A $5,000 reward is being offered in a recent burglary. The Brenham/Washington County Crime Stoppers, in cooperation with the Washington County Sheriff's Office, is offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and indictment for those responsible for recent Washington County residential burglaries. During the burglaries, firearms and electronics have been stolen. Specifically, the Sheriff’s office is asking the public for their help in identifying suspicious persons or vehicles in and around a residence in the 2100 block of Rau Road during the daytime hours of Thursday, December 7. Information suggests a vehicle and possibly a trailer were utilized in the latest burglary.
Washington County Sheriff Otto Hanak wants the public to know that his office is aggressively pursuing all information and evidence related to this and other burglaries, yet the solvability rate of burglaries remains low, unless evidence exists and some assistance from the public is provided. Sheriff Hanak asks that our citizens remain vigilant when traveling our roads, especially county roads and to be observant for unfamiliar vehicles and persons in and around private property.

Your name will remain anonymous and you may be eligible for the cash reward.
