San Marcos Police arrested five Houston residents for burglarizing a pharmacy on Medical Parkway early Friday.
Officers responded to a burglar alarm at 3:52 a.m. and found a car with its engine running and license plate covered.
The five suspects apparently fled in different directions. Over the course of “the next few hours,” the city says police looked for them, arresting one with the help of a K-9 officer in a field behind the Hays County Government Center. Other were located along Broadway Drive.
Chief of Police Chase Stapp credited teamwork and the assistance of the Texas State UPD and San Marcos Fire Department.
Investigators are trying to determine if the suspects are linked to a burglary at the same pharmacy Jan. 17 in which drugs were taken.
The city press release said the five suspects were able to get a safe out of the building.
Arrested were 25-year-old James Edward Jackson, 40-year-old Calvin Louis Clayton, 41-year-old Tyrone Donnell Anderson, 24-year-old Darion Marlon Williams and 34-year-old Antoine Sharod Benson.
