Burglary suspects have criminal past

NewsChannel 11 uncovered a criminal past for the three suspects accused of stealing from dozens of families across the South Plains. Abundio Barboza, 21, Enrique Cuvillier, 23, and Michael Gray, also 23, remained jailed Wednesday night on $100,000 bond each. They face charges for burglary of a habitation.

Barboza faces an additional charge of evading arrest. Authorities say he was the driver who led them on a chase through Lubbock and Lynn counties Tuesday.  We first told folks about this case last week in a special edition of NewsChannel 11's Most Wanted, but then we didn't know who the suspects were. 

Now, all three are on the captured wall, and we found Gray has drug and forgery charges in Lubbock County, while Cuvillier has theft and forgery charges. Authorities also tell us that Barboza is wanted by the military.  "He, I believe, has a warrant out from the military for AWAL," Lubbock County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Paul Scarborough said. 

Scarborough says investigators could connect these suspects to 35-burglaries in Lubbock, Lynn, Hockley, and Hale counties. More than 30-firearms were taken in those break-ins. Investigators tell us they have recovered some property, but they're still searching for more.

Authorities say the burglars would watch their victim's homes to see when they were gone. Investigators say they would then strike in the middle of the day.  We learned that the victim of Tuesday's burglary, who turned out to be home, and whose call eventually led to these arrests, had seen a suspicious vehicle earlier. "This one yesterday (Tues.) had mentioned, I believe to her son, that there was a car that seemed to be out of place, and she was concerned about it," Scarborough said. 

The sheriff's department expects more charges to be filed against these suspects - including possible federal charges. Scarborough says the ATF is looking into several cases where guns were taken.
