Sheriff's deputies caught thieves suspected of breaking into half a dozen cars in northwest Harris County. It happened on Worthambrook near Marrs. Several residents called 911 after seeing four men driving through the neighborhood in a pickup and breaking into cars. When authorities arrived the men bailed out of the truck and ran off.

Two men were caught, two others got away. Residents say they are fed up with crime in their community.

"I have four cars and three have been broken into in this area in the past four months," said a concerned resident.

Deputies found the stolen items in the back of the suspects' truck. They say the thieves caused thousands of dollars worth of damage.
