RUSK COUNTY (KLTV) - Friday evening, state and local authorities executed a hard entry search/arrest warrant. The search warrant consisted of three houses on Hwy 84 West, in Southwest Rusk County. That search resulted in the arrest of one suspect, a black male in his mid-twenties, who was booked into the Rusk County Jail.
Then, just before 1:00 a.m. today, a second arrest warrant was executed in Rusk County on County Road 3231D. That warrant resulted in the arrest of a second suspect. Authorities say he also is a black male in his mid twenties. That suspect is in the Rusk County Jail.
The suspects' names will be released after they are carried before magistrate and arraigned.
Sheriff Danny Pirtle says the investigation and apprehension of both capital murder suspects was the result of teamwork by all agencies involved. The suspects were apprehended without incident due to diligent planning and execution of all agencies combined.
