Three arrested in Smith Co. following home invasion, chase

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Three suspects are in custody Monday morning after a home invasion in western Smith County.

Around 9:40 a.m., the Smith County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting a burglary in progress at a home in the 11000 block of Sycamore Street. Deputies were already en route to the burglary in progress call after receiving a call of suspicious activity in the same area.

During that time, the homeowner returned to the residence to find the suspects leaving her residence. The suspects fled in a black pickup truck and passed one of the responding deputies. A pursuit ensued, ending in the 12000 block of Highway 64.

When the pickup truck stopped, one of the passengers fled on foot into a nearby wooded area. A second deputy chased the suspect on foot and apprehended him. The first deputy stayed with the vehicle, apprehending the remaining two suspects on site. Items taken from the residence were recovered from the fleeing vehicle.

Two males are being held for involvement in the burglary, as well as the female driver of the pickup truck. They are being interviewed by Smith County Sheriff’s Office detectives at this time. A 4-year-old passenger in the vehicle has been identified as a relative of the driver and has been released to his mother.

It is not known at this time whether there were multiple homes burglarized in the same area in connection with these individuals. The investigation is ongoing, and more information will be released as it becomes available.
