5 Tyler businesses hit in early morning burglaries

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KTYX) -  Tyler Police searching for a man accused of helping rob four businesses early Wednesday morning.

18-year-old Damarian Amie is under arrest for attempted burglary, and police are looking for a second man.

Three of the burglaries were along Fifth Street: Taqueria El Lugar, XLN Pool Room and Club, and Mama's Restaurant, all broken in to. As surveillance video shows the same burglars hit the Midway Mini Mart on South Broadway and Houston too. Business owners are worried.

"Quite aggravating, yes. If they want something they need to go work for it themselves like we do," said XLN owner Robin Griffith. 

"Kinda frustrated this morning to start the day with that situation," added Goya Cruz, a server at Mama's Restaurant, next door to XLN. 

If you have any information on the crimes contact Tyler Police.
