‘Everything but the kitchen sink’

MW police work numerous burglaries

By CHRIS AGEE

Mineral Wells police officers worked through several burglary reports over the past week.

Police were able to recover several items taken from a vehicle in the 300 block of West Hubbard Street Sunday.

Reports show the complainant heard a noise outside of the residence and looked outside to find someone rummaging around in a vehicle parked at the location.

Shortly after the resident called police, officers arrived on the scene and tried to locate the fleeing suspect.

Though they did not find the burglar, police did recover the stolen items, which were returned to the complainant.

During their investigation, police determined the suspect broke the vehicle's steering column during the incident.

Two separate burglary reports involved complainants who reported noticing parts missing from their vehicles.

A resident in the 2000 block of S.E. 18th Street told police the tailgate from a Ford pickup truck parked at the location was taken sometime before he left for work Friday morning.

A short time later, a complainant in the 2200 block of S.W. 5th Street reported noticing the driver's-side turn signal lamp and assembly was missing from a Kia at the residence.

Police received the report of a burglary in the 1200 block of S.E. 12th Avenue Friday. According to a police source, an air compressor and assorted hand tools valued at a combined $700 were reportedly taken from a storage building located on the property.

A resident in the 200 block of South Oak Avenue reported a burglary Friday, telling police two cell phones and a billfold were missing.

According to police, the complainant reported noticing the items were not on an entryway table shortly after waking that morning. There was no evidence of forced entry included in the report.

A burglar reportedly took advantage of a malfunctioning door lock and entered a home in the 1800 block of S.E. 19th Street. Reports indicate the front door was locked but could be manipulated and released without a key.
