9/8/2014 - Flare Gun Arson
Click to Enlarge

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin needs your help identifying the person responsible for two arson incidents.

 

Around the end of July, someone shot a flare into a house on Idylwood Drive in Lufkin.  The homeowner was readying the house for sale and it was vacant when the suspect fired a flare through a window.  The flare traveled through a front window, across the room, and landed on the wood frame of a rear window.  Both windows were damaged but the fire did not spread beyond the frame of the rear window.

 

Just before midnight July 21, a home on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was attacked in the same manner.  This time, the house was occupied and when the suspect fired a flare through a window they set fire to a couch.  The residents, who were sleeping at the time, woke to the smell of the couch burning.  They dragged the couch outside and extinguished the fire before more damage or injuries occurred.

 

Below, you can view photos of the damage.

 

If you can identify the suspect, or provide information concerning a similar incident or the theft of a flare gun, call Crime Stoppers of Lufkin at (936) 639-TIPS or click the “Solve this Crime” link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest related to these crimes.

9/1/2014 - Vehicle Burglars
Click to Enlarge

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying three vehicle burglars.

 

2:30 AM Tuesday, August 19, three suspects burglarized a vehicle parked outside a residence on Copeland Drive in Lufkin.  The vehicle was unlocked so the suspects did not have to force entry to gain access to a purse and other valuables.

 

Initially, the suspects took the purse along with prescription medications, cigarettes, and a camera but one of the suspects returned the purse to the vehicle after removing cash and a gift card.

 

A camera outside the residence captured video of the crime but the low-light image makes it difficult to make out the suspects’ features.  The suspects all appear to be male.  One has a thin-build and tattoos on his right upper arm, and he wore a wide-brim hat and tucked his pant legs into his boots.  Another is overweight and wore shorts, tennis shoes, and baseball cap.  The final suspect wore a long-sleeve shirt or jacket, possibly a hoodie.

 

Below, you can view portions of the video.

 

If you can identify any of the suspects, or provide information concerning the location of the stolen property, call Crime Stoppers of Lufkin at (936) 639-TIPS or click the “Solve this Crime” link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest related to this crime.

 

Other vehicle burglaries occurred in the same area of town and around the same time as the burglary described here.  Some vehicles were left unlocked and others had their windows broken but the crimes might have been prevented by removing the valuables from the vehicles AND locking the vehicle’s doors.  Making your vehicle, your home, and yourself a harder target for criminals can reduce your likelihood of being a victim.

Click to Enlarge

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying two suspects responsible for three burglaries, each occurring in a different county.

 

At 4:30 AM Tuesday, August 12, two suspects burglarized a Radio Shack in Livingston.  They shattered a glass door at the front of the store, cut a lock from a storage locker, and stole iPhones and Beats headphones.

 

An hour later, the same suspects broke into Mobile Destination on South First Street in Lufkin.  They broke a glass door and stole merchandise; this time, Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets.

 

Just before 4:00 AM eight days later, the same suspects used the same tactics to burglarize a Radio Shack in Crockett.  They broke a glass door, forced open a storage locker, and stole approximately thirty mobile telephones.

 

In each case, the suspects spent less than two minutes inside the buildings but cost the businesses thousands of dollars.  Security camera videos show that the suspects are black males, one with either short-cut hair or a shaved head, and the other with shoulder-length dreadlock-style hair.  Witnesses to one burglary described the suspects’ vehicle as a dark colored, four-door car, possible a black BMW with paper license plates.

 

If you can identify either of the suspects, or provide information concerning these crimes or the location of the stolen property, call Crime Stoppers of Lufkin at (936) 639-TIPS or click the “Solve this Crime” link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest related to these crimes.

Crime Stoppers wants your help identifying the driver in a hit and run accident that left a Lufkin teen hospitalized.

 

Shortly after 2:00 AM Sunday, July 13, an unidentified driver ran his vehicle into a seventeen-year-old on a bicycle.

 

The victim and two friends were riding their bicycles southbound on South Timberland Drive in Lufkin when a truck struck the victim from behind.  The impact threw the victim onto the asphalt and the truck traveled a short distance pushing the victim’s bicycle.  The witnesses watched as their friend tumbled along the roadway and the truck slowed down briefly before continuing south on Timberland Drive.  One witness hit the passenger window of the truck in an attempt to get the driver to stop but the truck turned left onto East Denman Avenue and then disappeared from sight; it was last seen on Denman Avenue headed toward South First Street.

 

The witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a white-in-color Toyota truck, possibly a four-door, and described the driver and front seat passenger as Hispanic males.  They stated that the passenger appeared to have been asleep at the time of the crash.

 

At the scene of the crash, the investigating police officers found white paint chips, a Toyota front grill emblem, and the truck’s passenger side headlamp assembly.  Based upon the debris and witness statements, the officers believe that the suspect vehicle is a 2003 to 2004 year model Toyota Tundra, white-in-color.

Numerous tipsters identified the same persons as the suspects in this case and investigators are working to verify the information and file appropriate charges.


Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying several male suspects who acted together to steal a cash deposit from a convenience store.

 

At approximately 3:00 AM June 30, 2014, four males arrived at a convenience store on West Frank Avenue in Lufkin.  All four were passengers in a gold or light brown colored SUV.  One of them, while shopping in the store, noticed that an employee had mistakenly left a cash deposit sitting on top of a cash register.

 

After discussing his discovery with one conspirator, he enlisted the assistance of another and then worked to distract the employees while his partner pocketed the money and returned to their vehicle.

 

All of the suspects are black males.  The two shown here, in an image taken from the store’s security camera video, were directly involved in the theft and the other two appear, based upon the video, to have known about the theft but were waiting in the vehicle when it occurred.

 

The suspect wearing a white tank top and black shorts pulled low enough to expose his blue underpants was the first to see the deposit and later distracted the employees by asking about food in the deli area.  The suspect wearing the dark blue or black t-shirt and black, oversize shorts entered the store, went directly to the cash register, and stole the money.

The evening of Saturday, June 07, 2014, a Lufkin resident reported that a package delivered to their residence, located in the 100 block of Moss Drive, had been stolen.  The victim stated that US Postal Service package tracking information indicated car radio equipment had been delivered to the residence the previous date but the victim did not find the package. 

 

A camera mounted outside the residence captured video of a white male walking onto the porch of the residence at approximately 7:30 PM the previous night.  The suspect was out of range of the camera for just over a minute but when he walks away from the residence he is carrying a package that, according to the victim, contained the car radio equipment.

 

According to the video, the suspect is a tall, thin-build white male.  If the color of the video is accurate, the suspect wore a grey t-shirt with text and a logo on its front, red pants, a red and white baseball cap, and possibly work-style boots.  Although covered by the cap, his hair color appears to be red or light brown.
