Opelika Couple Follows Burglaries from Neighbor's House

Posted: Updated:
OPELIKA, Ala. -

An observant Opelika couple who noticed burglars fleeing a neighbor's home followed the thieves until authorities arrived.

On July 2, the couple, whose names were not released, were leaving their home on the 1400 block of Lee Road 155 East when they noticed suspicious activity at a neighbor's house, the Lee County Sheriff's Department says in a news release. The couple followed the thieves as they drove from the home.

The couple called 911 as the thieves began to throw a television and other objects from their moving vehicle. The four suspects inside the vehicle fled on foot after a Lee County Sheriff's Deputy was able to intercept the vehicle.

After a short chase, officers arrestedSamson Jermon Logan, 24, of Auburn; Brandon Ledell Hughley, 19, of Opelika; Jacorey Marquald Logan, 21, Opelika; and Jaquavious Jarell Ricks, 19, of Notasulga. All four were arrested and charged with one count of Burglary in the Third Degree and one count of Theft of Property in the Second. All are being held in the Lee County Detention Facility on a $6,000.00 bond each.

Investigators responding to the scene of the burglary on Lee Road 155 discovered the victim's home had been forcibly entered after the front door was kicked in. Several items were stolen including an XBOX 360 game system, 27' flat screen television and a gun safe. All of the property was identified by and returned to the home owner.

This case is still under investigation and if you have any information about this case please call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 1-334-749-5651 or Lee County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-522-7827.
