Thursday, September 26, 2019 at approximately 12:30PM Lumberton Sergeant Michael Strange responded to the Antique Mall on FM421 for a suspicious male and female in the parking lot. Strange ran a search on the two persons in the vehicle from the Livingston area and learned the male had numerous misdemeanor and felony warrants, the female also had warrants including evading arrests from Law Enforcement. Strange called for assistance and waited for Officer Tanner Hawthorne to arrive before taking the suspects in custody.
