SAVANNAH, GA ( November 10, 2011) Three people are in custody after a burglary leads police to them.
Wednesday night several weapons were taken in a burglary in the West Chatham Precinct. This morning the Crime Suppression Unit was in a wooded area near the burglarized home when they began to see discarded items from the burglary. They observed several subjects walking in the woods. The officers decided to take cover and watch.
Within minutes the subjects took off running with officers pursuing them. One juvenile was taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit. The foot chase led officers to the 800 Block of Quacco Road, the Regency Trailer Park.
SCMPD’s SWAT, K-9 and hostage negotiators responded to the scene and a perimeter was established.
One juvenile approached officers from outside the house and turned himself in. A third subject, Brandon HUNT, 25, was believed to be in a house and refused to come out. HUNT had an active robbery warrant out of Florida.
HUNT refused to come out for several hours. Just before 2:30 p.m., he came out of the house and was taken into custody without further incident. The juveniles are being charged with several charges to include, burglary, obstruction by fleeing and possession of marijuana. The local charges against HUNT are still pending.
