EL PASO, TEXAS – Refrigeration units and major appliances have been the target of a series of burglaries of new homes. Investigators from the El Paso Police Department are asking for the public’s assistance in finding those responsible through Crime Stoppers. These crimes have been taking place since April and have been seen in finished or nearly finished homes in Northeast, West and East El Paso. The suspects are believed to park a truck or van inside the garage of these homes and begin to load the vehicle with the appliances. In some cases other building materials have been taken. The incidents are believed to be happening between the late afternoon hours and early morning hours. Several of the burglaries have taken place during weekends. The suspects involved may appear to be working on the construction site and investigators ask the community to report any suspicious activity at these sites. Investigators know that someone in the community knows who these burglars are and are asking your help in solving these cases.
