Falls County Sheriff’s Office said that they have captured all three of the suspects who they said tried to burglarize a home off of County Road 248 and 249.

The Marlin Police Department police chief and a deputy from the Falls County Sheriff's Office found the first suspect, and search dogs found the second suspect. Thanks to a tip, they were then able to find the third.

Jose Luis Moreno, 21, Christopher Hernandez, 18, and Timothy Burns, 26, all face Burglary with Habitation charges. Burns also had warrants for drug charges out of Falls County.

Investigators said the homeowner came home and found the three taking her things. They ran away, and the woman got in her car and chased them. They began to throw some of the stolen items out of the vehicle, and eventually crashed, got out and ran.

Investigators said no one was hurt.

Police called in a helicopter from the McLennan County Sheriff's Office and search dogs from TDCJ.

Falls County Sheriff's Office, McLennan County Sheriff's Office, Limestone County Sheriff's Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, Game Wardens, Constables from Precinct 1 and 2 from Falls County, TDCJ Hobby Unit, Marlin Police Department and Rosebud Police Department helped.
