ROCKWALL (CBSDFW.COM) — Rockwall police say media coverage has led to the identification and arrest of two men suspected of robbing a jewelry store in the city on Tuesday.
United States Marshals Service officials and Texas Rangers found 31-year-old James Glen Wallace and 20-year-old Clayton Michael Duckworth in Dallas on Friday, Rockwall police said. The two were arrested for robbery and theft and eventually transferred to Rockwall County Jail.
Police said earlier this week two men went into a Zales Jewlery Store just after 1 p.m. Tuesday and started looking around. One of the men left the store, and a few minutes later the other man jumped over a counter and hit a female employee before leaving with some jewelry.
Police had also said those men matched the description of suspects in a similar jewelry theft that happened Monday in Sherman.
“The Rockwall Police Department would like to thank the public and local news media outlets for their assistance,” Rockwall police said in a statement Saturday, “as well as the Sherman Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, the United States Marshals Service and the Texas Rangers for their assistance in identifying and capturing both suspects in this case.”
