An arrest warrant has been issued for Chris Sanchez, 18, the suspect believed to have been involved in the burglary at Atchison’s Jewelry Wednesday morning.

Investigators believe that Sanchez may also be connected to the first burglary at Atchison’s and the burglary at Abbeville Dentistry earlier this month.

A Levelland officer discovered the burglary around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday while on patrol and found the glass on the front door was shattered.

Officers responded and cleared the building before allowing the owners to enter and assess what was taken.

Investigators located a kettlebell weight inside a shattered display case in the business. They believe the weight was used to break the glass on the front door for the suspect to gain entry to the building.

Police said around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, a theft was reported at Walmart in which Sanchez reportedly ran out of the store with a kettlebell weight.

Investigators followed up on the lead and pulled video footage from Walmart to identify the suspect. After discovering additional information about the stolen jewelry being recovered, they were able to secure a warrant for Sanchez’ arrest.

Anyone with information on Sanchez’ whereabouts is urged to contact the Levelland Police Department by calling 894-6164.
