Houston, Texas (KTRK) – A 5 Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy is under investigation after the burglary victim’s MacBook Pro ended up in his home. Representative Celso Castillo is still in force, but he’s not patrolling the streets, according to Constable Ted Heep’s office.

The story began on October 28. Nathan Kilkors came into his Westbury home from work around 2 a.m. and went to bed. When he opened his truck later that morning, his heart sank.

“As soon as I opened my door I saw the center console, and I knew what had happened. I looked in the back seat, and I knew my bag was gone,” Kilkors said.

Kilkors noted that his MacBook Pro was in the backpack. Immediately, contact Constable and file a report.

The deputy who took the report told him that several neighbors had also broken into their cars. In addition, he was told that another deputy had stopped some suspicious teens early that morning, but nothing was found.

Killcourse then ran the “Find My iPhone” app, hoping his laptop would ping it. Shockingly, that night, while he was still at work, it worked.

“At about 9:30 p.m., and I got the physical address of my MacBook, I got really excited and said, ‘Yeah, I’m going to run into this guy and get my MacBook back,’” he said.

On October 29, Killcourse proceeded to test the connection from his neighborhood in Westbury all the way to Katy, and was shocked at what he discovered.

There was a patrol car at Precinct 5 parked in front of the house where his laptop had been hit. Killcourse knocked on the door and Deputy Castillo answered.

He confirmed to Kilcourse that he investigated the car break-in, but that he was not in possession of Kilcourse’s laptop.

“He said he interviewed teens, but I didn’t have a MacBook,” Kilkors recalls. “I tell him like, ‘My MacBook says it’s here and you tell me it’s not.’ And he said again, ‘I don’t know where your MacBook is, but it’s not here.'”

Kilkors says that at one point Castillo’s deputy invited him to “look around” at his house and opened the back door of his patrol car to show he had no laptop. Kilkors left feeling uneasy, and called supervisors in District 5.

Shortly thereafter, he said, Castillo called him claiming he had done a thorough search and found the laptop in the boot of his patrol car. Later, a supervisor returned the laptop to Killcourse.

Detective Fifth says Castillo told supervisors that he forgot to index and turn on the laptop at the end of his shift. However, he says that this explanation does not match his MacBook location history.

“At 9:30 p.m., you have to turn it on so that it pings, and you have to know where it is,” Kilkors said.
