Thieves steal from home evacuated because of floods

Posted: Updated:

CEDAR HILL ( - Thieves recently stole items from a home in Cedar Hill that had to evacuate due to flooding.

The house is located along the Big River and three feet of water got inside during flooding. The resident, who is renting, told News 4 he moved many items to the second floor before evacuating. When he returned home, he found that a television, game system and other electronics valued at around $3,400 had been stolen.

The home’s owner said he is offering $500 to anyone who has information that leads to an arrest.

The landlord believes the thieves used a boat or wore waders because of how high the water was at the time.
