It would be another almost five hours before the pair - Bryan residents Adam Craig Crow and Tanya Ray Albrecht - were pulled over in the stolen tan Suburban and taken into custody on multiple charges. Owner Travis D. Stackhouse was out of town on vacation and was unavailable for comment. "I don't know how or why it happened, but we are fixing the problem". That's when police say Crow and Albrecht stole it. Albrecht faces an additional misdemeanor charge of abusing a corpse.
