Austin Police Arrest Trio Suspected In 40 Business Break-Ins
Updated: Wednesday, January 15 2014, 06:06 PM CST
East Austinite Shelley Brothers is relieved to learn the trio believed to be responsible for a string of burglaries was arrested.
"Ah man, I'm thankful that they caught everybody," added Brothers.
Terry Robinson, Anthony Machado and his wife Martha are accused of breaking into 40 businesses. Many of them are on the east side of Austin.
In every case the suspects used a brick to break into front door to the shop. The cost to the business was more expensive then what was actually stolen.
"These people's businesses had $4,000 and $5,000 worth of damage," said Austin police commander Fred Fletcher.
Using tips from the public and police work, detectives set up an undercover sting. They say helicopter cameras caught the threesome in the act.
"This came as a very pleasant surprise to us today," said Kelly Abshire.
Abshire is the owner of Hot Mama's Espresso Bar in east Austin.
KEYE TV talked to Abshire last month when her business was broken into. We thought she'd appreciate an update.
"When you pulled up I thought either they're having lunch or have some good news for us," added Abshire.
All three suspects are charged with two counts of burglary to a business. That's a state jail felony.
