Fourteen vehicle burglaries that occurred between Jan. 22-28 are being investigated by the Somervell County Sheriff’s Office, according to information provided by Chief Deputy Dwayne Griffin.
The burglaries include nine within the Glen Rose city limits.
“SCSO has recovered most of the valuables that were removed and these items have been returned to the victims,” the news release states. “The suspects are disposing of all property except for cash and gift cards.”
The SCSO stated that there have been no arrests made in connection with the burglaries, but investigators “have several leads and continue to question persons of interest which may be connected to these cases.”
The incidents happened at times ranging from 8 p.m.-4 a.m. and all involved vehicles that had been left unlocked.
The SCSO said that it “urges all citizens to lock their vehicles at all times. It is always best to remove valuables from the vehicle, however any valuables left inside should not be visible from outside the vehicle.”
Anyone with information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspects involved in the burglaries or any other crime in the county are encouraged to provide anonymous tips to the Somervell County Crime Stoppers by calling (254) 897-7777.
