WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) - By Courtney Lane - bio | email

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Smith County Sheriff's investigators have identified the man  they say burglarizing residents along the same street near Whitehouse.

Thursday, they issued an arrest warrant for Lindsey David Maynard the III for Aggravated Assault.

Early Tuesday morning, two homes were targeted on Nix Lane outside Whitehouse.

Officers managed to ID the suspected burglar as Maynard by using a number of techniques.

Investigators dusted for fingerprints, and had some evidence like a knife left behind at one of the scenes.

A man tried to break into one home, but the first victim physically fought him off. But then, just a block away, a woman became a victim in her own bedroom. She woke up to discover a burglar by her bed, who than took off with everything from her wallet.

Investigators cannot confirm if Maynard is the same suspect for both break-ins. But, they are now looking for him.

Ironically, Tyler Police had just arrested him Monday for shoplifting.

They ask you not approach Maynard. He is believed to be armed and dangerous.

If you see him or have any information on his whereabouts, call the Smith County Sheriff's Department at 903-566-6600.
