Editor's note: This article has been updated with new information from the Denison Police Department and the photo of the man no longer being sought by the department has been removed.
The Denison Police Department said the man in a photo released to the media Thursday morning is no longer a suspect in a burglary of a habitation and debit/credit card abuse case.
Just over an hour after the Herald Democrat posted the man’s photo on its website and Facebook page, Denison Police said a member of the department had spoken with the man and he was no longer a suspect. Lt. Mike Eppler confirmed a detective had eliminated the man in the photo as a suspect. Denison Police are not currently pursuing any new suspects and are hoping someone from the community will come forward with new information for the case.
The burglary occurred at a home in the 300 block of North Fannin Avenue on Sept. 5 between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The burglary was considered a break-in but police are unsure whether force was used. Denison Police believe the suspect used a door to enter the residence.
Eppler said debit or credit cards were stolen from the residence and then used several times at a convenience store at 521 N. Austin Ave. The photo released was taken from surveillance footage at the convenience store.
Denison Police encourage anyone with knowledge of the incident to call officer Amy Mills at 903-465-2422 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Detective John Watt at 903-465-2422, ext. 2323.
