Denton County sheriff’s deputies responded to the 300 block of Bentson Drive in Lantana on Thursday afternoon after a woman reported that someone had taken her television.

According to sheriff’s reports, the woman said someone took a new 40-inch Samsung TV from the living room of the home she was moving into. The incident, according to the resident, happened sometime between 12:30 and 3:30 p.m.

When she left to meet movers at her former house, the complainant stated, she did not lock the garage door at her new residence because the electric door opener wasn’t working and she didn’t know how to use the manual lock.

When she returned to her new residence at 3:30 p.m., the television was missing from the living area, according to the report. There were no signs of forced entry, and the front and rear doors were locked, according to reports.
