Lufkin, Texas — Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying at least three suspects involved in the theft of a cigarette receptacle and a flag and flagpole.
Security cameras outside of a Lufkin-area business captured images of truck arriving at the entrance to the business just after 3 a.m. on Aug. 22, 2012. As soon as the truck came to a stop, two suspects exited the passenger side of the vehicle and ran to the area immediately outside the entry doors to the business. Once there, the suspects lifted and turned over a sand-filled cigarette receptacle, dumping the sand from it. The suspects then loaded the receptacle into the bed of the truck, and reentered the vehicle through its passenger side before the vehicle sped away. A short distance from the business, the truck stopped again and one of its passengers stole a U.S. flag and a flagpole from the yard of a residence.
