Posted: Updated:

An East Texas man is jailed on burglary charges, and threatening to kill his neighbors.

34-year-old Amos Edward Simmons of Gladewater was arrested by police Thursday, charging him with burglary of a habitation and retaliation.

Investigators say Simmons was caught by neighbors as he burglarized their home, and later threatened to kill them because they reported him to police.

He's being held in the Gregg County Jail on bonds totaling $200-thousand dollars.
