East Texas Sheriff 's News


This is NOT the Exxon corner store in Pointblank in the story below as the name implies.  The store where the arrest occurred is the more recently opened store in the Darby Hill community.  I have traded at the Exxon corner store in Pointblank for many years and have never seen them sell any drug paraphanelia so I naturally went to investigate. 


The fuel stolen would have prevented the communications site from running on back up power during an emergency, when needed the most.  Please take a good look at the photos.

Press Release
San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Deputies Thwart Robbery

On November 3, 2018, at approximately 8:45 pm, San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Detectives and Deputies observed an Aggravated Robbery in Progress at the Dollar General, 12100 block of FM 2025 near Cleveland Texas.  As the three black male suspects fled the store, all with weapons, the suspects pointed their weapons at deputies.  Deputies fired upon the suspects striking one.  The other two suspects fled into a heavily wooded area.  The stolen money was recovered in the parking lot.  The injured suspect was transported to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries.  Sheriff Greg Capers requested the Texas Rangers to assist with this investigation.
Anyone with information about the identities of the remaining two suspects is asked to contact investigators at the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office.
This is an active and ongoing investigation and no additional information is available for release at this time.




San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas at their 140th Annual Training Conference held in Grapevine, July 21-24, 2018. More than 1,500 participants were in attendance at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center where they heard outstanding speakers, had opportunities for significant and timely training sessions and visited more than 240 exhibits each showcasing some of the latest technology law enforcement has to offer.
Sheriff Capers has been the Sheriff of San Jacinto County since November 2014. He distinguishes himself in his county and throughout the State of Texas as he assumes this leadership role within the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas.
The Sheriffs’ Association of Texas is one of the oldest law enforcement associations in the nation. The Sheriffs of Texas met for the first time on August 14, 1874, just four years after San Jacinto County came into existence. They met in the courthouse in Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas where Sheriff Sul Ross of McLennan County called the meeting to order and later became a notable part of Texas history.
The Sheriffs of Texas began annual training at these conferences just a mere four years later in 1878. These training conferences today are the largest composite gathering of law enforcement officers in Texas. Sheriffs and other county and local law enforcement officers, both federal and state officers along with security personnel attend. In addition to the annual training conferences, the Association conducts training throughout the year for law enforcement officers. The Sheriffs’ Association of Texas serves as a liaison with federal, state, county and municipal agencies and associations to promote cooperation, training, education and more efficient services to the citizens of this great State of Texas.
