LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

After responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle near the Bounds Autoplex car dealership on US 59, Livingston Police officers arrested four Houston men in connection to tires and rims being stolen from one of the new cars on the lot early Sunday morning.

"They called me at about 4:55 a.m. Sunday morning and by the time I got dressed and got here it was 5:45," said Autoplex owner Bryan Bounds. "By the time I got here they already had all four apprehended."

All four men were booked into the Polk County Jail. Each man was charged with three felonies - theft between $1,500 and $20,000, theft of a firearm, and possession of a firearm by a felony. Javis Devone McQueen, 24, Denzell Devon Lucious, 22, and Jerry Trevion Hughes, 23, are still being held in the Polk County Jail. Each man's collective bail was set at $75,000.

Markise McQueen, 23, was not listed on the Polk County Jail Web site.

According to a press release, LPD officers were dispatched to the feeder road near Bounds Autoplex at approximately 4:50 a.m., and they found a vehicle parked near the side of the road. They also spotted a dark-colored car leaving the scene.

The Livingston Police officers made a traffic stop on the vehicle, which was occupied by Markise McQueen, Javis McQueen, Hughes, and Lucious. When the officers got consent to search the car, they allegedly found a gun that had been stolen in Houston.

After the officers checked the area, they found that someone had taken the tires and rims from one of the new cars at the car dealership. Further investigation of the area in the vicinity of the crime scene revealed a vehicle that was registered to a family member of one of the subjects. The vehicle allegedly contained the stolen tires and rims.

"In a six hour time period not only did the Livingston Police Department catch the four suspects, they also got my tires and wheels back," Bounds said.

"Additional evidence was located linking the subjects to the stolen tires and rims," the press release stated.

The incident marked the third time since April that rims have been stolen from a car lot in East Texas. In April, Wagner Cadillac in Tyler was hit by thieves who 80 wheels and tires. In May, rex Perry Autoplex in Nacogdoches had over $30,000 in rims and tires stolen.

"It is early in the investigation, but we are in contact with Nacogdoches Police to see if there is any connection between the two incidents," said Livingston Detective Marty Drake.
