Crawling burglars hit local meat market

By Erica Young - News Producer

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - The Harris County Sheriff's Office is looking for three thieves wanted for burglarizing several La Michoacana meat markets.

The surveillance video from one of the burglaries shows the men crawling across the floor. That robbery happened in the early morning hours of Jan. 27 at the La Michoacana meat market located at 8443 Airline Drive.

Investigators with the HCSO's Burglary and Theft Division said the men tried to beat open the safe inside the business office but were unsuccessful. They were only able to steal lottery tickets.

Investigators believe the same men attempted to break into that same store once before, on Jan. 13, by cutting a hole through the back wall of the business.

They are also believed to be responsible for several other burglaries of La Michoacana meat markets in the city of Houston.

Anyone with information about their identity and/or location is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
