A Colbert man and woman were arrested after they allegedly burglarized a home under construction on Colbert-Danielsville Road and then made their getaway on bicycles.
James Quinton Faucett, 24, and Sara Christine Watters, also 24, both of 1366 Kingston Hollow, were charged with one count each burglary and criminal damage to property in the second degree.
According to the incident report, a witness told 911 that she saw the couple break into the garage of the home and then leave on bicycles with “a bag full of stuff” going toward Colbert.
Deputy Matthew Pilkington reportedly found Watters on Peachtree Street at Fourth Street with a Dollar General bag in her hand containing the stolen items.
Another deputy found Faucett on Peachtree Street.
Both were taken into custody.
In another incident, two metal doors and an angle iron were reportedly stolen from Olen Construction on Black’s Creek Church Road last week.
A complainant at the business reported that he saw a man and woman in a red jeep Cherokee in the driveway of the business with the metal mounted on top of the jeep. When he confronted them and told them to unload the metal, they refused and drove off.
Larry Dwayne Holcomb, 22, and Seidina Jean Scroggs, 25, both of 3332 Blacks Creek Church Road, Commerce, were found and charged with one count each of theft by taking.
