Tyler Police Department:

TYLER (KYTX) - Tyler Police have arrested five of the seven suspects who are responsible for the crime spree that occurred early Wednesday morning, December 12, 2012.  

On December 12, 2012, around 4:00 a.m. a Van Zandt County Sheriff's Deputy drove up on a Burglary in progress of a rental storage facility near interstate 20.  Five suspects were taken into custody by the Sheriff's Department after a foot chase.   

Upon further investigation it was discovered that these individuals were also responsible for a string of criminal acts that were committed in the Tyler and Smith County area hours before their arrest. 

At 1:20 a.m. December 12, 2012 the suspects stole a Dickey's Van from Dickey's BBQ on the WSW Loop 323.  At 2:11 a.m., the suspects attempted to steal an ATM machine from the Texas Bank and Trust, located on W. Grande.  The suspects ditched the stolen vehicle behind the Brookshire's Fresh Store and got back into their personal vehicles. They then went to a Kidd Jones convenience store on Hwy. 155 South and burglarized the business at 2:33 a.m. At 4:00 a.m. they were caught in the act of burglarizing the storage facility in Van Zandt County.

3. Marque Kaleb Hart, 21, Terrell, Texas.

4. James Darron Miller Jr., 25, Dallas, Texas.
