Twin Brothers Arrested and Jailed on New Charges

     Twin brothers from Gladewater, one a registered sex offender, are back in jail after more charges of lurking around school campuses. In less than week, one man is arrested for a peeping incident at a Longview dress shop, while another is spotted lurking around a junior high school campus.  Those incidents have led to twin brothers Randal and Russel Harty being arrested and place back in jail.  Police say both were patrolling around area high schools.

    "Both of the Harty suspects have been arrested they both have been established their presence in local junior high parking lots, sometimes approaching children sometimes not" said Sergeant Seth Vanover of the Longview police department.

     20 year old Russel Harty was arrested for spying on a chid while she was dressing in Catos on Monday. Randal is on probation for child pornography, and was ordered to have no contact with anyone under 17 other than his family.  He was also arrested. It was Randal Hartys appearance at Spring Hill junior high on Thursday that authorities say was a clear violation of probation. Parents of Spring Hill children are shocked and angry to hear of the pairs activities.

   "They feed off of children and so that's where they go so absolutely they shouldn't be allowed near a campus or on it" said Spring Hill parent Sherri Murphy.

   "It angers me.  I think people like that should be in jail.  I don't think they should be able to walk around to be on school campus or anywhere," said Steven Murphy. Police in 2 counties now will look to see how many incidents the brothers could be connected to.
