Cochise Sheriff: Alert neighbors interrupt possible burglary

COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Cochise County Sheriff's Office is investigating a possible burglary case.  

According to a news release, CCSO was notified of suspicious activity around 6 p.m. Thursday, May 11 in the 6000 block of East Pintek Lane in Hereford. 

The caller advised that she and her husband were watching a neighbor's house while he was out of state, when they noticed the gate to the property and the door to the house were open and a white truck was parked outside.  

She told CCSO that they had made contact with a Hispanic man, who was wearing a red Cardinals jersey and a black wristband. The man told the couple he was supposed to be at the house, but they knew otherwise.  According to the couple, the man got back inside his truck and sped off, driving through a fence to get away.  

Deputies in the department's helicopter tracked the man's vehicle to an address near Rose Street.  According to the release, the truck had been covered in a tarp, but the man was not located.

The investigation into the case and the search for the man are ongoing.
