Burglar thwarted by armed man

 

by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer

The armed owner of DGJ Transport Inc. foiled an attempted burglary early Thursday morning, but was shocked to discover the offender was a former employee.

Howard R. Beatty Jr., 48, was arrested by Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office on charges of burglary of a building; evading arrest or detention with a vehicle; resisting arrest, search or transport; and criminal mischief. He was also apprehended on a Guadalupe County warrant for criminal mischief, valued between $2,500 and $30,000.

The incident occurred at around 2:45 a.m. when deputies were dispatched to DGJ Transport Inc. at 1430 Fort Clark Road for a report of a burglary in progress. The owner of the business, Domingo Garza Jr., who also resides on the property, called 911.

Garza fired warning shots, but the disturbance did not deter the burglar.
