POLICE SEEK SUSPECTS
IN HORIZON CITY BURGLARIES
On two occasions recently the Clint ISD maintenance yard in Horizon City was burglarized,
causing damage to the facilities, and more than a thousand dollars worth of tools were stolen,
making this the Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Tuesday, June 22nd, at 6:15 P.M., Horizon City Police received a call stating that the fence to the Clint ISD maintenance yard at 12516 Darrington Road in Horizon City had been cut and a trailer had been broken into. An investigation revealed that the same trailer had been broken into the day before, and that tools which were stolen had been replaced. Now these new tools were also stolen.
Three days later, on Friday, June 25th, just before 7:00 A.M., officers were dispatched to the same location. It was discovered that offenders had again cut the fence and entered two vans, stealing tools inside. The tools taken in both thefts include 3 hammer drills, a mitre saw, reciprocating saw, compact drill, and generator. Along with the damage to the fence and to the vehicles, total damages for these crimes are estimated at approximately $3,000.00.
It is unknown who the suspects are, or what type of vehicles they were driving, but investigators believe that someone must have seen the persons or their vehicle lingering around the maintenance yard on those days. There would have been something out of the ordinary going on.
If you have information about the identity of the suspects or their location, and the identity of the suspects’ vehicle, please call Crime Stoppers immediately at 566-TIPS (566-8477) or on-line at www.crimestoppersofelpaso.org. You will remain anonymous and, if your tip leads to an arrest, you can qualify for a cash reward.
