Fingerprints, pawn shop records lead to burglary suspects
Burglary suspects Robert Threatt, Ebony Hinton linked to at least 2 separate cases
Burglary suspects Ebony Hinton, 23, and Robert Threatt, 17, are behind bars thanks to fingerprints and pawn shop records, according to their arrest warrant affidavits.
The two suspects both were arrested Wednesday in connection with separate cases.
According to the affidavit, police believe Hinton hangs out with “known burglars” and has a history of pawning things.
Detectives found records at Cash America Pawn on Austin Highway, showing she had sold a television and video game system that were reported stolen after a home burglary last month, the affidavit stated.
Hinton lives in the same apartment complex where the burglary happened, the affidavit stated.
For Threatt, what tipped police was a set of fingerprints. Police said they lifted the prints from two windows on a home on Viking Coral Street that was burglarized in June.
The affidavit does not mention what was taken during that burglary.
Police said they compared the prints they collected to fingerprints in a database and came up with a match for Threatt.
Records show he has a prior arrest for evading arrest.
Both suspects have been charged with burglary.
