LAMAR COUNTY, TX-- A manhunt in Lamar County ends with two alleged thieves arrested.

Deputies say it happened just before 6 Monday morning, when 29 year old Christopher Wilson and 38 year old Robert Haller used a stolen truck to steal a trailer from a home, west of Roxton.

The homeowner says he chased the men until they lost the trailer in a field near FM 2675 where they got stuck, then took off on foot.

Deputies say they arrested Wilson at his home.

A canine tracked Haller, who they say was hiding in a creek.

Both were taken to the Lamar County Jail for theft over $1,500.
