Thieves use kids

Couple sends children into homes to help steal
Ennis police have issued a warning to all residents to beware of a family of thieves who are using their children to get inside people’s homes and steal items ranging from jewelry and money to medication.
Det. Sgt. Dorinda Clark said authorities have received two complaints since Wednesday about a group getting inside homes by telling the owners a story to distract them while items are stolen.
The first complainant told police a white female with brown hair knocked on his door and said her Hispanic pre-teen children, a boy and girl, needed to use the restroom. The complainant said the woman, approximately five-feet, seven-inches tall, stayed with the him while the children were in his bedroom where the bathroom was located. After they left the complainant noticed money was missing.
It was also reported the family was seen in a red pickup truck, where a Hispanic male waited for the woman and children.
According to Clark, the second complainant said a male subject with two children said he used to live in the neighborhood and supposedly knew the complainant’s daughter. The complainant told authorities while the family was inside the home the children were unruly and ran around the house at will. The complainant noticed some stolen items after the family had gone.
“They’re lucky they didn’t get hurt,” Clark said of the homeowners.
If anyone has information that could be helpful to solving these incidents, call Det. Sgt. Dorinda Clark at 972-875-4462.
