Kaufman County Sheriff Deputies Arrest Suspect, Clearing Four Burglaries

 

Andrew Myers, age 23, of Bullard Texas, was taken into custody in connection with four separate burglaries of the Elmo Food Store located on highway 80, in Elmo Texas. On Thursday, July 8, 2010, Kaufman County Deputies developed leads on the suspect that lead them to a neighborhood just off County Road 313. Myers immediately fled on foot, to a nearby vacant field. Kaufman County Sheriff Deputies, aided by Department of Public Safety, Texas Department of Public Safety’s Air One, and Kaufman County Constables from Precinct One and Four were able to quickly apprehend Myers.

The burglaries took place on May 16, 2010, May 26, 2010, June 18, 2010, and July 3, 2010.  In each burglary, various windows and doors were knocked out, and store merchandise was taken. The estimated damage to store windows and door glass totaled $1900.00, and an estimated $2500.00 in merchandise that was taken.

Sheriff David A. Byrnes stated “I commend the actions of the officers from all agencies. Their dedication and investigation skills led to the quick removal of an unscrupulous individual from our county.”

Mr. Myers is being charged with four counts of burglary, and had an outstanding warrant from Smith County. He was transported to the Kaufman County Law Enforcement Center, where bond is pending.
