VIDEO: Lufkin Crime Stoppers seek help in solving burglary
Lufkin, TX (KETK) — Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help solving a residential burglary.
At 3:30 p.m., on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, unidentified suspects burglarized a residence located in the 1000 block of Crooked Creek Drive in Lufkin.
Video cameras mounted outside the victim's residence captured images of the suspects and their vehicle coming and going from the residence.
The videos show that at 2:30 p.m, a small SUV parked in the victims' driveway and the driver of the vehicle approached the front door of the residence. After knocking at the door and getting no response, the suspects drove away. Over the next forty-five minutes, the suspect vehicle, a red or maroon early 2000's SUV drove past the residence more than a dozen times. Minutes after the suspect vehicle's last pass by the residence, the homeowner arrived, dropped off his sons and left again.
Just before 3:30 p.m., while the victim's sons were inside, two suspects entered through the rear of the residence and stole a television, a wallet, and a jar of coins. It appears that the suspects parked their vehicle at another location, possibly at Trails Apartments on Crooked Creek Drive, and made their way along a creek to reach the residence.
