Three people are in custody following a residential burglary Tuesday morning in southern Smith County.
Radio traffic stated the burglary occurred about 9:45 a.m. Tuesday 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 and 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.
