Tyler Police Investigators have arrested two suspects involved in the Thanksgiving Holiday Burglaries of the Cambridge Apartments, located in the 3800 block Old Omen Rd.
On December 1, 2010 Officers located a large bag of clothing in the dumpster on the property of the apartment complex. The clothing was identified as belonging to several residents that had their apartments broken into. Investigators also recovered a dog stolen from an apartment that was found in possession of another resident.
Evidence started to point to a specific apartment within the complex that was being leased by three students from Tyler Junior College who are from Cedar Hill outside of Dallas, Tx. Investigators have also identified friends of these students who are from the Cedar Hill area who are not students but were involved with the string of burglaries.
Tyler Investigators have arrested 19-year-old Darious Thomas of Cedar Hill on two counts of residential burglary. Thomas who is not a student but attended Kilgore Community College at one time, was connected to a burglary that occurred before the Thanksgiving holiday and one during the holiday. Thomas was associated with the residents who lived on the Cambridge property. Thomas is currently in Smith County Jail.
Investigators have also issued three arrest warrants for Residential Burglary for 19-year-old Larry Dwayne Jones of Cedar Hill, Texas. Investigators have not been able to locate him and believe he has returned to the Dallas area. Jones stated that he was a cousin to one of the residents who lives in the Cambridge Apartments.
This case remains under investigation and investigators expect future arrests as the case unfolds.
