Investigation into auto burglaries results in arrest

PALESTINE, March 14, 2013— The Palestine Police Department has been working on solving a series of auto burglaries that have taken place over the past two months.  On March 4, Palestine Police arrested Edward Scott, Jr. for his involvement in a series of burglaries that took place several weeks ago.  Police were able to obtain a warrant for Scott’s arrest after reviewing all of the evidence from the case.

Edward Scott, Jr. was taken to the Anderson County Jail where he was booked in on the charge of Burglary of a Vehicle. Mr. Scott was being held on a $25,000 bond. The investigation into Mr. Scott’s activities and his possible involvement into other burglaries are still under investigation. The possibility of other charges does exist.   

Again the Police are asking that citizens lock their cars and make sure all of their valuables are taken inside or locked in the vehicle and out of sight. A little prevention can go a long way.

The Palestine Police Department also has two trained Crime Prevention Officers. These officers will come to your home or business and complete an inspection of your property. They will give you a report on how you can improve your safety and security. This may also get you a discount on your homeowner’s insurance policy. For more information about this program please call Detective David Kassaw at 903-731-8482.

The Palestine Police are also asking that if anyone has information concerning the recent burglaries or any other crime to please call the Palestine Police Department at 903-729-2254 or the local Crime Stoppers at 903-729-8477
