Community Center cam catches trio stealing computers

MANOR, Texas (KXAN) — Security cameras catch three thieves stealing computers and donated clothes from the Travis County Community Center in Manor, and police are now asking for the public’s help in finding these people.

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office is looking for at least three people in the Manor burglary that happened Feb. 1 around 10 p.m. at 600 West Carrie Manor Road.

Security cameras took pictures of the suspects as they went through the building. Detectives say the trio stole several things, including computers and donated clothing. Caroyln White is a client of the center and says, “That makes me feel really, really bad because they don’t know the importance of this type of center. It helps so many different people.” White had surgery and is currently out of work, so the center helps her pay her utilities and provides free groceries.

The center provides medical care to those who have no insurance. They also provide services for seniors, young mothers, and children.

“We were all a little bit in shock. We try to do so much for the community, and for someone to do this… it’s sad,” said Center Director Joy Stollings.

The surveillance footage shows three suspects throwing cinder blocks through office windows, stealing computers and a pink shirt, and then dousing the entire building with a fire extinguisher.

The thieves also stole all of the keys to the center, forcing all of the locks to be changed.

The Community Center also houses the Community Health Care Clinic.

Police are asking anyone with information about who these people are or with details about this case are is asked to contact Sheriff’s Detective Ava Reyna at 512-854-7407 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS (512-472-8477).
