HOUSTON – An officer with the Houston Police Department caught a pair of cell phone store smash-and-grab suspects red-handed early Thursday.

A passing officer spotted two men in the store and pulled into the parking lot. One of the men managed to get away on foot, but the other man was captured at the scene.
