Thieves target East Texas VFW's. Over the weekend, thieves broke into the VFW in Frankston, Mineola and Lindale. On Sunday, the VFW in Lindale was hit for the second time. Authorities say thieves broke in through the back door and stole more than $2,000 worth of liquor. Two weeks ago, thieves got away with $1,500 in cash.
"They are prying open the back doors, and they are pulling in behind the VFW's where people, they don't see them, so the VFW's are being hit pretty hard right now," said Smith County Constable Dennis Taylor, Precinct 5. Constable Taylor says a $700.00 reward is being offered for any information leading to an arrest on the Lindale VFW breakins.
