Deputies seek Cleburne mail theft suspect

State most wanted list marks 20th anniversary

 

Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies are seeking information on a woman suspected of mail theft.

Deputies responded at 4 p.m. Tuesday to the 700 block of County Road 805A, just south of the U.S. 67 bypass between Old Betsy Road in Keene and North Main Street in Cleburne.

The victim said he saw a late ’90s model Honda Accord pull up to his mailbox and remove mail between 2-2:30 p.m. The Honda is black with plastic on the window, the victim said, and driven by a white female possibly in her late 20s. 

The victim said he believes he had previously seen the car in the area. Anyone with information is urged to call JCSO at 817-556-6058.

 

Happy anniversary

March 9 marked the 20th anniversary of the Texas Department of Public Safety’s 10 Most Wanted Program. 

“Since its inception, the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program has proven to be a proactive and vital effort between state, local and federal law enforcement agencies to protect Texas communities,” DPS Director Steven McCraw said in a DPS release. “Thanks to the vigilant work of law enforcement agencies and the public we’ve been able to get some of the state’s most dangerous offenders off the streets over the last two decades.”

The program identifies, selects and adds to the list fugitives and wanted sex offenders who pose a significant threat to public safety. Individuals providing information leading to the arrest of anyone on the list may remain anonymous and can earn a cash reward in the amount designated for each criminal.

“The success of [the program] is proof that public involvement in reporting fugitive criminals is key to building safer communities,” Gov. Rick Perry said. “I applaud thousands of Texans who have contracted CrimeStoppers through the years to report suspected fugitives and urge all Texans to remain vigilant and do their part to help keep these offenders off our streets.”
