1 arrested, 4 men wanted in home invasion in West Bexar County

Drugs may be factor in incident on Amber Breeze, BCSO says

SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: Deputies have arrested the homeowner in a home invasion in West Bexar County early Thursday morning. They are still searching for four masked men.

Edgar Gonzales, 26, is facing multiple charges, including possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. 

Authorities believe drugs were the reason for the break-in. 



Four men wearing masks kicked in the front door of a home and punched a man in the face early Thursday in West Bexar County, sheriff's officials said.

The home invasion unfolded around 4:30 a.m. in the 9700 block of Amber Breeze, sheriff's officials said.

One of the men was armed with a gun when they burst into the home where an 18-year-old man who was babysitting three children was assaulted, sheriff's officials said.

"They were upstairs at the time. They were not assualted. They just went in and assaulted the 18 year old," Johnny Garcia, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Office, said. 

No serious injuries were reported.

Sheriff's officials said drugs may have been a factor in the home invasion.

"I believe the home owner has some history on possession charges, possibly waiting a court date sometime later next year I believe. I do know that this home has some history for calls for service here," Garcia said.

The home's surveillance cameras showed the men driving away in a silver Chrysler 300, sheriff's officials said.

"If you have any video surveillance or have any information on the suspects or anything pertaining to this crime call 210-335-6000," Garcia said.
