ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man was arrested accused of stealing guitar amps from his grandparents to pawn for cash.

On March 19 deputies received a call from a residence in the 200 block of Joe C Lane, about a theft that already occurred.

When deputies arrived they spoke with the alleged victim, who informed them that her grandson may have committed a crime.

An arrest affidavit stated the grandmother had noticed her husband's guitar amps were missing from the laundry room. The grandmother identified her grandson as the suspect, Brian Steve Flurry, 32, of Lufkin.

A further investigation, led deputies to run the suspect's name in a data base for pawn shops, they soon found that Flurry's girlfriend had pawned two guitar amps on August 27, 2011, at Insta Cash Pawn on Timberland Drive in Lufkin.

According to the arrest affidavit, on April 11, investigators spoke with a witness that told them Flurry admitted he took his grandfather's guitar amps without his permission and gave them to his girlfriend to pawn to get money to pay bills. The witness also stated that the pair pawned the amps with the intent to get them out; and put the money back before Flurry's grandparents noticed.

Flurry had lost the amps by not paying on them, according the witness.

He was arrested Tuesday and charged with theft. Flurry was booked in the Angelina County Jail and released on bond.

The offense was enhanced to a state jail felony because the property was allegedly stolen from an elderly person.
