Suspects In Custody For String of Burglaries

Posted:

We're learning more about two teens caught breaking into a South Lubbock County home Friday morning. The sheriff's office believes the teens were involved in at least ten other burglaries - with the potential for more.

A passerby caught those two teen boys breaking into a home on FM41 near Slaton and alerted authorities. Lubbock County Sheriff's Deputies had both in custody a short time later.

At this time, investigators can only say the suspects are two 17-year-old boys. The Lubbock County Sheriff's office is still trying to determine a link between the suspects, and other burglaries in the county.

Investigators learned some of the stolen property was at a home in Lubbock. When authorities went to the home in the 5600 block of Amherst, the people inside wouldn't let them in. Investigators had reason to believe stolen fire arms were also inside, so they called in the tactical team to assist.

Four of the people inside later surrendered to police. Authorities arrested one on a parole violation and took the three others in for questioning.

"What's been recovered so far ranges from flat screen TV's to appliances such as refrigerators, stoves to some electronics," said Major Don Carter with the Lubbock Sheriff's Office.

In addition to investigating other related crimes, the sheriff's office will also be working hard to get these stolen items back to their rightful owners. It's also believed narcotics may have been in the house though no word yet from investigators on that.

Again, this is a developing story and we of course will stay on top of it to bring you any new developments as they arise.
