Proactive work by a patrol deputy landed a couple in jail after they were caught in the act of burglarizing a mini warehouse unit in the 2800 block of Waterlevel Highway in Bradley County. 

As the deputy checked the business around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, he observed a van backed up to one of the units. Seeing the patrol car, the couple attempted to leave. A male passenger got out of the vehicle and attempted to flee, but was apprehended and identified as Edward Allen Pitcock, 43, of Spearfish Lane.

The female driver, Rhonda Pitcock, 41, of 15th Street, was also placed into custody.

The suspects had placed in the van a toolbox containing both power and hand tools and a battery charger. They were later identified by the owner as property that was stored in the unit.  

All of the items were recovered and have a value in excess of $12,000.

Both are charged with burglary and theft over $10,000 with bonds of $35,000 each.
