August 29, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

August 24, 2015 by Rosealee Hoffman

From the Parker County Sheriff's Department:

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler wants to warn the public against suspicious persons and would-be criminals.

On Friday, Aug. 21, 2015, an-86-year-old man and his 78-year-old wife reported an unknown man and woman approached their residence the previous week claiming to be neighbors, and seeking to view their garden located in the 3000 block of East Bankhead Highway.

The victims allowed the couple to enter the backyard, but noticed a few moments later, the male had disappeared.

The man was found inside the couple’s home, uninvited. The victim believes the couple used a diversionary tactic to gain entrance to their residence.
