A faulty plan could be one way to describe last Wednesday’s attempted burglary of a local dollar store, where two 18-year-old male suspects allegedly broke in through the storefront.
The perpetrators, according to police, left behind a trail which ultimately led officers to their whereabouts.
On October 3, an unknown caller alerted the San Benito Police Department of a burglary in progress at the Family Dollar store on South Sam Houston. Around 6 a.m., officers responding to the call noticed that a front window of the building had been shattered with a hammer.
Officers searched the inside of the store in pursuit of the persons responsible for breaking and entering, though no one was found inside the business. It also appeared as though nothing was taken from the store.
