Burglary of Rodeo Fairgrounds solved

This tractor and trailer were stolen from the fairgrounds and the stolen trailer used to take the tractor.

CROSBY – The Crosby Fair & Rodeo has been the victim of many burglaries over the last two decades and the board members decided to put new technology together and team with Precinct 3 Constable Sherman Eagleton’s Department to stop this expensive drain on a charity that bestows college funds to local high school students.

Last Oct. 7 they were hit again but measures were in place to identify the perpetrators and the Constable’s Deputies wee able to find the stolen goods by Oct. 9. Later when a suspect called to get his truck back from impound, he was invited to come get the truck and upon arrival and a few questions later, placed under arrest.

The name of the perpetrator has not been released by the department but his photograph has. It seems he had placed a stolen vehicle and several stolen items at his father’s house and when found the father told deputies who had placed those items there.

Stolen from the Crosby Fair & Rodeo Fairgrounds were a zero turn grass mower, a John Deere Tractor, tractor equipment and a trailer. They were all found in proximity to a stolen a commercial truck.
