Leon Valley authorities received a complaint from an individual today asking for assistance in a burglary case. The complainant had an idea of who the suspect was because she had seen the suspect on a San Antonio news station connected to a former Leon Valley Police Case that involved road rage along Bandera Road.
Detectives began to investigate the individual’s complaint and information was developed that linked the suspect in the burglary allegations to another case where she was wanted on a felony warrant out of Leon Valley. Detectives found the suspect’s car in the area of Wurzbach and Snowden at an apartment complex. Once the vehicle was located, surveillance was established and detectives were able to identify the location of the suspect where a search warrant was obtained. The warrant was served at approximately 1445 hours through joint efforts of the Leon Valley Police Department and the San Antonio Police Department. The San Antonio Police Department had burglary cases on the suspect as well.
The Suspect that was wanted in Leon Valley, Keandra Simpson, was arrested for the Leon Valley felony warrants and San Antonio Warrants. Charges included credit card abuse, possession of a controlled substance, and theft between $750.00 – $30,000.00. Stolen property was recovered inside the apartment where the suspect was arrested which related to numerous burglaries in the San Antonio area.
“This case is an example of officers listening to citizens and taking prompt action. I am pleased with our detective division and am happy that we were also able to assist San Antonio with a suspect that they had on their wanted list as well. Both cities were able to get a thief off of the streets through joint law enforcement efforts” stated Captain Ruben Saucedo of the Leon Valley Police Department.
