Three people are in custody following a residential burglary just moments ago in southern Smith County.

Emergency radio traffic monitored in the Tyler Morning Telegraph newsroom indicated the burglary occurred about 9:45 a.m. on County Road 168 off of Texas Highway 155 south near Noonday. 

Smith County Sheriff's Spokesman John Moore said the call came in as an alarm. A deputy responding to the scene saw three males loading up a vehicle. 

"They saw the deputy and attempted to get away, but they ran into a fence and the fence stopped them. The deputy was able to take all three into custody," he said.

Moore said two were adults and one was a juvenile. 

The investigation is ongoing
