Timothy Scott Scoggins

He is 37-year-old, Timothy Scott Scoggins.  He was identified through a DNA match from evidence left at the scene. Police are currently working to identify the other suspect wanted in connection with the home invasion. Police are re-issuing a sketch of him in the hope that someone may recognize him.

The home invasion occurred shortly before 1:00 p.m. on May 2. The resident stated she was at home when a male approached her front door and advised he was looking for his dog.  When the victim opened the door, the male forced his way inside the residence and contacted the second suspect via walkie-talkie. The suspects, who were both armed with firearms, restrained the victim inside her home and demanded money and other valuables.  When the homeowner’s adult son returned home, the suspects fled the scene in a black newer model GMC SUV.

Southlake police are searching for the second suspect who is described as a white male in his early 30’s, around 6’0” tall and heavyset. At the time of the offense, he was wearing a baseball cap with a “Cub Scout Leader” emblem in black and neon green embroidery, thin brown wireframe glasses, a long-sleeved button-down dress shirt, dark pants, and dress shoes.
