BEEVILLE – Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers is offering a reward starting at $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest in a recent burglary in Live Oak County.

The offer is good for the next 20 days.

According to Crime Stoppers law enforcement coordinator, Deputy Lt. John Davis of the Bee County Sheriff’s Office, the burglary took place on County Road 416 near Whitsett on April 17.

The owners of the home were out of town at the time of the incident.

Davis said property worth more than $36,000 was hauled away during the burglary.

The stolen items included a $2,450 Sako, .270-caliber, bolt action rifle with a Leopold scope.

Davis said the rifle should be easy to spot because it had a black, composite stock and a fluted, stainless steel barrel.

Other items taken from the residence included a Blue, gas-powered E-ZGO golf cart, a Winchester 700 .270-caliber bolt action rifle, a Browning 12-gauge shotgun, a Remington Nylon 66 semi auto .22-caliber rifle, a Taurus Judge revolver and a number of other rifles.

The thieves also took a Zeiss range finder, a 50-inch Samsung television, several mounted trophy deer heads and a hog scull mount, a bobcat mount, silver coins and some items of jewelry.

Davis said some of the stolen items could end up being sold almost anywhere in this area.

Anyone who has information that could lead to an arrest should contract the organization at 362-0206 or call long distance to (877) 362-0206. Internet users may contact the organization by email at coastalbendcrimestoppers.com.

Davis said witnesses providing information always remain anonymous. The organization makes it possible for the person providing information to collect the cash reward without ever having to be identified.

Investigating officers do not even know the identity of the person providing the tip.

However, the information must result in an arrest in the case before a reward is paid.
