On May 11, 2010 at around 12:20 a.m., Longview Officers were dispatched to the Hidden Hills Apartments at 614 Gilmer Road to assist a victim who stated she was following four suspects who had stolen her, and her neighbor’s,
lawnmowers.


Officers Jeff Timmons and Orlando Smith were already at the Hidden Hills Apartments on an unrelated call, so when dispatchers were able to relay the victim’s description of a gray Mercury Grand Marquis that the suspects had been
driving, they found it quickly in the northeast corner of the complex.
 

Three of the suspects were unloading the stolen lawnmowers from the trunk of the car, when they saw Officers Timmons and Smith approaching and began to run. Other officers responded to assist and all four suspects were apprehended.


Two lawnmowers and a string trimmer were recovered during the incident and released to their owners.
The following suspects were arrested and booked into the Gregg County Jail:
 

Darius Marquis Watters, date of birth 1126-1991, of 614 Gilmer Road Longview was charged with theft (Class B misdemeanor) and evading arrest (Class A misdemeanor).
 

Darren Rydale Brown Jr, date of birth 624-1992, of 306 Young Street Longview, was charged with theft (Class B
misdemeanor) and evading arrest (Class A misdemeanor).
 

Damian Micah Jones, date of birth 2-231991, of 1500 McCann Road Longview was
charged with theft (Class B misdemeanor) and evading arrest (Class A misdemeanor).

Tyler Jamil McCray, date of birth 1-231992, of 123 Magnolia Street Longview,
