LINDALE, TX (KLTV) - Smith County authorities are looking for what they are calling a felony theft suspect.


It all started when the Smith County Sheriff's Department was called to a home near the intersection of FM 16 and County Road 481, a couple miles west of Lindale.

A Smith County Constable tells us the suspects, Timothy Nelson and Dustin Miles Adams took off.

A DPS helicopter was called in to assist with the search.

The Constables Office, along with the help of a Van Zandt County Constable's office, were able to catch Adams.

Van Zandt County Constable Pat Jordan says, "The citizen was pretty courageous. He decided he'd get out and start chasing him, so he started chasing him and I went to the other side of the woods and we came together and captured him."

The other suspect, Adams, is being charged with felony theft, and possession of a controlled substance.
