On Sunday afternoon, the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office received a burglary in progress call in the southwest part of Lamar County where a relative of a homeowner interrupted a burglary by two females in a white passenger vehicle.
Lamar County Sheriff Scott Cass said the female suspects were confronted in the driveway leaving the residence and then fled when the relative of the homeowner started following the suspects while calling the sheriff’s office.
“Deputies arrived in the area but lost the suspects somewhere in the southeast part of Lamar County,” Cass said. “It was later learned from Delta County Sheriff’s Office that matching suspects and car description were seen in the area of two residences on Sunday in Delta County that had been burglarized.”
On Tuesday, detectives with the sheriff’s office located the suspect vehicle in the Dike community in Hopkins County, Texas. Subsequently, detectives with the Lamar, Delta, and Hopkins County Sheriff’s Offices located two females matching the description given by complainants along with a white vehicle matching the description of the vehicle seen at the burglary in Lamar County.
Further, a search warrant was gained by Lamar County Sheriff Detectives for the residence where numerous stolen property items were recovered from the burglary in Lamar County and the two burglaries from Delta County. The suspects: Amber Michelle Morgan from Hopkins County and Heidi Elizabeth Wosotowsky from the San Antonio area were arrested on scene by Hopkins County Detectives on unrelated charges.
Wosotowsky was arrested on an outstanding Parole Warrant and Morgan for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and Possession of a controlled substance between 4-200grams.
Warrants were obtained by Lamar County Sheriff Detectives from the Lamar County Attorney’s Office for Burglary of Habitation on each suspect. Both suspects remain in custody at the Hopkin’s County Jail at this time.
“I appreciate the information gained from the witness in this case that aided the investigation tremendously in locating these suspects,” Cass said. “Also, I want to commend the multiple agencies involved that worked together to solve these burglaries. The good working relationships among the Detectives resulted in these suspects being apprehended quickly and the recovery of the property stolen from the complainants.”
