At least three people are in custody after an alleged smash and grab robbery overnight on the north side of town. Police say three teens used a stolen minivan to bust into a Shell station on FM 529 near Lakeview Haven. The station manager tells us this is the second time they've been hit this week.

Apparently, yesterday morning about 2am, at least four men busted out the window of the front door, got in and took some cigarettes. Today at about the same time, three guys broke out the full floor to ceiling window next to the door and this time got cigarettes and the cash register.

The suspects took off and police were able to track them down and gave chase. The chase came to an end at the East Freeway near Gregg.

The store manager tells Eyewitness News they just spent $6,900 to upgrade the register system and now it's ruined.

All three were taken into custody without incident.
