CHECK YOUR LOCKS: Burglary spree sparks an alert to Henderson community

News

12 burglaries in less than a month may not sound concerning, but when you factor in that it’s Henderson, Texas it raises eyebrows.

According to Lt. James Dukes, it’s a higher than usual amount.

“We have had a dozen vehicle break-ins. Considering it’s only the 20th and we’ve got two weeks left, that’s concerning. On a busy month we may see 6 or 7.”

Out of those 12, 2 have been the Perez family.

They live on Southview Drive and have for the last year and a half.

“We thought it was a good neighborhood with so many police officers living here and jailers,” said Lorena Perez.

On Wednesday, their newly purchased home security cameras captured the thieves in the act, but unfortunately just a few days before the buy, their cars were broken into.

“We immediately went that next day and got those cameras, but clearly that didn’t stop them from attempting to do it again,” said Perez.

The Police Department shared Perez’ video on its facebook page
