Seeking public’s help identifying burglary suspects

The Arlington Police Department is looking for two suspects wanted for breaking into an Arlington City Library after hours and stealing computer tablets. On Thursday, November 22, 2012, two young men, possibly teenagers, broke into the library at 1624 New York Avenue at around 4 a.m. and took computer tablets that had been locked in a closet at the facility.

Attached are photos taken from surveillance footage of the two suspects inside the library computer lab. Both suspects are described as young men, who appear to be between 16- and 19-years-old, weighing between 130-155 pounds. On the day of the incident, one suspect had braces and dark-framed glasses. He was wearing a black cap with “Astros” on the front, a red t-shirt and a black jacket with pin stripes on the torso area, white sleeves and white writing on the front. The second suspect was wearing a turquoise blue hoodie, a black and red “Bulls” baseball cap, long black shorts and grey/blue high top tennis shoes.

If you recognize the suspects pictured here, please contact Arlington Police Detective Paul Belauskas at 817 459-5811 or contact Crime Stoppers at 817 469-TIPS (8477). Tipsters may remain anonymous and are eligible for a reward up to $1,000.

4/1/2013 Two suspects identified in library burglary, arrested
Two tips that came in shortly after the Arlington Police Department pushed out photos of suspects in an Arlington library burglary led detectives to identify two possible suspects – an adult and juvenile. The adult, later identified as Erasmo Anguiano, 18 of Arlington, has been arrested and is now being held in the Lavaca County Jail. A warrant was issued for Anguiano in January and he was arrested Sunday, March 31, 201 in Lavaca County when he was stopped by Hallettsville Police while in a stolen vehicle.

The juvenile, who is 15-years-old and is not being identified because of his age, lives in Houston and was in town visiting his cousin at the time of the burglary. He also faces possible criminal charges in this offense.
