Clintonville Neighbor Helps Police Catch Burglary Suspects


UPDATED: Friday May 3, 2013 10:28 PM

Police arrested two suspected burglars on Thursday, thanks to a neighbor who noticed something just wasn't right.  
 
Jared Austin Murray, 31, and Bryan Thomas Marcum, 30, are both charged with felony burglary.
 
The two are accused of breaking into a Clintonville home and stealing thousands of dollars in merchandise.

The homeowner, Jeremy Johnson, said he and his family were not home at the time, but a neighbor who happened to be driving by noticed a suspicious truck parked in Johnson's driveway.

The neighbor saw the men loading items into the truck, and he called police.

The neighbor told 10TV he then followed the truck until police were able to stop it on North Broadway Street.

Police arrested the men after a brief chase.

Johnson said all of his belongings were still in the back of the truck.

"I was able to get all my stuff back," he said. "So I was happy about that."

Police said Friday that the two men could be responsible for other break-ins, but they just can't prove it yet.
