Locally, the Smith County Sheriff race is the most contested with four candidates seeking the post held for the past 35 years by Sheriff J.B. Smith. Smith is retiring at the end of the year.

If no single candidate in the race can get a majority of votes, the top two-finishers will head to a run-off election on July 31.

Tyler Police Officer Catches Robbery Suspect

The suspect was arrested a short time after police received a 9-1-1- call that the Texaco Gas Station at 1118 W. Gentry Pkwy was robbed.

Shortly upon arriving on scene, Officer Tim Hutson discovered that a 17 year old Hispanic male, later identified as Alan Michael Rodriguez, had just attempted to rob the store.  Rodriguez immediately attempted to flee the area on foot but was quickly captured by Officer Hutson.

Investigation revealed that Rodriguez displayed a knife to the store clerk and demanded cash from the register.  Rodriguez did not get any money from the clerk. Rodriguez was later booked into the Smith County Jail for Aggravated Robbery, Evading Arrest and Resisting Arrest.
