Pictured are the gun, narcotics, and drug paraphernalia taken from a home on Bucek Street in Schulenburg following an investigation into theft of electricity.

An investigation into stolen electricity led to two arrests for drug and gun charges in Schulenburg Tuesday evening, Dec. 11.

Schulenburg Police Chief Troy Brenek said the case began when a City of Schulenburg employee noticed the lights on at a house where the City had previous removed the electrical meter loop for nonpayment of utilities. The house is located at the corner of Bucek Street about a block away from the Schulenburg ISD campus.

Brenek said officers found that a resident of the home, 36-year-old Ryan Johnson, had bypassed the meter loop in order to power the home without paying for electricity. Police obtained a warrant for Johnson’s arrest, charging him with felony criminal mischief. Around 9:40 p.m. on Tuesday, Officer Duane Meagher and Sgt. Kyle Hengst of the Schulenburg Police went to serve the warrant.

By News Staff

Five Republicans filed for a place on the primary ballot for the Texas House District 13 election following incumbent Leighton Schubert’s surprise exit from the race.

Schubert withdrew from the race just ahead of the Dec. 11 filing deadline. The five candidates seeking his seat are David K. Stall of Fayetteville, Marc S. Young of Sealy, Ben Leman of Iola, Jill Wolfskill of Bellville and Daniel McCarthy of Brenham. Stall was chairman of the Fayette County Republican Party until he resigned last week to enter the race. Young is a retired oil and gas engineer. Leman is the former Grimes County Judge, who resigned in September to enter the race. Wolfskill and her husband own James Industries in Bellville, a company that supplies equipment and service to the refinery and power plant industries. McCarthy previously attempted a run for the District 13 House seat in 2014, but failed to get enough signatures to get on the ballot.
