LPPD – Captures church burglar
News Release
Wednesday, July 11, 2018

On July, 8th, 2018 the La Porte Police Department (LPPD) received a report for the burglary of La Porte First Baptist Church 310 S. Broadway, La Porte Texas. LPPD Detectives were assigned the case and quickly discovered surveillance video capturing the image of the suspect on July 7th, 2018 as he walked around and then inside the church building. That video was posted on the LPPD Facebook page, and the suspect was identified as Noel Christian Scholes of Shore Acres, Texas.

Detectives located Scholes who admitted to committing the crime and led detectives to some of the stolen property. Detectives contacted the Harris County District Attorney`s Office who accepted the charge of Felony Burglary of a Building. The injury visible on Scholes’ chin occurred as he was fleeing the scene and crashed on his bicycle.

Scholes was arrested and is currently held at the La Porte Jail awaiting bond and subsequent transfer to the Harris County Jail.
