Wichita Falls Police Say Thieves Targeting Unusual Property

Police say thieves stole the batteries from a tornado siren box at McKinney and Rowland on October 13th. The same box was hit yet again on Thursday night but the criminals accidentally tripped the siren and ran off before they could retrieve the batteries. In both cases, the battery box suffered significant damage.

Police ask that if you see anyone parked near or tampering with a siren poll to please call 9-1-1 immediately.
