Break-in thief arrested in White Settlement


A thief wanted by Burleson police was arrested this past Thursday after an officer spotted a stolen SUV at the IHOP in White Settlement. Angel Del Rio was arrested Thursday evening at a White Settlement home, officials said. He was taken into custody in connection with several vehicle burglaries, the theft of a vehicle and the burglary of a home, all of which took place this week in northern Burleson. Detectives said Del Rio was identified as being part of a group that may include three other people.

Police say they broke into the garage, entered through the house, came in through the living room, snatched the Playstation, Xbox, and some other things, and took off. It all happened while the mother and her kids were home.

Detectives say this is not the suspects’ first rodeo with this kind of crime — they’re reportedly wanted for crimes in other cities as well.
