PORTER, TX -- On August 29, 2022, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, while patrolling in the Porter area, recognized a male they know from previous law enforcement encounters as Brandon Oliver, who had an active Felony Warrant for Burglary of a Building. As Deputies approached Brandon to make the arrest, he ran behind the Porterwood Shopping Center to evade Deputies but was captured shortly after. Deputies placed Brandon in custody for the Burglary Warrant, and he was also charged with Evading Arrest and Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine).

MCSO Detectives investigating other burglaries in the area learned of Brandon’s arrest and, upon further examination of their evidence against the original burglary case, determined Brandon was also responsible for two additional burglaries.

Brandon is presently in the Montgomery County Jail for the original Burglary Warrant, Evading Arrest, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and as of this writing, two additional charges of Burglary of a Building. Brandon is also a suspect in several burglaries currently under investigation.
