Beaumont Police officer Haley Morrow said a 911 call made just after 4:15 a.m., on  Jan. 10, 2019 told police that they saw at least six men breaking into the AT&T store at 4460 Dowlen Road. 

The caller gave a description of the two vehicles used by the men. Police were able to locate the vehicles near Park North Drive and Eastex Freeway. 

Morrow said both vehicles fled north toward Hardin County, where officers alerted Hardin County deputies and the Lumberton Police Department of their pursuit.

Six suspects were taken into police custody later that day. A seventh man in connection with the robbery turned himself in two weeks later.

From the Beaumont Police Department...

On the evening of Wednesday, January 24, 2019, the Beaumont Police Department received notification from the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, that the 7th suspect in the January 10, 2019 AT&T Burglary & subsequent vehicle pursuit, had turned himself in. 

Corey De’Vonte Isaacs, a 26 year old Houston resident, had been hiding near the area that Tatum, Alexander and Scales had been taken into custody in Hardin County on January 10, for the last 13 days. 

Upon Isaacs turning himself in, he confessed to his involvement in the AT&T burglary as well as being the driver of the white Cadillac that evaded Beaumont Police into Hardin County.

BPD Detectives had received information during the course of this investigation that the “7th suspect” was in Houston. 

However, the investigation has now revealed that there were a total of 8 suspects involved in the burglary, the 8th of which is believed to be in Houston. 

After turning himself in and speaking with Detectives last night, Isaacs (pictured below) was placed under arrest for Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and Evading in a Motor Vehicle. 

He was then transported to the Jefferson County Jail. The investigation is on-going.
