Two East Texas men are jailed on charges of holding up a Longview store late Tuesday.

Longview Police say Colden Jawahn Tinsley, 23, waited in a getaway car around 11:30 p.m. outside the store in the 300 block of Mobberly Avenue while 19-year-old Brian Antell Burns robbed a victim inside the store.

Investigators say Burns struck a victim with a pistol and took about $550 in cash, a laptop, pistol and cigarettes.

Patrol officers spotted the suspect vehicle near the intersection of Cotton Street and Clover Lane and began following east on Cotton Street.

Burns led police on a foot chase and was overtaken in a field just north of Cotton Street.

Officers said they recovered $557 cash in Burns' right front pocket.

A search of the car revealed the pistol used in the holdup as well as the one stolen.

Tinsley is being held in the Gregg County jail on bonds totaling $51,000 on charges of aggravated robbery and possession of marijuana.

Burns is being held in the Gregg County Jail on bonds totaling $55,000 on charges of aggravated robbery, evading arrest detention and resisting search or transport.
