MIDLAND - A man who just got out of the hospital after being shot at his Midland business is now behind bars in the Tall City.

DEA officials along with the Midland Police Department's SWAT team and U.S. Marshals, broke down the door of a home on Bentwood Street to arrest Robert Yorkman and his cousin Isaac on Wednesday.

When they went in, authorities found drugs, weapons, money, and they even seized a few cars.

When the SWAT team served the warrant, they had to shoot and kill one of the two pitbulls that came at them.

Authorities say they've had their eye on the Yorkman's for a while.

You may remember, Yorkman was the victim in a shooting last week at his detail shop in Midland, but officials say the bust was not related to the shooting.

The shooter in that case is still on the run and Midland Police are continuing that search and investigation.
