Anita Miller - Managing Editor

Police say thieves may have returned to the scene of previous crimes over the weekend, cutting a lock on a city-owned storage shed and stealing at least one weed eater.

San Marcos Police Sergeant Jehu Derrickson said officers who responded were told it happens “about once a month,” and from images captured on a security camera, is likely the work of the same person.

The weed eater was stolen from a Conex box behind the Regional Animal Shelter on River Road.
