County deputies located a suspect who fled a burglary scene in the Gift community, and two have been charged in the case.
James Tyler Young, 26, was taken into custody on Friday at a residence near Union Center, a day after the burglary occurred, said Sheriff Ben Caldwell. Young is charged with burglary and, in connection with a previous incident, felony fleeing.
The department received information on Young’s whereabouts, leading to his arrest.
The sheriff’s department also charged Charles John “C.J.” Bray, 31, of Corinth, with burglary.
A third individual, Chasity N. Alley of Guys, Tenn., who was initially identified as a suspect in the burglary, has since been released. Caldwell said the investigation found that she did not take part in the burglary, although she was with the two men.
The burglary happened about 2:15 p.m. last Thursday on County Road 753. A neighbor arrived home, startling the suspects. As they attempted to leave the scene, their vehicle became stuck, and two males and a female fled on foot. With the assistance of the public, Bray and Alley were found in the area a few hours later.
The responding deputies found that individuals had broken into the home and loaded items into the vehicle.
