Burglars Hit Convenience Stores
Three convenience stores were burglarized early Monday.

The Brock Junction convenience store, located in the 7400 block of West Interstate 20, was also burglarized. Sheriff’s investigators believe the suspects forcefully entered the store around 5:20 a.m., just hours after the Aledo store was reported.
Sheriff’s investigators believe the burglaries are related, saying there were similarities.

Brock store personnel also reported cigarettes were also taken during the burglary.
Burglars shattered the side glass on side of the building to gain entry to the Brock store.

Surveillance cameras caught the suspect vehicle on camera.
Sheriff’s investigators described the car as a small compact silver vehicle used in both burglaries. At least three black males wearing hoods were seen on the tape. All suspects, ranging from 5-feet-8-inches to 6-feet tall, were wearing dark clothing.
Sheriff’s Deputies are working closely with Weatherford Police detectives, saying the same similarities were revealed in the burglary of the Shell station at Clear Lake Drive and I-20, also early this morning.
