WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Wichita Falls police say an overnight burglary may be connected to several others in the last year.
The latest burglary was around 3:40 a.m., Thursday Apr. 6, 2023 at the Dollar Saver at 711 Central Freeway.
Police said they responded to a burglary alarm within two minutes, but the burglars were gone when they arrived. It is unclear if or why there may have been a delay in the alarm going off.
They say surveillance video shows three suspects as in other store burglaries. The front door was pried open and the suspect’s faces were covered.
Police said a large amount of cash and hundreds of cartons of cigarettes were taken, similar to about a half dozen burglaries in the last year.
On February 28, another Dollar Saver was burglarized at 3:15 a.m. Police say three people wearing gloves, masks and dark clothing forced the front door and took 190 cartons of cigarettes, valued at $11,400, as well as $500 cash.
