Posted

In a brief statement on social media, Harris County Constable for Precinct 5 Ted Heap announced that two men had been arrested Dec. 2 in a series of fraud and vehicle theft cases. Andres Estuardo Campbell, 25, and Tuan Vuong, 27, were arrested for the alleged crimes in a joint operation with the Houston Police Department, the statement said.

The two are accused of purchasing multiple high-end luxury vehicles using stolen identies and later selling them to buyers at a fraction of the cost, the statement said.

Campbell was arrested in association with 14 open felony warrants from Harris County and other areas across Texas while Vuong was arrested on a warrant for robbery.

Additional charges are pending in Harris County and with the U.S. Postal Inspector’s Office which is handling a federal investigation into Campbell’s actions.

Harris County’s inmate search shows Vuong was booked Dec. 2 under a charge of Robbery-Bodily Injury and has a court date of Dec. 4.

Campbell was booked that same day and a bond of $50,000 each has been set for two separate charges of tampering with a government record. Other charges against Campbell are related to actions associated with the alleged identity theft.
