Last night, around midnight, Tyler Police responded to a report of broken glass at Sam's Deli Bar and Grill. When they got there, officers discovered that a plate glass window had been broken and cases of alcohol and some cash were stolen.
A witness to the burglary saw several people running across the street into the Salado Apartment complex, carrying bottles of alcohol.
When officers visited Salado Apartments today to follow up on the case, one of the people being interviewed by the police, Jason Hanlon, 26, fled from the detective. While the detective was unable to locate Hanlon, he was able to search his apartment and found assorted alcohol boxes that were found empty. Officers also found marijuana and a .38 handgun hidden in the toilet.
Investigators are still looking for suspects in this case. Anyone with any details should call Tyler Police.
