Off-duty officer nabs burglary suspect SWEENY — A 38-year man was arrested on an outstanding burglary warrant Saturday after a Sweeny police officer on his way back from the fair parade spotted the man. Roger Dale Luker, had been walking down FM 1459 near Highway 35 when he was arrested without incident. Sweeny police department officials said the burglary charge stems from a Sept. 15 break-in on Old Ocean Avenue where a checkbook was stolen and three checks were later passed in Bay City and Brazoria County. Officials said Luker is a suspect in two other residential burglaries and charges are pending on those cases. Property taken in one of the burglaries has been recovered. Luker is held in the Brazoria County Detention Center with bond set at $25,000.
