WEATHERFORD (CBSDFW.COM) – Parker County Sheriff’s investigators are trying to solve a string of car burglaries.
They’re seeking the public’s help in identifying and locating two suspects in connection with seven vehicle burglaries last week.
Sheriff Larry Fowler said the suspects entered seven vehicles, taking personal items late Wednesday evening into Thursday morning, June 24-June 25.
Sheriff’s investigators said all seven vehicles were reportedly left unlocked. Items were taken from vehicles located on Cedar Bluff Court, Creek Side Drive, South FM 5 and Miramar.
Items reported as stolen included credit/debit cards, identification cards, athletic equipment, vehicle registration paper work, clothing, shoes, watches, duffle bags, back packs, makeup, cell phone charger, a lock box, binoculars, iPads, purses, keys, flashlights, glasses, a wallet and currency with a total value of more than $3,500.
Investigators said some of the items reported stolen were later located after the suspects discarded them in nearby bushes.
The first suspect seen in the surveillance still photo is described as a white woman, in her late teens to mid 20s, wearing a tank top and having dark blond or light brown hair with a medium to muscular build.
The second suspect is a man in his late teens to mid 20s, with short dark hair, wearing blue jeans and T-shirt with a slender build.
Anyone with information on either suspect is encouraged to contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at (817) 594-8845, or the Parker County Crime Stopper Hotline at (817) 599-5555. Callers may remain anonymous when calling the hotline. Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect(s) involved.
Sheriff Fowler said the best way to deter vehicle thefts is to remove all valuables every time you exit your vehicle, always remember to lock your doors, park in a well-lit area, install video or game cameras where possible and contact any suspicious activity in your neighborhood.
