Sheriff’s deputies were attempting to sort out the details of a possible burglary in the 15400 block of Richwood Drive on Monday, July 1.
The Sheriff’s Office received a report that there were two male subjects who entered a home for sale in the neighborhood after looking through the windows.
Deputies arrived on the scene and located one of the subjects. He claimed he was assisting someone that was moving from the residence.

Meanwhile, the scene was processed by crime technicians in the event this was indeed a burglary, and identification of both subjects was obtained.
