Crime Stoppers reward offered in Azle store burglary case

Man, woman sought by authorities

AZLE – The Parker County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division is investigating a burglary of A to Z Grocery convenience store in Azle.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a call just before 2 a.m. Tuesday in the 6000 block of Grace Lane near FM Road 730.

Deputies discovered the suspects gained entry into the business after hours by apparently using chains and wrapping them around the front glass doors, then attaching them to a red semi-truck cab to pull them away from the building, forcing the doors open and damaging them.

Store employees arrived on scene and reported an undetermined amount of lottery tickets and cigarettes were stolen along with a display of glass pipes.

Sheriff’s investigators were able to obtain a description of a vehicle used in the commission of the burglary.

Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Arnett said the store surveillance cameras were able to capture a male and female suspect backing the truck cab to the front of the building, securing chains from the truck to the front door and pulling forward, then entering the store and taking several items.

The male suspect is described as between 30 and 40 years of age, standing about 6 feet tall and weighing approximately 185 pounds. The white female suspect is also believed to be between 30 and 40 years old, standing approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds.

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