Released by the Tyler Police Department:

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - On Friday, July 15, 2011 at 12:17 p.m. the Tyler Police Department was notified by a concerned neighbor who observed several males running from her neighbor's carport in the 700 block of Hudson Street with assorted lawn equipment in their hands.

The witness gave a detailed description of the suspect vehicle as it left the area.  Officer Larry Christian spotted the suspect vehicle minutes later in the parking lot of K's Food Mart located at Vine and Glenwood Street. 

Officers located the stolen lawn equipment in the trunk of the vehicle and placed two suspects under arrest for Burglary of a Habitation.

The suspects arrested were identified as Ronald Joseph Williams, B/M, 03/08/1990 and Demarkus Dewayne Osborn, B/M, 11/12/1989.  Both suspects were transported to the Smith County Jail and booked in on a 2nd degree Felony.

This vehicle has been described by witnesses in similar types of thefts of lawn equipment in S. Tyler recently and investigators will be interviewing the suspects.

This is a fine example of Community Policing in which neighbors were watching out for one another and reported information that allowed police to catch the criminals with the stolen property.
