4 arrests made in burglary, rape

Posted: Updated:
Three Waverly teens are accused of breaking into a home near Auburn's campus, raping a teenage girl, then stealing her car and other belongings.

Police say Lakeith Black, 18, is one of the 3 teens facing felony charges. The other two are 15 and 16-years-old, and considered juveniles.

It happened Monday morning around 1:00 on the 800 block of West Longleaf Drive. The 19-year-old victim told police the teens broke into her home, raped her, then stole some electronics and her car.

Police immediately located the car on Lee Road 12 and arrested the suspects later that day. All three now face Burglary, Theft, Rape, and Sodomy charges.

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014 the Auburn Police arrested a fourth suspect in these crimes. A 16-yer old from Loachapoka was charged with Rape First degree, Sodomy First degree, Burglary First degree and Theft of Property First degree. 

The juvenile was taken into custody by Auburn Detectives at a residence in the 100 block of Lee Road 4 in Loachapoka.  He was transported to the Lee County Detention Facility where he is being held on a $155,000 bond.  The case remains under investigation, although no additional arrests are expected.
