On January 10th, an email was sent to homeowners regarding the burglary of the Court residence, which stated:
This is part of a string of home burglaries that have hit Buffalo Creek, Stoneleigh, and now our neighborhood. There are 3 vehicles that have been linked to these burglaries:
- Gold minivan, paper plates on rear (no front plate), with passenger side damage
- Gold Buick, older model (big) Le Sabre, metal plate but unknown number
- Black or blue Nissan Maxima or Altima, metal plate but unknown number
- 3 black males were observed running from the back of the house and the two vehicles (gold minivan and gold Buick in yesterday’s incident) were driven by black males, for a total of 5 in all.
At the time the investigating officer felt like they had a solid lead on a suspect. To our knowledge, regrettably, no arrests have been made.
Most of these burglaries are during the day when homes are likely vacant. A car parked in the driveway may be a good deterrent.
The Sheriff’s Department asks that non-emergency calls, like the sighting of the vehicles above, be reported to their non-emergency line, 972-204-7001. If you witness suspicious or illegal activity, please dial 9-1-1. (All calls go to the same dispatcher, but they have different handling protocol.)
