By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, August 23, 2014

If you haven’t received a package you’ve been expecting, you might want to call the Parker County Sheriff’s Office.

Parker County Sheriff’s investigators recently recovered a large amount of stolen property, including many packages believed stolen from homes in Parker, Tarrant and Wise counties that had been delivered by UPS or FedEx.

Jerry L. Weeks

Jerry L. Weeks, 34, of Weatherford was arrested Aug. 13 and charged with theft $50-$500 and theft $500-$1,500 in connection with the case. If it is determined during the investigation that Weeks stole packages delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, he could face additional federal charges.

According to the Parker County Sheriff’s Office, Weeks implicated himself in numerous thefts that took place throughout the three counties.

During the investigation, officers found numerous suspected stolen items in a hotel room rented by Weeks, who claimed he found a large portion of the property in a trash bin located at a storage facility in Wise County. Most of the packages’ labels had been removed, making it difficult to locate who the packages belong to.

Weeks told investigators that he sold many of the stolen items for drugs and money. Other items were thrown away.

Some of the items reported stolen included ammunition, jewelry, clothing, electronics, guitars, a trumpet, iPhones, rodeo equipment, toys, cosmetics, hunting equipment, souvenirs, home decorations, printer paper and ink, crafts, oil field tools, cleaning supplies and a pipeline Geo phone.

Victims are encouraged to call the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at 817-594-8845 to identify their items.
