POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff's Office have arrested the third of three people who were involved in a plot to break into a home on Glover Road and steal marijuana and tools from its occupant.
Marquise DE Vaghn Norman, 21, of Livingston, was arrested and charged with first-degree felony engaging in organized criminal activity. He has since posted a bail amount of $30,000 and has been released from the Polk County Jail.
The other two suspects, Jordan Opal Orta, 19, and Malik Earl Robinson, 18, both of Livingston, were each booked in to the Polk County Jail on first-degree felony engaging in organized criminal activity charges.
According to the arrest warrant for Robinson, the incident occurred on Tuesday. A PCSO detective responded to a call from dispatch about a burglary in progress on Glover Road. When he got to the scene, he spoke to the victim, who told him that two men had attempted to rob him.
The victim told the PCSO detective that he tried to find the two men after they ran into a wooded area near his home.
When the detective reviewed the man's surveillance video, he was able to positively identify one of Norman from prior dealings with him, the affidavit stated.
While the PCSO detective was on scene, authorities stopped Orta's vehicle because it had been seen in the area. She said she was there to pick up Norman and Robinson.
Later, Orta admitted that she took Norman and Robinson to the home on Glover Road, so they could steal tools and marijuana from its occupant. She allegedly waited for them to come back, but she left.
