Unidentified Suspects Still At Large in Red Oak Burglaries

Red Oak – The Ellis County Sheriff’s Department said it was still looking for four individuals connected to a Red Oak home burglary where they stole credit cards and currency earlier his month. In a prepared statement, officials with the sheriff’s department said the offense took place on Sept. 11th where Ellis County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a burglary in the 200 Block of Bells Chapel Road in Red Oak. Once at the scene, deputies learned that the suspects forced entry into the residence, taking miscellaneous items, including credit cards and a large sum of money. The suspects were seen by a witness fleeing the area in a white Mazda extended cab truck. A picture of the truck was captured and was seen leaving the residence, officials said. Ellis County Criminal Investigators later learned that the suspects which includes one female and three males, proceeded to use the victim’s credit cards at Home Depot, Macy’s and McDonald’s in Mesquite. Furthermore, Ellis County Investigators discovered that the Red Oak Police Department had a similar burglary reported on Sept. 4th and the two cases may be related. In that case investigators learned suspects made entry into a residence and took miscellaneous items along with credit cards. The suspects were captured by store surveillance using the credit cards at Home Depot and McDonald’s in Mesquite. “We believe at the Home Depot the suspects are buying tools with the credit cards, keeping the receipt and then returning the tools to get cash, or they are taking the tools to pawn shops,” said Ellis County Sgt. Joe Fitzgerald. The sheriff’s deputies are asking the public’s help in identifying the suspects. Witnesses, or those that may have seen the individuals in question or those with more information to the case can contact investigator Josh “JP” Key at 972-825-4929.
