Cop Nabs Robber in The Act

A Tyler robber chooses to rob the wrong place, at the wrong time.

It happened at the Medicine Shoppe on East Fifth Street in Tyler Friday morning.

Tyler police say 21-year old James Fowler of Nacogdoches, threatened a store clerk with a knife and stole medications from the store. But as Fowler ran for his car, the store clerk noticed a Tyler police officer parked in an adjacent parking lot. The officer stopped Fowler's car, and arrested him on the spot.
