A second person has been arrested in a home invasion at a residence at the Laurel Cove subdivision in Hixson last Friday.
 
On Wednesday night, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (FAST), with the assistance of law enforcement personnel from the Red Bank Police Department, apprehended Jordan Landon Roberts in the 100 block of Ppoole Street in Red Bank.

Roberts was charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary by the Chattanooga Police Department from an incident which occurred on Summerwood Trail.
 Roberts' co-defendant, Kevin Durrence
, was arrested by Chattanooga Police on the day of the incident.

The homeowner at a residence on Summerwood Trail said an unknown white male wearing all black entered his home through an unlocked front door.

He said the man held him at gunpoint with a semi-automatic pistol.

The robber proceeded to steal a gun range bag containing two rifles and two pistols. One of the pistols was a 45 caliber.

The victim said as the man left he gave chase and spotted a gray VW Jetta leaving his residence. He said he got a look at the driver. He was described as a white male with light skin tone and a thin black beard.

Police said Durrence matched that description. The victim picked him out of a photo lineup.

Police said nearby video showed two men in the VW Jetta as it entered the subdivision.

A search of the trunk of the vehicle turned up some 45 ammunition. Durrence said it was not his.

He said his friend, Landon Roberts, was driving his vehicle earlier that morning.
