Car Robbery

One suspected robber is in custody. Two others may be on the loose, after breaking into a woman's home. It happened about 1:30 this afternoon on County Road 437 near I-20 in the northwest corner of Smith County. 

Authorities say a man kicked in a woman's backdoor, when the stolen car he was in broke down on the Interstate. He took the woman's keys, and stole her car. She immediately called police, and he was caught on I-20 in Canton.

Police are still looking for two other men, the suspect says were with him at the time of the robbery. We do not know the suspects name yet, but he is charged with stealing the woman's car, and a weapons charge.
