The Lubbock Police Department has arrested a 15-year-old juvenile in connection with several recent property crime in Southwest Lubbock, including vehicle burglaries, attempted home burglaries, and vandalism.

They released this statement on Friday afternoon:

Recent public attention has been focused on these as reported in the media and with numerous citizen posts on social media.  As such, in recent days, a portion of our Detectives were exclusively assigned to work on the problems being reported in that area.  Based on their hard work and proactive investigations, the department believes we have captured the main culprit responsible for several of these property crimes.  It is believed this person bears a similar resemblance to images recently posted on social media of a person committing these crimes, and this person will eventually be linked to many of the other recent property crimes in that area.

Numerous charges are expected based on the evidence and probable cause gathered to date.  The investigations are on-going and we anticipate more charges as the investigations unfold.

The public is encouraged to stay vigilant in those areas, and to immediately report such suspicious activity to our department via 9-1-1 for patrol response, intervention, and investigation.  We appreciate the public’s attention and concern on issues like this, and look forward to continuing to partner with our community to solve these and other crimes.
