TEMPLE - Police have arrested three burglary suspects at a Temple home overnight Thursday, after an alert neighbor called police about someone breaking into a nearby home.

41-year-old Jerry Blanchard, of Temple, 24-year-old Tiffany Carter, of Temple, and 34-year-old Destiny Leitschuh, of Temple, are in the Bell County Jail, pending arraignment.

Temple police were called out to a home in the 300 block of N. 7th St. just before midnight on Thursday, April 10, after getting a call from a neighbor who heard glass breaking and believed someone was breaking into a nearby home.

Police arrived on the scene and found a rear window at the home broken. Officers could hear movement inside the home, and set a perimeter around the house. A woman left out the rear door of the home a short time later, and was taken into custody.

A canine unit was sent into the house after police made announcements for the suspects to leave, but no one came out. The other suspects inside the home fled into the attic crawl space, but the canine unit did not pursue them due to safety concerns.

Members from the Temple PD SWAT unit then arrived. Police again made several more announcements for the burglars to leave the house and surrender to officers. Police then used CS gas into the attic space. The two other burglary suspects then came out and were taken into custody without incident.

The house was being renovated and no one was living there at the time of the burglary. Investigators reviewed cases with the Bell County District Attorney’s Office Friday morning and criminal complaints were issued.
