LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Longview police have a man in custody after a business burglary that occurred on March 17.

Police say that at 3:33 a.m., an audible burglary alarm went off inside a business in the `1200 block of South High Street. An officer responded and noticed two suspects leaving the business through the damaged front door. They were dressed all in black and were carrying backpacks. 

The officer attempted to stop the suspects, police say, but they both ran from him. However, both suspects were captured after a short foot pursuit. 

One of the suspects was found to be a juvenile, but the other has been identified as Dewayne Lamont Black, Jr., 18, of Longview. He was arrested for Burglary of a Building, a state jail felony. 

Police say they also found that Black had three previous convictions for Evading Arrest/Detention and was charged with Evading Arrest/Detention with Prior Convictions. Officials say they transported Black to the Gregg County Jail without further incident.
