Two arrested in connection to Mauriceville Utility District theft

PRESS RELEASE

On Tuesday, June 30, 2015, around 9:15 a.m., the Orange County Sheriff’s Office received an
emergency call in reference to a theft in progress.  The caller was an employee of the
Mauriceville Utility District and reported that he was following a truck pulling a stolen trailer
and generator from a Mauriceville Utility District well site off FM 2802 in Mauriceville, Orange
County, Texas.
The caller was tailing the truck on IH-10 and when the truck noticed he was following, the
suspect began driving at a high rate of speed weaving in and out of other traffic.  The suspect
then exited near FM 1132, quickly looped around, and turned into the parking lot of Diversified
Metals.  The suspects then tried to disconnect the stolen trailer with the generator and while
doing so, the caller and several Sheriff’s Deputies drove into the parking lot.  The two suspects
were arrested and the trailer and generator were returned to the employee of the Mauriceville
Utility District.
The two suspects in the truck were identified as 31 year old black male, Shaun Arceneaux of
Raywood, Texas, and 23 year old white male, Robert Williamson of Liberty, Texas.  Both were
booked into the Orange County Jail for 3rd Degree Felony Theft.  No bond has been set and they
remain in custody.
