On Sunday, Officer Caleb Davis with the Orange Police Dept. was dispatched to the Texas Country Store #2, in the 7400 block of IH-10 in reference to a theft. When officer Davis arrived, he made contact with the owner of the store and a witness.

The witness stated that she is aware of a theft that had occurred at the store by three known suspects. Smith said she is unaware of the total number of, or the exact items stolen. The suspect also told police that the suspects have been coming into the store for a couple weeks to talk to her and that they may have been stealing the entire time.

Officer Davis then spoke with the owner of the store, who told police that the witness came to him and informed him of the theft. They reviewed the store’s surveillance system together and observed the suspects removing items.

The store owner told police he will be pulling all the video of the suspects and will provide them to the detective division of OPD when they are ready.

The owner said he wishes to pursue charges when the suspects are located.
