“This guy was dressed like a meter reader and in most cases, it’s a clever disguise,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “He slips into the side yard undetected and breaks a window on the home. However, in this case, he didn’t gain entry. Nevertheless, the broken window cost approximately $300. Someone out there wants a cash reward and this is the way to get it. We need to nail this guy and keep him out of our neighborhoods.”
