Canyon police arrest burglary suspect


The Canyon Police Department has arrested a suspect in connection to a series of recent burglaries.

CPD had received six reports of vehicle burglaries, three stolen vehicles, two residential burglaries, a storage shed burglary and two additional thefts of property since late September. Officers investigated these offenses then identified a possible suspect and locations the stolen property might be hidden.

On October 18th, Canyon police officers were able to locate stolen property at a rural Randall County home. Additional stolen property has been located in a vacant field inside Canyon. CPD located the suspect near the vacant field and brought them in for questioning after a brief foot chase.

The property being recovered is being linked to the 14 reported cases as well as multiple unreported cases. CPD has recovered a mini motorcycle, two bicycles and one of the stolen vehicles so far. Police are still looking for a white 2007 Dodge Ram quad cab pickup with Texas Tag DFP3048. Residents who have had any property stolen recently and have not reported it to the police should call the station at (806) 655-5005.

The investigation is continuing with more property expected to be recovered and additional charges being filed.

CPD would like to remind Canyon residents to keep their car doors locked at all times, close garage doors, and lock their property to prevent theft.
