Two were arrested on Friday on burglary charges in Bradley County. A response to a burglary-in-progress resulted in the arrest of the two suspects after they had to leave their vehicle and flee on foot.


A 911 call sent deputies to the 900 block of Ladd Springs Road just after 2 a.m. Friday where a dog’s barks woke the homeowner, who found the front door of his home standing open. 


Initially responding deputies found the suspect’s vehicle had been left in the driveway when the homeowner’s grandson arrived and parked behind it.  In the bed of the truck were several items that have been identified as belonging to the homeowner.


Patrol deputies checked the area and a short distance away, Zachery Dwaine Davis, 29, and Walter Leon Grigsby, 46, both of Eagle Park Drive, were taken into custody.  They each face charges of aggravated burglary, two counts of burglary, two counts of auto burglary and one count of theft under $500.


Investigation showed three structures and two vehicles on the property were entered.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...

Roy Exum: Never Disturb The Dead

I’ve got too many things in my life that scare me so I’ve always been real leery of “unnecessary fear.” A guy named Terry wanted to teach me how to catch a live rattlesnake one time but had a tough time telling me what exactly to do with the angry serpent when the time came to let it go. I have the same view of these paranormal societies where otherwise sane people go around looking ... (click for more)
