Two Men Charged in Vehicle Burglary, LIVINGSTON, January 7, 2010 - On December 29, 2009, the Polk County Sheriff's Office received a call in reference to suspicious activity at 325 Carol Crest in Memorial Point subdivision. Deputy David Ramsey was dispatched to the residence and spoke with the complainant who said that he observed a white male burglarizing his vehicle which was parked in the driveway. The complainant went back into his house and retrieved a firearm and commanded the suspect to get out of his vehicle. The suspect complied with his command and backed away, then jumped into a maroon S.U.V. and fled. The complainant was able to write down the license plate number of the SUV.
Deputy Ramsey and the complainant checked the burglarized vehicle and noted that there was in fact missing property including cash. Deputy Ramsey ran the license plate number and ascertained that the owner of the SUV lived in Mangum Estates.

Both suspects were detained by Ramsey and transported to the Sheriff's Office where they were interviewed by Deputies. During the interview, Deputies learned that they had also burglarized another vehicle at a residence in the vicinity of Beacon Bay. Deputies located the vehicle in Beacon Bay and discovered that there had been some tools that were taken. At time of press, none of the stolen property has been recovered. Both suspects were arrested and charged with burglary of a motor vehicle.
