TYLER, TX - On Thursday, October 21, 2010 around 2:00 a.m. several citizens called in reporting that they had their vehicles broken into. The callers stated they observed a maroon Lincoln Town car occupied with several Hispanic males involved in the crime.

The suspects were last reported breaking into a vehicle on Industrial Street around 3:15 a.m. when an officer spotted the suspect vehicle. The suspects bailed from the vehicle after running off the road, but the driver of the vehicle was apprehended after a short foot pursuit. The three other suspects were able to get away and are in the process of being identified.

Upon searching the suspect vehicle, officers located numerous electronic items in the trunk that were stolen from vehicles in the city. The driver was identified as Martin Jr. Gonzalez, H/M, 11/12/1990. Gonzalez was charged with four counts of Auto Burglary, Possession of Marijuana, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and Evading Arrest.

Tyler Police have taken over 12 auto burglary reports this morning along with a report of an Unauthorized Use of Motor Vehicle from a repair shop on W. Gentry that matches the suspect vehicle involved in this crime spree. That crime is still under investigation.

The suspects broke out windows of cars at the following locations: S. Beckham, N. Carlyle, N. Glenwood, S. Wall, Merrimac, Hudson, Pollard, S. Porter and S. Donnybrook.
