Home burglaries in Pettus.
January 30, 2010
Bee County Sheriff’s Office deputies are asking residents of the Pettus community to report any suspicious people, vehicles or activity in an effort to stop a recent spate of burglaries.
Deputy Sgt. Steve Martin said this week that at least six homes have been burglarized during the daylight hours in recent weeks.
The most recent burglary was reported to deputies on Wednesday, Martin said.
The burglar or burglars are checking to see if anybody is home and if not, enter by breaking a window or kicking in a door, Martin reported.
Once inside, the thieves are stealing jewelry, electronics, anything of value that can be taken quickly and without being noticed by neighbors, Martin said.
“We do have some leads,” Martin added. But deputies would like to catch someone in the act, he said.
“Look out for suspicious people, suspicious activity, suspicious vehicles,” the investigator urged.
“Keep an eye on your neighbor’s property, just like you’d hope they’d keep an eye on yours,” Martin said. “It may be nothing but we won’t know unless we check it out.”
Martin said deputies can be on the scene within minutes after the sheriff’s office receives a call.
Crime Stoppers seeks info on two unsolved murders
January 30, 2010
Bee County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information that could lead to an arrest of suspects involved in two unsolved murders that took place in Beeville:
1) The Police have an outstanding arrest warrant for Jose Angel Villa in the first case for a murder that took place on Jan. 10, 1981, at the former Zebra Lounge at 805 W. Corpus Christi St. That night José Angel Villa allegedly shot José Luis Garcia and killed him.
Beeville Police Department Chief Joe Treviño said Villa would be 53 years old now. He has been on the run for almost 30 years, the chief said, but he still has family in Beeville and he may return occasionally. Villa is believed to spend time in either Texas, Mexico or both.
2) The Police have no suspects in the second murder case. That investigation stems from an incident that took place on Aug. 6, 2005, at a home at 901 E. Anderson St.
According to witnesses in the home at the time, two masked men entered the residence with guns drawn. As one man held his firearm on people,
the other intruder walked to a bedroom at the back of the house and shot Larry Lee Anzaldua to death. The men then fled the scene. (There is more information about this crime in another story below)
