Centerton PD Offers Reward For Information About Aggravated Burglary
CENTERTON (KFSM) — The Centerton Police Department announced Thursday (April 7) it is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of two suspects wanted in connection to an aggravated burglary.
The reward is being offered through the police department by two separate third parties.
Police said the homeowner, Leigh Parker, was shot with her own gun during the burglary after she got into a struggle over the firearm with the suspects. Parker was shot in the abdomen and leg, but is expected to be okay, according to police.
Police received the call about the burglary at 1220 Torbay Trace around 8 a.m. Tuesday. They said Parker called 911 while she was hiding in a closet.
Investigators are also looking to speak to a bicyclist who was riding his road bike around the Kennisington Hills Subdivision the morning of the burglary. The cyclist was doing laps in the subdivision and was wearing a bright yellow shirt.
Police said the intruders are described as two white males in their late teens or early twenties. One was wearing a red bandana on his face with white shoes and blue jeans, the other was skinny with a sunken face and dark clothing. The second man was described to be a “drug user,” the release states.
If you have any information regarding the intruders call the Centerton Police Department at (479) 273-5532.
