Tyler Police officials tell KETK, a man is behind bars after being caught stealing from a van on Wednesday morning.

Police say Terrence Cuba, 26, was found burglarizing the vehicle near Preferred Home Medial on 805 North Glenwood Ave. in Tyler just before noon.

The owner of Preferred Home Medical, Richard Savage, saw Cuba breaking into the van to steal it's GPS unit and approached him.
