A neighbor’s call to 9-1-1 resulted in the arrest of a burglary suspect Saturday evening.
On January 31, 2015 at 9:50 p.m., a resident in the 1100 block of South Lake Drive called to report that someone had broken a window and had gone into his neighbor’s home.
While responding to the call, Texarkana, Texas Police Department Officer Kody Edwards noticed a man matching the suspect’s description walking away from the area carrying a DVD player and a satellite receiver. An initial investigation confirmed that the items had been stolen from the home.
