Sgt. DeFee says there's no evidence to indicate the burglaries were an inside job, but he wouldn't elaborate on how investigators believe the suspects knew to look for a safe inside each home. Last week's home invasion, in Crestwood near Memorial Park, gave authorities their biggest break so far — images from a security camera.
"It shows the faces of all five members of the crew with their ski masks pulled up. We encourage people that might know these persons to contact us and let us know where we might find them."
Sgt. DeFee says authorities are looking for connections between the Houston burglaries, and another series of robberies in Fort Bend County. A pin map of the houses the Clean-Up Crew hit along with images of the burglars can be found on our website — kuhf.org.
