Two Alleged Thieves Caught Red Handed, LIVINGSTON, January 16, 2012 - At approximately 12:20 pm on January 16, 2012, a call came in to the Polk County Sheriff's Office to report a possible burglary in progress at a residence off Pridgen road. Before deputies arrived, the vehicle, an older model Chevy S10 drove away from the scene. Deputies and other law enforcement converged on the area.
