Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Police said a burglary suspect left his cell phone behind.

Mark Watson said he saw two white males inside his vehicle at the Hamilton Pointe Apartments. He said they were trying to steal his car radio.

One was described as 6' and slender with tattoos and the other as 5'10". Both were thought to be in their mid-20s.

A witness said he saw the pair take off running. He said one dropped his phone about 20 feet from the vehicle.

Police examined the phone and said it belongs to Brandon Laymon.

Laymon's state ID was called up, and the witness said that was the man at the car.

Police were looking for Laymon.

Police said nothing was taken.

It appeared someone had used the vehicle for a free night's stay.

The woman said she is new to this country and the incident makes her afraid to go to her car.

He said he had seen an older-model vehicle being driven slowly through the parking lot as if the occupants were scoping out the vehicles parked there.

He said there was a white female driver, a white female passenger and two white male passengers.
