Medicine Chest burglars caught

Ennis police are looking for the final suspect of three involved in the attempted burglary of Medicine Chest Monday morning. The pharmacy is located at 718 W. Lampasas St.
Det. Sgt. Mike Hopson said a security guard at the old Ennis Regional Medical Hospital building observed a white Dodge truck parked outside Medicine Chest at 12:04 a.m. Officer Kevin Tuley was dispatched to the area and upon arrival spoke with the witness who said three black males threw a rock through the front window of the pharmacy and entered the building. The witness gave descriptions of the three men.
Tuley reported seeing a man matching the description walk out of the pharmacy through the broken window holding a multi-colored bag filled with items and a small safe-type box. Tuley ordered the suspect to stop but the man began running. Hopson said the man was detained and the safe and bag were recovered.
Hopson said while Tuley was chasing his suspect and another suspect was apprehended, police dispatch informed officers that a witness reported a man in the area was asking for a ride to Terrell. The witness attempted to detain the man but was unsuccessful. According to the police report, officers chased the suspect but lost contact with the man. Hopson said the suspect has been identified and warrants are being obtained for his arrest.
Hopson reported the vehicle the suspects were seen using was reported stolen by the Terrell police department.
Jeremy Brown, 23, and Jerry Dabney, 22, both of Terrell were arrested and charged with burglary of a building.
Any information regarding this incident should be reported to Det. Lt. Ron Roark at 875-4462.
