SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Smith County Sheriff's deputies and Precinct 2 constables are searching for one of two burglary suspects who broke into a home on Lake Placid Road in Southern Smith County.

Authorities say the homeowner called deputies when she noticed her front door was kicked in. When constables arrived, the suspects ran through a plate glass door into a wooded area.

Authorities have one suspect in custody and are using search dogs and horses to track the other.

The suspects took several items including a loaded pistol so authorities believe the suspect they are chasing may be armed and dangerous.
