BELTON, Texas (KWTX) Bell County deputies have arrested one of two men caught on camera during a break-in on Feb. 9 at a storage facility at 6000 Sparta Rd. in Belton and are hoping someone recognizes the second.

Robert Andrew Martin, 27, was arrested on March 2 on a warrant charging burglary of a building, authorities said Wednesday.

His name did not appear on the Bell County Jail’s online roster Wednesday.

The second man, who was wearing a trench coat and a cowboy hat, has not been identified.

Investigators are asking anyone who recognizes him to call the Bell County Sheriff’s Department Tip Line at (254) 933-5539.

Surveillance cameras captured images of a dark-colored Mini Cooper with a red roof with a female driver that circled the area for several hours between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 9, authorities said.

The cameras then captured images of the two men as they burglarized the facility, authorities say.

The two men ran after they were spotted by one of the facility’s customers.
