On Tuesday morning, February 20th, at approximately 7:45 am, the Galveston Police Department received a call containing additional information pursuant to a burglary of a vehicle that occurred on Monday, February 19th in the 1500 block of Strand Ave where a handgun was stolen out of the vehicle.  Officers met with the caller who was also the victim of the burglary, and he stated that he had video surveillance of the burglary occurring.  After reviewing the video, and talking to other witnesses, officers were able to identify the suspect as 17-year-old Daryus Cooper, a current Ball High School student. 


Galveston Police Officers, working closely with Galveston ISD Police, proceeded to Ball High School and spoke with Cooper who admitted to the Burglary and admitted to stealing the gun.  Cooper told officers that he had hid the gun in another student’s vehicle that was currently parked on campus.  Officers retrieved the owner of the car, a 15-year-old female student, who stated that she knew that Cooper had placed the gun in her car.  Officers then located the stolen handgun in the glovebox of the vehicle that was parked in the Ball High School parking lot. 


At this time the female student has been arrested and charged with the Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon in a Weapon Free Zone and has been remanded to the Juvenile Detention Facility in Texas City. As she is a juvenile, her name is not being released.  Daryus Cooper has been charged with Burglary of a Motor Vehicle and Unlawfully Carrying a Weapon with a total bond of $10,000.
