Arrest report for Aug. 13

Houston Police tracked a stolen ring taken in a Kingwood home burglary in July back to a Kingwood resident who allegedly pawned it at a Houston area pawn shop. According to Harris County court documents, the burglary occurred in the 2100 block of Little Cedar on July 19. The homeowner discovered in the morning that cash, as well as her $2,600 wedding ring had been taken from her purse in the kitchen during the nighttime hours. The homeowner told police the back door had been unlocked. Using a tool called LeadsOnline, a database recording pawned items across the country, police located the missing ring at a pawn shop on FM 1960. The homeowner subsequently identified the ring as her wedding ring and produced a receipt as well as a photo of herself wearing the ring as proof of rightful ownership. Pawn shop documents led police to Nicholas James Bumpers, 22, of Kingwood, as the person who allegedly pawned the stolen ring. Bumpers, who was previously convicted of burglary of a habitation in 2007, was charged with state jail felony theft on Aug. 11. He is being held in Harris County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
