HEWITT, TX — Hewitt Police arrested a 27-year-old woman who they say is connected to several vehicle and home burglaries in the area.

Police were looking into a burglary in the area between Warren Drive and Hewitt Park when a neighbor called to report a suspicious person running from a backyard and leaving on a bike.

After a foot chase, police arrested and detained Kristin Elizabeth Copeland.

Police said they found stolen items on Copeland and stashes of items in the area that appeared to be hidden for later.

Officers noticed that Copeland fit the description of the suspect in other burglaries reported as far back as October and decided to look into those cases.

She has now been charged with at least eight counts of vehicle and home burglaries so far.
