Deputies Mike Clore (L) and Lee Dixon received commendations from Sheriff David Greene for work on July burglary cases. Two Milam Count y deput y sheriffs have been commended for their work in early July which helped break up a Houston-based burglary ring.

Mike Clore and Lee Dixon received commendations and exceptional service bars which will be worn on uniforms.

Sher if f Dav id Greene said "quick action" and "attention to detail" by the two deputies, after the department received reports of persons in two white vans committing burglaries, helped resolve the situation.

Antonio Vega, 47, and 27-yearold Mario Moreno were arrested and charged with burglary of a building.

A third suspect has been identified and a warrant for his arrest has been issued. "He is believed to be in hiding in either Houston or Mexico," Greene said.

Greene said the suspects are believed to have been responsible for three Milam County breakins, one or more in Burleson County and other burglaries in counties between Houston and Rockdale.
