Constable seeks information on attempted burglaries
Special to The Monitor
WHITTEN–Van Zandt Precinct 2 Constable C.B. Wiley reports a string of attempted burglaries in the Whitten area recently.
An attempted burglary on FM 1651, east of the Whitten Fire Department, occurred around 11:30 a.m. Jan. 10. A female resident heard knocking at her front door and witnessed a tall African American man in his 20s standing on her porch. As the suspect started kicking the door, the woman shouted out she had a gun and would shoot.
The suspect jumped off the porch and ran into a waiting car which was occupied by two other men. The car appeared to be a grey 1996 Honda.
This incident was reported three-quarters of a mile away from another location where a burglary attempt was reported at 3:30 p.m.
The resident from the afternoon attempt got a license plate number which was registered to a Lancaster resident.
In the event of a burglary or attempted burglary, Wiley advises residents to obtain a license plate number, vehicle color and direction of travel and report that information to 911 or local law enforcement agencies.
“Don’t place yourself in danger, “ Wiley says, “that’s what we get paid the big bucks for.”
Several other burglaries have been reported in the Whitten area. Wiley is asking anyone with information on attempted burglaries to call him at (903) 880-5955.
“Any information might just be the lead we need,” Wiley said.
