As deputies arrived to investigate, a second call was received from Tyler Iron and Metal, located on North Loop 323. An employee of the business was suspicious of the suspects as they attempted to sell scrap metal. When the employee requested identification, the suspects fled from the business.

Deputies began searching the area and soon located some of the stolen property, which the men had abandoned.

The suspects were located on Highway 155 by Precinct 2 Constable Andy Dunklin. Smith County Sheriff's Office Detectives responded and the two suspects were arrested for burglary of a building.

The property was returned to the owner.

The two suspects are being interviewed and their names will be released after they are booked in to the Smith County Jail.
