3 Arrested in Beer Robbery

A thirst for beer has landed 3 East Texas men in jail on charges of organized criminal activity.

18 year old James Hicks, 19 year old Thomas Stuve and 19 year old Michael Lacy were taken into custody around 11:30 last night after police caught the trio trying to unload a beer truck at a business just off Eastman Road.

Police say there has been a continuing problem at the location. The men were spotted by an off duty officer, and after a short foot chase they were placed under arrest.

The men were charged with organized criminal activity. All three are now out on bond.
