Comments () A Text Size

Within 24 hours of his initial report, a landlord’s missing property is on its way to being returned, officials with the Denton County Sheriff’s Department said.

The landlord reported Tuesday that several items belonging to him were missing from the 1700 block of G Cardinas Road.

According to reports, the landlord claimed a tenant removed several sections of pipe and a 16-foot Starcraft camper trailer frame with axles from his property without consent. The value of the property was not listed, according to officials working the case.

Sgt. Larry Kish said the investigator working the case has done a great job on the turnaround of this particular case.

“The property has been located and is in the process of being recovered,” Kish said.

The suspect has been identified and discussion with the landlord has been ongoing, officials said.
