East Ridge Police Make Arrests In Multiple Burglaries

Monday, September 09, 2013

Two men are in custody, after East Ridge Police responded to room 132 at Superior Creek Lodge on Sunday, at about 11:30 a.m. in reference to an anonymous tip regarding two men with East Ridge City Court warrants. 

Police made contact at that location, with Joseph Freeman, 25, of 5700 Roper Street in East Ridge, and Jonathan Graham, 26, of 1410 N. Mack Smith Road in East Ridge. Each was arrested for outstanding warrants on charges of failure to appear. 

While on the scene, police observed lawnmowers, weed trimmers, hedge clippers, electric wheelchair, and other like items.

Several hours later, two burglaries were reported in which the victims provided lists of stolen items that matched all of the items earlier observed in room 132 at Superior Creek Lodge. Police returned to that location and spoke with the resident, Jonathan Graham’s grandmother. She gave consent to search the room. At that time the stolen items were still visible from the sliding glass door to the rear of the room. Police were told by the resident that Graham had brought the items to the apartment the previous night. Freeman and Graham were then each charged additionally with burglary.

The victims of the two burglaries arrived, and their property was released to them.

There is no further information available at this time.
