CORRIGAN, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Corrigan Police Department arrested a 27-year-old man on Thursday on a felony burglary of a building charge after he allegedly smashed in the front door to a donut shop and took a jar containing donations for a sick child’s medical expenses. James

Dondrell Woods, of Corrigan, was arrested on a felony burglary of a building charge. No information was available on his bond amount.

According to Johnna Lowe, a spokeswoman for the Corrigan Police Department, CPD officers were dispatched out to Fresh Donuts at approximately 3:42 a.m. in reference to a report that the front door’s glass had been broken.

A money jar with money for medical expenses donated for a hospitalized child in the community was taken from the business, according to Lowe.

Officer David Hernandez and his K9 partner, Heston, responded to the business and found the door broken out. After Hernandez, Heston, and the business owner secured the donut shop, the officer and his dog tracked the suspect’s scent to the intersection of Front and West streets. At that point, Heston lost the scent.

Hernandez obtained surveillance video of the suspect. After further investigation by Chief Darrell Gibson, Officer Harold Rapsilver, and Officer Jacob Hopper, another video was acquired from a nearby business.

Video enhancements were conducted, and the suspect was identified as Woods.

Corrigan Police officers located and arrested Woods on Thursday.
