ETX police seek 2 burglary suspects
Trinity, Texas (KETK) — Suspicious burglary activity in Trinity is putting the police department on the look-out for two men.
TPD cannot release the name of the two subjects as of yet, but they are described as two 18 to 19 year old black males. One of them is skinny and taller and the other is shorter and heavier built. If you see these subjects in your area and feel they are behaving suspicious, please notify the police department immediately.
Chief Jones and Sgt. Wheeler responded to the alley behind the Good Samaritan House on Elm Street. Residence reported two suspicious subjects lingering in the alley behind their homes. The residence did not recognize the two and it was unusual for people to be in the alley without purpose. The residence contacted the police department. When the two subjects saw that one resident had seen them, they separated. One subject began quickly walking north in the ally and the other quickly walking south. One of the residences confronted one of the subjects and asked what they were doing and why were they in the alley. The subject responded they were doing something for the Good Samaritan House. The Good Samaritan House was closed and when the attendants of the Good Samaritan House showed up to work it found the residence had been lied to by the subject.
Chief Jones and Sgt. Wheeler were able to identify the two subjects, based on the residence description and because they had seen them earlier the same day walking at the intersection of Caroline and Calvin Streets; and later at the intersection of Main and Walker Streets. TPD have dealt with the two subjects previously in regards to thefts, burglaries, assault, and drug related offenses. Chief Jones and Sgt. Wheeler attempted to locate the two but could not find them.
Later during the same day at approximately 5PM a resident, whom the back of his property meets the alley the subjects were in, reported someone had attempted to kick in his back door and burglarize his home.
Based on this information TPD is asking you to make sure your residence is secure, even in the daytime. It is statistically proven that most burglaries occur during the daytime and not at night like most people assume. If you see these two suspects, please call 911 or 936-594-2505.
