Sheriff advises East Texans to take precautions after rash of burglaries

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - The Smith County Sheriff's Office is warning some residents to take precautions after deputies continue to work an increased amount of burglary cases.

Over the past three weeks, the Smith County Sheriff's Office said they have responded to around 15 burglaries, many of them auto burglaries, in the Running Meadows subdivision in Flint and in areas near Farm to Market 2493 and Farm to Market 2813.

A majority of the burglaries are occurring between 3 p.m. and during the early morning hours of the following day. Items taken include purses, jewelry, credit/debit cards, firearms and cash.

“We encourage everyone to remove all valuables from their vehicles, take the valuables inside their home, and lock their vehicles when not in use,” said Sheriff Larry Smith. “If a criminal cannot see anything of valuable in a vehicle, they are not likely to break into it.”

If anyone has information regarding these burglaries, please contact Detective Aaron Hinton at 903-590-2698, Smith County Dispatch at 903-566-6600 or Crimestoppers at 903-597-CUFF.
