Released by the Van Zandt County Sheriff's Office:

On October 7, 2009 at approximately 9:00 a.m. Van Zandt County and Hopkins County Sheriff's Office Investigator's were investigating several burglaries that had occurred in the Counties.

One possible suspect that was currently in custody on un-related charges had confessed to numerous burglaries in Van Zandt County and Hopkins County. The suspect was taken by investigators to their residence just outside the City of Van. Upon arrival of Investigator's there was a suspicious vehicle in the driveway of the resident of the suspect that was in custody. Investigators were informed at that time that no one should be in the residence and the vehicle was believed to belong to a suspected drug user. As investigators approached the residence, it was determined that in fact someone was inside the residence. Located in the residence was three subjects identified as a Mike Dewey a white male, Kimberly Bourque a white female, and a Roger Hall a white male. The subjects were detained and a search of the residence was performed.

During the search several loaded syringes with what appeared to be methamphetamine and a spoon with a significant amount of a white crystallized substance, believed to be methamphetamines also was located.

Due to the fact that none of the individuals had the effective consent of the owner to be in the house, all three were arrested and charged with Burglary of a Habitation and Possession of Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 one to Four Grams. Also during the search, several items stolen out of Hopkins and Van Zandt County were located. All three suspects were booked into the Van Zandt County Justice Center and arraigned by Justice of the Peace Kirkpatrick and bonds were set at $25,000 on each charge. Hall was also determined to have been a wanted felon, wanted on a pardons and parole warrant.
