Burglary suspects arrested
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office was called to 5822 Fort Sumter Drive earlier today on a residential burglary. Deputies were advised by neighbors that two b/m’s were observed at the rear of the residence and then saw them make entry to the screened back porch.
The suspects were confronted by a neighbor, at which time they ran from the area on foot. Deputies stopped one suspect around Stonewall Drive and the second suspect was stopped on Lystra Lane.
Both suspects were charged with Aggravated Burglary and one was also charged with Possession of Burglary Tools. As both parties were juveniles, they were transported to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.
The observant neighbors and quick response of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office resulted in the apprehension of the burglary suspects with no loss to the property owner.
