TEMPLE -- Two teens are now in custody after trying to run off with stolen beer.
Police tell us 18-year-old George Reyes and 18-year-old Cyrus McKenzie were trying to steal an 18 pack of beer when the clerk confronted them.
They threatened clerk so the employee called police.
Officers arrived just as the teens were leaving. The officer caught one suspect, but the other suspect interfered and both fled again. Eventually, Reyes was caught by responding officers near North 31st Street. McKenzie was caught in the parking lot of Temple ISD’s bus barn in the 1000 block of North 31st Street.
Both suspects are charged with robbery and evading arrest.
