Liberty County property owner joins Crime Stoppers in offering reward for theft

A Liberty County property owner whose farm building was burglarized between Saturday, Nov. 24, and Monday, Nov. 26, is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the persons involved.

That reward could be increased if the tip is submitted through the Multi-County Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-800-392-STOP, according to Capt. Ken DeFoor, spokesperson for the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office.

Thieves reportedly entered the property by cutting off a lock on a cattle guard gate on a farm building on CR 2285 in Tarkington. They then cut through the metal siding of the building to gain entry.

“The property owners reported that among the many items stolen were a Miller Bobcat welding machine mounted on a custom-made black colored trailer with diamond plating on the sides, two Power Mate brand generators with one being a 3500-watt still in the box and a used 4500-watt generator, three large air compressors, a Stihl brand chain saw and Stihl weed eater, as well as many power tools and other miscellaneous items,” DeFoor said.

All tips submitted through Multi-County Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous.
