On Friday, at about 10 a.m., patrol deputies were in the process of detaining two suspects from a burglary call on the 5300 block of Breckenwood. A witness saw Tevin Sykes, 19, and a 14-year old juvenile inside of a drainage ditch with three flat screen TV’s.
A further search of the suspects also revealed two bottles of prescription drugs from the same address. Sykes ran from the officers but was apprehended a short time later in the vicinity of the burglary. A short time earlier, a citizen advised officers of a suspicious red Ford Astro speeding from the area. Deputies located and stopped the van at Highway 51 North and Watkins. A search of the van revealed plumbing fixtures and copper from air conditioning units. The driver of the van George Gilliam, 30, had a suspended license and the passenger, Dominik Crowder, 27, had an active warrant for his arrest. Deputies discovered that these two were responsible for another burglary on the 5300 block of Bitter Creek at a vacant residence. The 14-year old juvenile was charged with Aggravated Burglary. Sykes was charged with Aggravated Burglary, Theft of Property and Evading Arrest. Gilliam was charged with Aggravated Burglary, Theft of Property over $500 dollars and Driving with Suspended License. Crowder was charged with Aggravated Burglary and Theft of Property over $500 dollars.
These two burglaries were not related other than occurring at the same time. Uniform Patrol, Traffic, K-9, PCRU and GIB were all involved in the apprehension of all four suspects.
