Case Grows Against Back-Door Burglar

One by one, Tyler law enforcement is connecting a series of break-ins to a man they have in custody. Tyler police say they've tied Lawrence Madlock to ten more burglaries. And two more outside of Tyler, but still in Smith County. With the previous connections, that makes a total of eighteen robberies linked to Madlock.

He has been charged in five of the cases so far. Investigators are going over 19 other "back door burglary" cases to see if Madlock, or his wife, Penny Green, are connected.
