Tree trimming solicitor, accomplices burglarize Castle Hills home

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Castle Hills police are investigating a burglary involving a door-to-door solicitor.

Police said a man went to an elderly resident’s house to solicit tree trimming work on the property.

The man, who Shavano Park police said was dressed in business attire and said he was from New York, convinced the homeowner to go to the backyard under the premise that he can show what work they can do.

While they were in the backyard, two other suspects went into the house and burglarized it.

Shavano Park police said the suspect was driving a white SUV.
