GRAPEVINE (CBSDFW.COM) – The search for a serial burglary suspect spans throughout North Texas.

Grapevine police say 23-year-old Jesus Chavez is wanted for targeting homes in broad daylight to steal gold jewelry.

Police believe Chavez could be responsible for up to four burglaries in Grapevine. Authorities were led to Chavez through physical evidence from two of the home burglaries.

Grapevine Sergeant Robert Eberling believes Chavez knocks on the front door to see if anyone is home.  If no one answers, he breaks in through a back door and steals jewelry. The fear is he could turn violent.

“If he enters a home, and the homeowner happens to be there — there could be some sort of confrontation and someone could get hurt,” says Sergeant Eberling.

Authorities in Arlington, Mansfield and Ellis County are searching for Chavez.

If you have any information, you are urged to call 911 or contact the Grapevine Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (817) 410-3200.
