WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A Wichita Falls man and woman are jailed as police investigate numerous reports of burglaries and thefts off of porches. Both suspects have lengthy records.
Joellen Wolfe is charged with two counts of burglary and three counts of theft. Elis Ramos is charged with burglary and drug possession.
