MILAM COUNTY, Texas (KBTX) Two robbery suspects were arrested Thursday in Milam County, KBTX has confirmed.

The Milam County Sheriff's Office says Nathaniel Terry, 26, of Missouri and Kristian Chudje-Buegeler, 32, of Rockdale, are both in custody.

They're both wanted on robbery charges out of Missouri, Milam County Sheriff Chris White said.

Terry was arrested after he showed up at a home at 4:45 a.m. Thursday and told the resident he had a flat tire and needed to use the phone.

He then confessed his identity and the homeowner called 911.

Chudje-Buegeler was later arrested at a home outside Cameron, the Milam County Sheriff's Office said.

White credits the arrests to the teamwork among several law enforcement agencies and "great footwork by deputies."

"Rest easy Milam County, I can assure you that there is an excellent group of men and women on guard and diligently serving you," White said in a post on Facebook.
