Dozens of firearms have been taken in a series of burglaries this month in the northeastern Liberty County community of Tarkington Prairie, officials said.
Two men are being sought for questioning in the 13 break-ins. No one was home during the burglaries, Liberty County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Rex Evans said.
Nearly 100 firearms – from hunting rifles, shotguns, pistols and handguns – have been taken. Evans estimated they have a street value in the thousands of dollars.
The burglars struck between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and spent about a minute inside each home, Evans said.
