Blake Kenneth Dietrich, 18, of Aledo, was arrested Thursday night, Nov. 10, after being caught attempting to enter Hall’s Aledo Medicine Store.

Parker County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglary in progress call about 11:30 p.m. Sheriff Larry Fowler said Dietrich was discovered by Sheriff’s deputies and Willow Park Police officers in the 600 block of North FM 1187, around 11:30 p.m., attempting to enter the pharmacy through a rear window.

Willow Park officers reported Dietrich was standing on the hood of his black Jeep Wrangler with his hands inside a broken window, attempting to enter the building.

Two cash registers and an automatic rifle were found in the passenger seat of Dietrich’s jeep.

Officers reported that Dietrich implicated himself in four additional burglaries committed that same evening in the same shopping strip and area.

Dietrich told officers he intended to steal opiate-type medications to sell when officers apprehended him.

Dietrich was arrested on five counts of burglary of a building and one count of fraudulent use/possession of identifying information. His total bond was set at $45,000. As of Monday afternoon, Dietrich remained incarcerated at the Parker County Jail.

An unrelated offense was reported Nov. 10, in the 100 block of Taos Circle, where the complainant told deputies a prowler was on her property. The victim believed the suspect to be Dietrich. She also reported she believed Dietrich broke into her residence and stole an automatic rifle, a flat-screen television with wall mount, a backpack, a guitar amplifier and an iPhone.

Officers and deputies found some of the reported stolen items in Dietrich’s Jeep at the time of the pharmacy burglary.

Sheriff’s investigators are seeking a warrant for the burglary of a habitation on Dietrich to add to the charges.
