Tyler resident Ruth Estrella says that her house was burglarized while her sister was inside her home early Saturday evening.

According to Estrella, she was grocery shopping with her son and one month old baby when she received a text message from her sister saying that someone was in her home and told her to call 911.

“i can’t imagine how scared she was,” Estrella said

The burglars fled the scene before Tyler police arrived. Estrella’s sister was not hurt.

Estrella says that several homes in her neighborhood have been targeted by burglars this year and hopes that Tyler police do more to stop them. However, she remains unconvinced authorities are doing all they can to put an end to the crime.

“Just don't see anything being done about it,” Estrella said.
