It didn't take long for police to pick up a couple they believe robbed a Tyler convenience store on Wednesday.

DPS made the stop on I-20, about fifteen miles into Van Zandt county. Joseph Loren Beall and his driver, Eilene Ann Ivett were arrested.. Police say their car was recognized in connection with the robbery of the Super Food Mart in Tyler, and that a handgun was found in the car.

It was less than two hours between the time of the robbery and the arrest of the couple.
