DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) -

Diboll Police have arrested three men in connection to a house burglary in which approximately 15 guns were stolen. Three juveniles were also taken into custody.

According to the police report, burglars entered the house on the 1400 block of North Hendrix Avenue on May 28 and stole shotguns and rifles, jewelry and $800 in coins.

Fortunately for police, one of the juveniles left behind his identification and detectives were able to identify the rest of the suspects following an interview with the juvenile and his parents.

Diboll Police arrested Kevin Ray Cook, 17, Ned Alan Smith, 42, of Corrigan, and Pedro Martinez, 18. Smith is charged with theft of firearm because he was not involved in the burglary, but in attempts to sell the guns, according to the report. Cook and Martinez are charged with burglary of a habitation.
