The Burnet County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's help in identifying the driver of the truck in this photo. The truck pictured was involved in two incidents of criminal mischief at the J&J Market in Briggs.


On 12/12/2018, just after midnight, the suspect intentionally backed the truck into one of the gas pumps at the business, damaging the pump. Previously, on 10/1/2018 at about 6:30 PM, the truck was intentionally backed into the store owner's vehicle which was parked at the store.
