Rusk, Texas (KETK) — On Monday, November 11, 2013, a deputy was called to a home in the 7000 block of County Road 1201 outside of Rusk for a burglary.
The homeowner had reported that she left for work at 7 a.m. and returned home at 10 p.m. that night. When pulling into the driveway she noticed that an 18 foot flatbed trailer was missing from in front of the house.
After entering her home, she also noticed that her television and DVD player had been stolen from her bedroom as well.
After officers arrived on scene, the doors and windows to the home were checked and found that all windows were locked with the exception of one window at the back of the home. Authorities believe this is where the suspects entered into the home.
Items stolen from the home were a Vizeo Brand 42 inch flat screen TV and a small unknown brand DVD player. The 18 foot flatbed trailer was black in color with wooden decking. The trailer had been loaded with uncut timbers that were going to be cut into firewood, an estimated $2,200 value.
If anyone has any information on this incident they are asked to call the Cherokee County Crime Stoppers.
