Local Authorities Seek Information In Vehicle Burglaries In Church Parking Lots

Local authorities are seeking information about vehicles burglaries in church parking lots that occurred Wednesday night.

Sulphur Springs received a report at 8:20 p.m. Wednesday of vehicle burglaries at a Texas Street church parking lot. A pickup door was damaged and a window reportedly shattered. A phone and purse were reportedly taken from inside, according to police reports.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office is also investigating burglary of at least three vehicles in church parking lots in the Sulphur Springs area Wednesday night, April 6, 2022, while the occupants attended church services and activities. Two suspects allegedly tried to use stolen credit/debit cards at Wal-Mart; they are reported to have been in a burgundy Ford Escape.

The still images (above and below) were taken from surveillance video of the pair who allegedly tried to use the cards at two stores. One image shows a male wearing a red cap with white lettering, white t-shirt under a black shirt with white stripes on the sleeve, and blue jeans. A second image shows a thin individual with the same hat and shirts, light colored blue jeans that have rips down the front and wearing a dark colored mask covering his nose but not his mouth. Two additional images show a individual whose face is partially obscured by a black cloth or mask, and who was wearing a dark blue or black hoody zipped up and pulled over his head and what appear to be dark colored jeans. The final image shows a vehicle in a parking lot.

Anyone who has information about the suspects or the vehicle burglaries at local churches Wednesday is asked to contact Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Texas (903-885-438-4040) or Lake Country Crime Stoppers (903-885-2020).
