Daring Daytime Burglary
On Wednesday, June 29, sometime between noon and three in the afternoon, an unknown number of burglars entered the home of Kevin and Georgia Allen on FM 696 East and stole guns and two iphones. Georgia said, “The door knob and deadbolt from the front door were taken off, leaving a gaping hole in the door. I think they did that because they were thinking about returning.”
The Lee County Sheriff ’s Department was called. Deputy Carvin responded and went to the residence and fingerprinted the door. The investigation is ongoing.
Several other residents have had unknown people in pickup trucks coming on to their property claiming to be there to give a bid on redoing their roofs. Local law enforcement officers encourage area residents to be leery of such people and to lock their houses whether or not they are home.
