TYLER, TX - On Tuesday, July 29, 2014, Smith County Sheriff’s Office detectives received information from a Smith County resident regarding over $21,000 worth of tools and wires which had been taken when his business was burglarized on July 18 in Flint. He was told that it was a former employee who had stolen his property and that some of that property could now be found in the Pinecrest mobile home park on FM 2868 in Flint.

That same day, another Smith County resident contacted Smith County Sheriff’s Office detectives advising she also had information that her stolen property was located in the Pinecrest mobile home park. This victim’s home had been burglarized on Wednesday, July 23, and a John Deere riding lawnmower had been stolen.

After discovering that the individual was wanted for parole violation, multiple Smith County Sheriff’s Office Detectives as well as Sheriff’s Office K-9 Officers went to the residence to assist with the warrant execution. The suspect came outside and was arrested without incident.
