Probes continue into Floresville, Poth burglaries
Law-enforcement agencies throughout the Wilson County News’ coverage area continue to report an ongoing surge in property-related crimes, such as burglary.
In Poth, police reported these two recent incidents:
•Feb. 17 at approximately 3 a.m., someone cut the power to the Ram convenience store at the Tetco gas station on U.S. 181 before throwing an iron water meter cover through the glass front doors. The suspects then stole two remote control helicopters valued at $199 each.
•Between Feb. 21 at 5 p.m. and Feb. 23 at 7 a.m., someone used a construction key to enter a house under construction on Dickson Street, stealing a range and approximately $3,239 in equipment and tools. The suspects also damaged a refrigerator, which they were unsuccessful in removing.
Deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office made one arrest and are set to make a second in connection with a Feb. 27 burglary of a storage building on F.M. 536 outside Floresville. As a result of an ongoing investigation, deputies have charged 30-year-old Albert Lee Castro Jr. with theft of property worth more than $1,500 but less than $20,000 for allegedly stealing and selling an all-terrain vehicle.
An arrest warrant will be issued for Castro’s alleged accomplice, 31-year-old Jenny Robles-Alfaro of Floresville. She is described as a Hispanic female standing 5 feet, 1 inch tall and weighing 163 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636) or http://bit.ly/NDrIut.
