League City Police Detective Recognized for Identifying ‘Juggers’

League City Police Department Detective Shayne Yount has been named the 2018 Fifty Club of Galveston County Officer of the Year for League City for his diligence and dedication to “jugging” investigations. Jugging is the term used to describe when criminals follow an unsuspecting victim from a bank, ATM or retail business and then rob them of their money or purchases.

 

An eleven-year veteran of LCPD, Yount has been described by his colleagues as the “guru” of juggers and is currently assigned as a detective in the Community Impact Unit (CIU).  While conducting surveillance during his jugging investigations, Yount has also viewed numerous narcotics transactions and thefts in-progress which have resulted in nearly two dozen arrests for various crimes including: robbery, misdemeanor and felony narcotics, felony theft, possession of child pornography, indecent exposure, and possession of a criminal instrument.

 

“Yount has taken his own time to train other detectives and patrol officers on how to identify not only juggers, but emerging crime patterns as well, so we can better focus our resources,” said LCPD Chief Gary Ratliff.  “He also has a great working relationship with other law enforcement agencies, which has led to numerous arrests in the Houston and Galveston area.”

 

In addition to jugging investigations, Yount has conducted surveillance, located, and captured a wanted capital murder suspect on the Texas DPS Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitive List. Recently, he discovered a trend of criminal activity at a local business and identified an organized theft ring that was targeting cell phone stores. Thanks to his efforts and leadership, both investigations ended with numerous arrests.

 

Detective Yount, along with officers from various Galveston County law enforcement agencies, were honored on Monday, May 7, by the Fifty Club of Galveston County at their annual awards luncheon. The Fifty Club of Galveston County was created for the dependents of officers in Galveston County. When an officer is injured or killed in the line of duty, the Fifty Club is there with immediate financial support
