Two teenaged boys are in custody, accused of burglarizing two homes and trashing one which belongs to a World War II veteran. NEWS 92 FM’s Norm Uhl has the story.
Police say 93-year-old Elbert Wood came home from a doctor’s appointment Monday morning and found his house had been ransacked, jewelry stolen, and the walls, windows and furniture covered in spray-painted graffiti.
A short time later, police spotted two teenagers walking down the street with some of the same colors of paint on them.
Investigators say the 13 and 16 year olds had also burglarized a second home just a few blocks away in northwest Houston.
In that case, the homeowner, Wilton Williams, walked in on the boys in the middle of their crime. One of the boys allegedly turned Williams’ own shotgun on him, but it apparently jammed when the boy tried to fire.
Officers say they were able to recover some but not all of the items stolen from the two homes.
