Parker County Sheriff’s Investigators arrested the suspect of several weekend burglaries reported in the Springtown area last weekend.

Four vehicles and a storage building located on Isabella Lane were burglarized when the suspect entered the building and vehicles, taking numerous valuables including fishing poles and tackle, jewelry, a backpack, sunglasses, flashlights, clothing, phone chargers, credit/debit cards, tax return paperwork, cash and other personal items.

The suspect was captured on home surveillance camera attempting to burglarize a car.

The Sheriff’s Office distributed a Crime of the Week press release with a photo and description of the suspect. Within 24-hours the Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip identifying the suspect as Samuel Ibarra, 18, of Springtown.

Sheriff’s investigators located the suspect and interviewed him. Ibarra fully cooperated with investigators and implicated himself in each of the burglaries. Ibarra was arrested earlier this week on three Class A Misdemeanor charges for burglary of a vehicle and one State Jail Felony charge of burglary of a building. The case has been filed with the Parker County District and Attorney’s Office for consideration of prosecution.

Ibarra’s bond was set at $11,000.

All of the vehicle owners reported they parked their cars at their residences and left them unlocked overnight.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said most break-ins can be prevented if people will simply remove their valuables and lock their vehicles.

Sheriff Fowler also said the Crime Stoppers program has helped solve many cases.

“We encourage our citizens to contact Crime Stoppers with tips on any crime,” Fowler said. “Each year, hundreds of Texas cases would go unsolved without Crime Stoppers tips assisting law enforcement agencies in solving criminal cases.”


You may remain anonymous when calling the Parker County Crime Stoppers Hotline at (817) 599-5555. Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of individual(s) involved in crimes.
