Purse Burglar Strikes Another Tyler Home

A burglar, again, strikes a home in South Tyler. This time it happened on the 1300 block of South Donnybrook Wednesday morning.

Police believe the burglary is linked to at least 29 other smash and grab burglaries in Tyler since last year.

The latest victim, Darwin Darr, awoke at 8 a.m. and found the glass in his back door had been smashed. The burglar made off with Darr's wallet, which had cash and credit cards inside. Police say a purchase was made on one of Darr's cards around 5:15 a.m. at a pay at the pump gas station on Highway 155.

The victim says a search of his home by a forensics team turned up little.
