Crime Stoppers reward offered in recent thefts

Parker County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division is investigating two theft cases that occurred this past weekend.

The first incident was reported Sunday around 7:30 a.m. in the 100 block of Rainbow Trail, near State Highway 199, in Springtown.

The complainant told deputies sometime overnight someone damaged a meter box and stole about 150 feet of aluminum wiring running electricity to a building on the property. The suspect, or suspects, apparently cut a section of PVC pipe containing the wire in order to gain access to the wiring. The damage and loss of property equaled about $2,000.

The second incident was reported a few hours later, around 10 a.m., in the 100 block of Land of Goshen, also in Springtown. An employee of Patterson UTI reported someone entered the property by cutting a fence and stole several thousand dollars worth of materials from the complex.

The employee stated a 50-pound copper plate was taken, valued at $3,000. The damage to the fence resulted in an additional $1,500 loss.

Anyone with information about these crimes is urged to contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at (817) 594-8845, or the Parker County Crime Stoppers hotline at (817) 599-5555. You may remain anonymous when contacting Crime Stoppers. Parker County Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects involved.
