Officials continue search for possible piece of evidence related to robbery

Authorities returned to Lake Palestine Saturday to try and uncover a safe, which authorities believe may be a clue to piecing together a robbery which happened over a week ago.

Saturday afternoon, Van Zandt County Sheriff's officials, Henderson County Sheriff's officials, Smith County Sheriff's officials, county Game Wardens and area volunteer fire departments returned to Lake Palestine to try to recover the stolen safe that they believe was dumped into Lake Palestine following the robbery.

Authorities are using side scanning sonar to try and locate the object. Officials also added that a tip came in after the story aired on KLTV 7 that led them to one of the suspects that is on the run. Authorities added that the suspect was able to escape before they could catch up to him, but believe him to still be in the area.
