POLICE BLOTTER: Four bikes stolen from property of burned home

Apparently someone decided the devastation that hit the six-member Trevino family the morning of Jan. 9 wasn’t enough.

The two-story frame home the family lived in at 510 N. Boundary St. was destroyed by fire with everything inside the residence belonging to the two parents and four children either burned or ruined.

Not inside the house were four bicycles, left in the yard, that were reportedly taken from the property sometime between the day of the fire and last Saturday.

Theft arrest

AZLE – About 2 p.m. Wednesday, Parker County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of Sands Lane where contact was made with a man who said a person removed three hubcaps and a pair of aluminum crutches from his front yard. Allen Loyd Plumlee, 25, of Springtown, was arrested for theft of material and booked into the Parker County Jail without incident. He was released after posting $7,500 bond, according to the PCSO.

Pot arrest

MILLSAP – On Wednesday at approximately 1:35 p.m., PCSO deputies conducted a traffic stop in the 100 block of Brazos Rock Road. Deputies identified a passenger in the vehicle as Shiela Ellis, 43, of Millsap. After deputies conducted a consent search of the vehicle, a marijuana cigarette weighing 1 gram was allegedly found. Ellis claimed ownership of the pot and was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana less than 2 ounces. She was booked in at the Parker County Jail and later released after posting $750 bond.

Missing trailer

On Tuesday a PCSO deputy spoke with a complainant in reference to an alleged theft of a semi-trailer belonging to her employer. The complainant is employed by a trucking company located on Ranger Highway. The suspect was issued the trailer several months ago. During an audit of company records, it was found the suspect has not worked in two months. When calls were made to the suspect, it was found he had disconnected his phone. At this point in time, the location of the trailer is unknown.
