In the morning hours of March 8, about 9:15 a.m., sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglary call at the Discount Lube and Tire in the 8400 block of Homeward Way near the intersection of New Territory Boulevard and the Grand Parkway/Texas 99.
According to Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel, the store manager told the deputies that at least two people entered the business and stole property about 11:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 7. He was able to provide film of the culprits as they took a flat screen television from the business. Haenel said the crooks gained entry by shattering the glass front door of the business.
Based on the surveillance video the suspects appear to be black males of medium height and weight; one wearing a beanie cap and goatee, while the other is wearing a hooded jacket and has a beard.
Information which leads to the apprehension and filing of charges on the suspects involved could earn a reward of up to $5,000.
