Demarques Whitehurst arrested for Grove Apts Incident

On Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2020, San Marcos Police arrested 21-year-old Demarques Milan Whitehurst in San Antonio, TX., for crimes that occurred in November at The Grove at San Marcos, 1150 E. River Ridge Parkway.

SMPD detectives determined that Whitehurst was involved in both the November 17 armed home invasion and the November 20 armed assault, robbery, and auto theft of a blue 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe that occurred at the apartment complex.  

In conjunction with the San Antonio Police Department SWAT team, the SMPD Criminal Investigation Division executed search and arrest warrants at Whitehurst’s apartment in San Antonio.  The subject was taken into custody without incident.  During a search of the apartment, detectives located firearms, ammunition, and items belonging to the victim which were stolen in the incident on November 20.

Demarques Whitehurst, of San Antonio, TX., was booked into the Hays County Jail on two counts of Burglary Habitation Intend Other Felony, one count of Aggravated Robbery, and one count of Aggravated Kidnapping.  As of this release he remains in jail with $300,000 bond for the four charges.  

SMPD wishes to thank the San Antonio Police Department SWAT team for their valuable assistance with this operation.

San Marcos Police detectives are still working to identify Whitehurst’s accomplices and to locate the stolen Chevrolet Tahoe.  Anyone with information about the incident or the whereabouts of the stolen Tahoe should contact Detective Aubry at 512.753.2306 or paubry@sanmarcostx.gov.
