Thieves admitted to home burglary, police say


Police arrested two men after they allegedly admitted to taking part in a home burglary on Sunday afternoon on Hinnant Street, according to reports. 

At approximately 4:38 p.m., Sulphur Springs police officers Adrian Pruitt and Cameron Robinson responded to the 400 block of Hinnant Street in response to reports of a disturbance, according to reports. Once there, they spoke with several parties and determined a home burglary had occurred, reports said. 

Cameron Joel Wilks, 27, of Sulphur Springs, and Nicholas Chase Ochoa, 17, of Sulphur Springs, both allegedly admitted to police they had been involved in the burglary. Wilks allegedly told Officer Pruitt he had pawned items from the home, and Ochoa allegedly voluntarily admitted his role in the burglary to Officer Robinson. 

Both men were booked into HCSO jail without incident, where they currently remain, each on a $30,000 bond, according to records.
