Four youths face burglary charges after they were caught on video burglarizing a home on Doyle Frazier Road.
The suspects, Andrew Raymundo Vazquez, 20, of Manchester, Daniel Kevin Ferrell, 20, of Murfreesboro, and juveniles Brandon Branch and Justin Lee, both 16, are all charged with burglary and theft, the younger pair facing their charges in Juvenile Court.
The two 20-year-olds also face contributing to the delinquency of minor counts for perpetrating the crimes with the two teens.
The group was arrested Tuesday after lawmen were alerted to a burglary in progress on Doyle Frazier Road in the Morrison area. When sheriff’s investigator Bo Ramsey arrived, he was told by the homeowner he had caught the burglars on surveillance video.
“Upon looking at the video, I was able to identify a Ford Mustang with four male suspects,” said Ramsey, noting he issued a be-on-the-lookout advisory. The all-points bulletin was received by Manchester authorities who soon came upon the suspect vehicle and pulled it over in neighboring Coffee County. It was a short time later, the suspects reportedly admitted to the crime.
“Confessions were obtained from all the suspects,” Ramsey said, noting the youths began cooperating, showing officers where they had hidden stolen items.
Property taken in the burglary where the video was obtained was recovered including items such as a TV, several guns, cameras, and an iPod with a combined price totaling $4,190. It was at that time officers also discovered the youths had hit another house on Doyle Frazier Road, taking tools and cash, the combination totaling $6,550.
