An exclusive to FOX 2, officers respond to recent rash of thefts at a Mission junkyard. One person was taken into custody. FOX 2 Reporter Tom Rader was at the scene and has more.
They’re a common sight around the valley, used car part lots but authorities are investigating one in particular that was the victim of theft.
FOX 2 News cameras exclusively on the scene as numerous Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Deputies surrounded the entrance of a used car part lot on 107 between Bentsen and La Homa late yesterday afternoon and combed the inside of the lot for evidence.
They appeared to take one male into custody. It is a fresh investigation and the sheriff’s office was not able to comment. But we did contact the owner of the facility and he is currently in Washington State. We also contacted his son who is watching the place in his father’s absence and he informed us that Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating theft of both vehicles and vehicle parts.
And we’ll of course keep you up to date as further details become available regarding this theft investigation.
