Patrol officers have identified a suspect in connection with a pair of vehicle burglaries reported to police over the last week, according to police.
While no arrest has been made in these cases as of Thursday morning, July 15, 2021, the investigation into the string of vehicle burglaries is ongoing. Sulphur Springs Police investigators anticipate filing for warrants in connection with some of these cases.
Officers received about half a dozen reports of vehicles being entered without permission and items being stolen from them. Vehicle burglary reports recorded by police over a one-week period included Austin Acres, Drexel Drive, Kellie Circle, Houston Street and Hodge Street addresses. Firearms, wallets with IDs were among the items stolen. A coin-operated bottled drink machine on Reservoir Street also sustained damages when someone attempted to break into it.
Police on Wednesday morning posted photos and around lunch time posted two videos on social media depicting individuals entering Sulphur Springs residents’ unlocked vehicles at night and going through them. They were asking at that time for community assistance in identifying the suspects.
Patrol officers through diligence reportedly identified at least on suspect in connection with a couple of the burglaries Wednesday.
