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.

Police: Frequent tool thefts from city might be the work of the same person

Police say thieves may have returned to the scene of previous crimes over the weekend, cutting a lock on a city-owned storage shed and stealing at least one weed eater.

San Marcos Police Sergeant Jehu Derrickson said officers who responded were told it happens “about once a month,” and from images captured on a security camera, is likely the work of the same person.

The weed eater was stolen from a Conex box behind the Regional Animal Shelter on River Road.
