One Arrested After Burglarizing Four Stores

A man is behind bars after Wichita Falls police say he pulled off four burglaries by using a unique method to get inside the buildings.

Eric Lee Russell, 35, is accused of burglarizing the Hibiscus Café, Caribbean Tan, Sarge’s Surplus and The Collector’s Den on March 1. All four businesses are located in the same shopping strip located at the 1600 block of Pearlie Drive.

According to police, Russell gained entry by removing the electric meters and went through a wall vent in the café and then removed ceiling tiles to get inside the other stores.

Russell’s girlfriend pawned some of the stolen items which led to his arrest.

He is facing four counts of burglary of a building and also had a bench warrant for criminal mischief.

Russell’s bond has been set at $60,000.
