Two mug shots that you might not normally put together were forever joined thanks to arrests at the Super 8 motel in Humble.
Adrian Nathaniel Comstock, 29, and Patricia Lynn Hickman, 56, were both arrested for aggravated robbery for a home invasion that included a shootout near New Caney last week.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said the two residents -- "a 59-year-old female and a 65-year-old male companion" -- were both shot during the 2 a.m. robbery.
"Investigators believe that the female victim fired several shots at the suspects with a pistol as the suspect(s) fired several rounds with a shotgun," the MCSO said.
Fifty-nine years old, has "a male companion" and isn't afraid to trade lead with two robbers? This was obviously a woman not to be messed with.
The two victims were hospitalized, but the robbers escaped on foot.
Investigators tracked them to the no-doubt luxurious Motel 8, where they found Comstock and learned he was wanted on a felony theft warrant.
He implicated himself and others in the robbery, the MCSO says, and Hickman, of Spring, was soon arrested and charged.
MCSO did not provide the nature of the relationship between the two, so feel free to speculate.
