COVID-conscious crooks break into local business

RIESEL, Texas (KWTX) – Local deputies are looking for a pair of face-mask wearing criminals caught-on-camera stealing from a business on the McLennan/Falls County line.

The duo broke into Highway Equipment Sales on HWY 6 in Riesel around 1:50 a.m. Monday.

They got away with a bumper pull trailer.

The owners say the trailer, a 2011 Utility Texas Pride, has sliding ramps with a metal box welded to the tongue.

Surveillance shows the thieves leaving South toward Marlin in a light-colored Ford F-250 with a large dent on its rear passenger side.

Anyone who recognizes the suspects or their truck is asked to contact the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office at (254) 757-5095.
