Law enforcement officials told the Wharton Journal-Spectator they are aware of vehicle break-ins in the EB area and are investigating several incidents.
On Tuesday, Aug. 25, Wharton County Sheriff Shannon Srubar said his detectives have been on the case and there are several people of interest.
Constable John Szymanski, with WC Precinct 2, said there has been an increase in burglary of motor vehicles.
“It’s almost totally due to vehicles being left unlocked with valuables inside,” Szymanski said. “To my knowledge, no locked vehicles were broken into. WCSO is heading up the investigation and we’re assisting in any way possible.”
Another local official who was not named, said several guns have been stolen from the EB area, raising the concerns of law enforcement.
