Suspects face burglary charges
FLORESVILLE -- Grass-hoppers and scorpions are not the only annoyances plaguing area residents lately. Officials are investigating two burglary cases involving homes in the Floresville area.
Six males between the ages of 15-16 are in the custody of the Atascosa Juvenile Detention Center in Jourdanton, each charged with burglary of a habitation in connection with an incident here that was reported to police June 17. This was after a First Street resident called police upon returning from a family vacation.
The resident reported that items such as a television set, Xbox video game console, clothing, shoes, and an air compressor were missing from their home, said Lt. Chad Clark of the Floresville Police Department. The resident also reported that the windows on a truck parked outside the residence were left open, when she distinctly remembered them being closed when she left for vacation.
The investigation revealed that groups of two or three of the teens entered the home on three separate occasions while the family was away. Furthermore, Clark said, the suspects allegedly located a spare key to the truck, which was used to transport the stolen goods from the home.
In a separate case, deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office have charged Ramon Perez Jr., 48, of Von Ormy with burglary of a habitation in connection with an incident reported June 19. According to sheriff’s Investigator Roland Treviño, Deputy Franklin Ashton responded to a home on F.M. 2579 after the property owner reported that someone entered his home and stole items, including weapons, a chain saw, and a television set.
A mutual friend of both Perez and the victim had informed the victim that Perez was attempting to sell some of the stolen items June 18 outside a bar in Poteet, and that he allegedly admitted to stealing the items from his former employer. Treviño said Poteet police arrested Perez on unrelated charges and later determined that the items in his possession were stolen.
Deputies have yet to recover a plasma TV, a .22 caliber rifle, and a Swarovski spotting scope, Treviño said.
