An Electra man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Friday for a series of burglaries around Wichita Falls and Clay County, including one at the home of the father of the burglar’s alleged partner.
Stacy Ann Brackeen, 28, of Colorado and Steven Darrell Depriest, 33, were charged with multiple counts of burglary of a habitation or building.
On Friday, Depriest pleaded guilty and had one count dismissed. His jail roster showed eight counts of burglary plus other charges including assault.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office said the first burglary was reported in December in Arrowhead Ranch Estates where items were taken from two buildings.
The owner told deputies he suspected his daughter because shoe prints looked like those from shoes he knew she wore.
Deputies said one home broken into near Lake Arrowhead was the former home of Brackeen and her parents.
Similar shoe prints were found at another Clay County break-in in January, numerous other burglaries around Lake Arrowhead and one in Wichita Falls were attributed to these suspects.
Items taken include tools, jewelry, saddles, guns and even frozen deer meat.
