A residential burglary was reported in the 4000 block of Beulah Drive on Sept. 18 at 8:19 p.m. A homeowner heard a security alarm blaring from her neighbor’s house and immediately stepped out of her front door to see what was going on. She saw two male suspects, one wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans and the other wearing dark clothing. The second suspect was carrying a ladder and she heard them both say, “Oh crap, we set off the alarm.” They then ran southbound on Beulah Drive where they both entered an older model silver two-door Honda Civic. The deputy conducted a protective sweep and found that the suspects forcefully broke the glass window leading to the kitchen. The residence didn’t appear to have been entered, since the window was not fully accessible, and the rest of the home was secured. The victim was notified of the incident. Nothing appeared to be missing from the residence.
A burglary was reported on Town Center Drive on Sept. 17 between 6:39 p.m. and 6:42 p.m. The associate told the deputy that a male suspect wearing a gray sleeveless shirt, black shorts, white shoes and carrying a black tote back entered the store. The suspect walked to the aisle that contained alcoholic beverages and took four Patron tequila bottles and placed them inside his bag. He continued to place additional alcoholic beverages inside his bag, but the associate was unaware of which products he took and how many were taken. He then left the store with his bag filled with alcoholic beverages. The associate tried to contact the suspect, but he walked past her, and she was unable to physically stop the suspect from leaving. The suspect walked southbound from the entrance, toward the parking lot and entered a black Kia sedan and drove out of view. The deputy reviewed the surveillance camera footage of the incident and saw what the associate described.
