Burglar on the loose in Rusk

A prowling burglar is on the loose in the city of Rusk, and police are trying to track him down.

Police say the burglar hit 9 times just last Thursday in the Lee community, and twice downtown.

Cars, businesses and homes have all been targeted. Police say the string of break-ins actually began a few weeks ago after, officers stepped up patrol and discovered a man wearing all black clothing one night.

They went over to talk to him, and he took off running and escaped.

"Shortly thereafter, we get a call over at the nursing home where one of the ladies was going to get into her car. she saw a black male wearing all black clothing standing beside her car. The minute he saw her, he took off running and her car had been broken into....her window was shattered," said Asst. Chief Roy Cavazoz of the Rusk Police Department. 

If you have any information, please call Rusk Police.
