The victim of a Nov. 24, 2018, burglary on CR 2285 in Tarkington, is offering an additional $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for this burglary and theft. This new reward will bring the total reward to $2,000 with $1,000 already being offered by the Multi-County Crime Stoppers program, authorities say.

Additionally the thieves took three large air compressors, a Stihl brand chainsaw and a Stihl brand weed eater, other power tools and miscellaneous items,” said Capt. Ken DeFoor, spokesperson for the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call the Multi-County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-392-STOP (7867) or the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office at 936-336-4500.
