Burglars busted after watchful eyes call authorities

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - For Fumie Moulton, Thursday was like any other day. She took her kids to school and headed home. But when she arrived...things weren't how she left them.

Her door was open and there were tire tracks across her front yard. When she stepped inside...she couldn't believe it. She found her bedroom ransacked and items missing from all over her house.

The crooks even took off with a box holding family jewelry.

"When I later realized that the jewelry box was taken...that's when I cried," said Moulton.

Moulton is from Japan. She is the only daughter in her family. the box was filled with her mother and grandmother's jewelry.

"That was very hard for me to accept," she said.

Just a few miles away, another house was burglarized. A resident of the area spotted the suspicious vehicle and phoned authorities.

Not long after, the same vehicle was reported by another resident across Smith County.

After the tip, Smith County Deputies pulled the truck over. Inside were two adult males and two juveniles. And, the truck was loaded with stolen property.

James Williams Gullette and Coby Robert Gordy are charged with two counts of burglary of a habitation.

Even though Fumie Moulton will be getting her belongings back...she says this event changed her life.

"It's just sad to think that we always have to worry about somebody doing wrong to you instead of something good," she said.

In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
