By  | 

Valdosta, Georgia - August 10, 2012 -

Sheriff Prine stated that on Thursday, August 8 an alert resident who lives on Camellia Drive in Valdosta, Georgia, noticed two unknown individuals acting suspicious in the parking lot of the apartment complex which he lives. The resident continued to watch the persons who soon burglarized an apartment. The resident was able to provide a vehicle description driven by the suspects and a description of the persons which was relayed to the Emergency 9-1-1 Center as the suspects departed the area. Given the description of the vehicle and suspects, a Lowndes County deputy spotted the vehicle and performed a traffic stop near the intersection of U.S. Highway 84 and James Road. The vehicle occupants were detained and later identified by the witness.

During the ongoing investigation, it was confirmed that Latavious Clark and Steven Clark, whom are both from Moultrie, Georgia came to Valdosta and burglarized the residence on Camilla Drive. Most of the victim’s property was recovered during the traffic stop. Both suspects were transported to the Lowndes County Jail where they are currently being held. The suspects will appear in Magistrate Court this afternoon for an arraignment hearing where a bond will be considered.

This investigation is ongoing in attempt to identify other burglaries and recover additional stolen property.

Sheriff Prine stated he is very proud of the assistance which led to the arrest of these persons. “It is this type of citizen cooperation with law enforcement that helps solve crime.” Sheriff Prine asked anyone with information related to this burglary or any other crime, contact the Sheriff’s Office at {229} 671-2950 or the department’s tip line at {229} 671-2985.
