Two men were arrested Friday afternoon after a southeast Fayette homeowner spotted them taking items from her home, sheriff’s deputies said.
Alan Michael Hudson, 19, and Emmanual Deanda Gunter, 18, both of Jonesboro, fled the home on foot to a nearby wooded area, and the homeowner called 911 to report the crime, officials said.
That set off a search conducted by sheriff’s deputies, K-9 units, the sheriff’s department’s helicopter and members of the Fayetteville Police Department, officials said.
Hudson and Gunter were captured on Antebellum Way near South Jeff Davis Drive and booked in the Fayette County Jail on burglary charges, officials said.
The incident happened at approximately 1:23 p.m., officials said.
