Terrell County--  A sharpshooting Terrell County farmer helped nab five Lee County teenagers accused of trying to rip him off.

18-year-olds Lindsey Purvis and Dean Napolitano along with 17-year-olds Homer Tyson, Ryan Edmond and Davis Payne are all in the Terrell County Jail.

Around 6:30 Saturday morning, Tim McPherson caught them stealing scrap metal and parts from his repair shop on Ben Arthur Road. The teens tried to escape in a pickup truck but McPherson shot out one of their tires.

They jumped out and ran but were all rounded up by state troopers and Terrell and Lee County authorities by 9 a.m. They're all charged with one count of theft by taking.  

Their pickup truck was also confiscated where authorities found equipment from a theft three weeks ago on McPherson's property.

More charges are pending as investigators figure out if they're connected to a series of farm thefts in Terrell and other counties.
