Palestine man arrested for Burglary of Building; Police suspect involvement in others

PALESTINE, September 30, 2013— The Palestine Police Department have arrested 45 year-old Timothy Wayne Glover of Dallas, for Burglary of a Building. Police were in route to an unrelated call when they saw a suspicious car at a local business. The car in question was white in color. Police had information that an older white car had been seen in the area where a burglary had taken place the night before.

Sgt. Gabriel Green spotted the man behind the building and requested that Sgt. Jeremy Jenkins check out the car and the person behind the building.  Sgt. Jenkins went to the location where he also spotted a white male. Sgt. Green is a veteran with the department and his years of experience paid off in this situation.

The subject, later identified as Glover, ran from the area on foot and was eventually captured by police. Glover attempted to get back to his vehicle but his escape was cut off by Cpl. Brian Lintner. Glover was taken into custody by Sgt. Jenkins.

Police first saw Glover near the back of the Donut Palace located in the 100 block of Crockett Road. Police later located marks of the back door indicating that someone was trying to force the door open.

Based on information and evidence obtained during the arrest, police now believe that Glover may be responsible for a string of burglaries in Palestine.  Glover was booked in the Anderson County Jail for Burglary of a Building, a State Jail Felony which carries a sentence of up to two years in a State Jail Facility. Glover was also charged with Evading Arrest and Detention which is a misdemeanor. Glover could be sentenced up to one year in jail for the Evading charge.

Justice of the Peace James Westley set bonds totaling $200,000 for the Burglary and Evading charges.    

The investigation is continuing at this time. Police will be sending evidence collected to the DPS Crime Lab for analysis.
