WEST, TX (KXXV) - Two McLennan County men were caught in the act of burglarizing a Woodway business Sunday night, and were held at gunpoint by an officer until backup could arrive.

Gregory Dean Markwardt, 52, and Jonathan Russell Shook, 45, both face a charge of burglary of a building.

A unit responded to the alarm at Industrial Electric on Otis Dr., just after 10 p.m. Sunday night, after police had responded to a false alarm there about an hour earlier.

This time, the responding officer found two men loading up metal items taken from the business. Markwardt and Shook were taken into custody and transported to the McLennan County Jail.
