bond Saturday and was released from jail.
