HOUSTON – Houston police are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects in connection with a home burglary in southeast Houston last month.
According to the Houston Police Department's Investigative First Responders Unit, on Nov. 16, at 12:15 p.m., a home located in the 10100 block of Elmhurst Street was burglarized.
The rear door of the house was kicked in, and the house was ransacked. A shotgun was stolen and two televisions were moved by the suspects.
Fingerprints have been lifted from the televisions and submitted for analysis.
