Numerous Burglaries Currently Investigated In Titus County.

From Titus County Sheriff’s Office

On Wednesday, Feb 9, 2022, during early morning hours, two burglars were interrupted by a homeowner who heard a noise in the general area of the dead-end on CR 4030 and the 4400-Block of U.S. Highway 67 East. Two subjects wearing what appeared to be grey or other light-colored hoodies fled the scene. They later discovered that the burglars had entered an unlocked vehicle to steal a handgun and some miscellaneous items.

On Saturday, Feb 12, 2022, a burglar forced entry into a metal shop building on the 7000-Block of FM 71 East in Talco, stealing a cordless pole saw. The subject in this burglary was wearing a light-colored hoodie, baggy blue jeans believed to be Wranglers, and was wearing glasses.

On Sunday, Feb 13, 2022, a burglar entered a vehicle parked at a residence on the 2400-Block of County Road 4844, taking a significant amount of cash. Around this time, a witness observed a suspected car burglar and chased him from a residence near the 1000-Block of County Road 4825. Again the suspects are wearing the same type of hoodie and masks.

Also, on Monday, Feb 14, 2022, an unidentified person broke into the Talco Store. However, the owners couldn’t find anything missing.

We believe that citizens should not need to lock their cars on their property. However, in the large majority of instances, a car burglar will pass over a locked vehicle for those that aren’t. Mostly from them not wanting to make noise to call attention to their activity. We believe it is vital to lock your vehicles and remove guns and other expensive items, taking them into your home, especially at night.

While camera systems cannot always identify burglars wearing masks and hoods, we highly recommend keeping some cameras operating around homes and yards. Sometimes, they prove invaluable.

Titus County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance with any leads that might lead to the identity of those responsible in these various cases. Persons with information can call (903) 572-6641 and speak to an investigator with details.

Titus County Sheriff’s Office encourages citizens to pay attention to any suspicious activity, including suspicious vehicles, and call the Sheriff’s Office. We will be glad to check every such call.
