Burglars strike along F.M. 1347
STOCKDALE -- Deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office are investigating two reported burglaries that occurred May 12 on F.M. 1347 south of here.
Sheriff’s Investigator Roland Treviño said that Deputy Franklin Ashton responded to the first home at 3:27 p.m. The resident, who was away from home for less than 90 minutes, returned to find the home’s rear door unlocked. A shotgun and two rifles, a Sony Playstation video-game system, a 42-inch LCD television, and a Ryobi cordless drill with batteries were reported stolen.
Then at 4:28 p.m., Treviño said Deputy Nathan Drzymala and Cpl. Stephen Moore were called to a second home after the resident returned to find a front door had been kicked open. After deputies determined it was safe to enter, the resident discovered that a .22 caliber bolt-action rifle, a 20-gauge shotgun, a 37-inch flat-screen television, and a camera were missing.
In both incidents, deputies found narrow tire tracks -- belonging either to a small passenger car or truck -- leading up to the door that the suspects used to access the homes. Treviño said in one of the incidents, neighbors reported seeing a small red passenger car and a white pickup truck in the area. No further description was given.
The investigator reminds residents to call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535, anytime they see a suspicious vehicle in the area. Callers should provide as much descriptive information as possible, such as the vehicle’s make, model, color, license-plate number, and direction of travel.
Anyone with information about these incidents is urged to contact Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636) or www.wilsoncountycrimestoppers.com. All tips remain anonymous.
