LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin police officers arrested the last of three Angelina County women Wednesday after they allegedly burglarized a rent house in the 100 block of Toran Road Sunday.

Lufkin police officers arrested the last of three Angelina County women after they allegedly burglarized a rent house in the 100 block of Toran Road Sunday.

One woman was arrested at the scene Sunday, and the other two were taken into custody earlier this week after Lufkin Police officers located them.

Brandi Lacresha Beltran-Hernandez, 23, of Huntington, Amber Leann Hector, 18, of Lufkin, and Holly Marie Horton, 18, were all charged with burglary of a habitation, which is a felony. Hector and Horton were also charged with possession of a controlled substance between four and 200 grams.

Bond was set at $15,000 for Beltran-Hernandez, who bonded out and was released Monday. Hector and Horton are still being held in the Angelina County Jail. No bond has been set for either woman at this time.

According to police reports, the woman returned home to find a vehicle backed into her driveway. She then spotted three women later identified as Beltran-Hernandez, Hector, and Horton loading personal property from her rent house into the back of the vehicle.

Upon learning that the woman was calling the police, Hernandez allegedly began putting the woman's belongings back in the residence, the arrest affidavits stated. Hector and Horton fled the scene on foot before Lufkin Police officers arrived, leaving the vehicle parked in the driveway.

Beltran-Hernandez was arrested at the scene, and the woman recognized Horton as one of the suspects who fled the scene. Information found in the suspects' vehicle helped law enforcement officers confirm that Hector was the other person who fled the scene.

Hector and Horton were arrested at Woodland Hills Apartments in the 1800 block of East Denman Avenue Tuesday night.

Detective J.B. Smith, the public information officer for the Lufkin Police Department said LPD officers responded to a report of drug activity at that location. While speaking with people at the apartment complex, an officer recognized a vehicle in the parking lot as one connected to Hector and Horton, both of whom were wanted on burglary warrants.

After learning which apartment the two women were in, the LPD officers went inside and found Hector and Horton hiding in a bedroom. Officers also allegedly found about eight grams of amphetamine, syringes, a drug smoking pipe, spoons, and small baggies.
