Jenkins returns home

Former employee accused of stealing almost $17 million from the Collin Street Bakery

Corsicana — Sandy Jenkins, who has been accused of stealing almost $17 million from the Collin Street Bakery before being fired as controller of the company, came home to Corsicana Monday afternoon. He broke into his own home on West Third Avenue, a necessity since the FBI had changed the locks on the doors.

Police went to the home when the alarm company reported a break-in, but after checking, they found no arrest warrant and left Jenkins and his wife in their home.

“I can confirm the police department responded to an intrusion alarm in the 1200 block of West Third Avenue. Upon arrival, the officers determined Mr. Jenkins had the legal authority to be there. We left the area,” said Police Chief Randy Bratton.

There are no arrest warrants — federal or state — out on Jenkins, Bratton said. The FBI is in charge of investigating the case.

An FBI spokeswoman would not comment except to confirm that the FBI did participate in the search of Jenkins’ house last week.

The FBI raided the home July 24, seizing two vans full of goods from the house, as well as two luxury cars from the garage. Jenkins was not home at the time.

No one answered the door or doorbell when a Corsicana Daily Sun reporter went to the home Monday evening. His Dallas attorney, Brett Stalcup, did not return phone calls to his office Tuesday.
