On 2-16-14 at approximately 8:20 PM the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department received a call in reference to a Burglary in progress. The location of the incident was on Cliff Rd, south of Graceville.

Upon the arrival of the deputy at approximately 8:30 PM, it was discovered that the property owner had a male and female subject detained at gun point. The two suspects were detained until the incident could be investigated further.

During the investigation it was discovered that the property owner had been the victim of a couple of burglaries and a utility trailer had been stolen from the property the week prior. The property owner and another male had concealed their vehicle in one of the barns on the property and hid in another barn in an attempt to catch the thieves.

Shortly after dark, a vehicle pulled onto the property and parked behind one of the barns. Two males exited the vehicle and entered the barn where the property owner was waiting but did not take anything. The two male suspects then went into the barn where the property owner had hidden his vehicle. At this point the property owner and his friend confronted the two males and attempted to hold them for Law Enforcement. One male complied and the other fled on foot into the woods behind the barn. A female was also discovered acting as a look out for the males.

The male and female that had been detained were placed under arrest. The male that fled on foot was tracked by the K-9 teams from Jackson C.I. and A.C.I. until his track was lost on the dirt road, where he most likely was picked up by a vehicle.
