Fort Worth police said a car burglary victim's surveillance video led them to two suspects in the case.

Mark Maxwell provided police with the surveillance footage after four of his vehicles were broken into Sept. 30. Maxwell also printed out a closeup of one of the burglars and passed out fliers with the photo all over his neighborhood.

Tips generated by the fliers led police to a wooded area where Justin Elliot Davis, 18, and Joel Don Pool, 20, were staying in a tent.

Investigators said they recovered stolen property from all over the neighborhood from the tent.

Police said warrants have been issued for the arrest of Davis and Pool. Investigators said they believe the men are still in the area.

Fort Worth police said it only took them a few days to narrow their search down to Davis and Pool, a process that usually takes months.

Maxwell said he was glad he could help.

"A lot of tips resulted from the flier I put out," he said. "I was literally getting notes on my front door from neighbors who know what's what."
