LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man convicted as a juvenile for shooting and killing someone in 2006 is back in jail on new charges.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice filed a parole violation on Stephen O'Donald Albro Jr., 21, following his arrest in Oct. 2011 arrest for forgery of a financial instrument and false report to officer.

Albro bonded out of jail on Oct. 14. TDCJ spokesman Jason Clark said a parole warrant was issued on Oct. 18, 2011, and Albro had been on the run until his arrest on Saturday.

According to Lufkin Police spokesman Det. J.B. Smith, an officer made contact with Albro on North Timberland and found him to have the outstanding warrants. Another officer placed him under arrest.

According to a previous KTRE report, Albro shot and killed someone during a robbery in Sept. 2006. Albro was a juvenile at the time and was sentenced to 30 years for murder and aggravated robbery.

Albro was granted parole on June 3, 2010.

He was arrested again in Sept. 2010 on charges of evading arrest, possession of a controlled substance and parole violation. According to Angelina County court records, the evading arrest charge was dismissed after he pleaded guilty to a class B misdemeanor of attempted evading detention. The drug charge was also dismissed. He served 180 days on the charge.

Clark said records show the parole board continued his supervision on March 28, 2011, with no modifications.

Albro has been under TDCJ supervision since June 3, 2010, following a transfer from Texas Youth Commission.
