The Pacific County Sheriff’s have one suspect in custody for a burglary that took place in the Lebam area.
The Sheriff’s Office received a call around 11 yesterday morning that there were two masked individuals burglarizing a home that was occupied at the time and responded to the situation. Pacific County Chief Criminal Deputy Pat Matlock said the suspects had been chased from the scene when they arrived.
The sheriff’s deputies then set up a perimeter and brought in their K9 tracking dog, but they were unable to locate the suspects at that time.
As they were still working on the case the sheriffs received a call at around 6:45 in the evening from a neighbor of the residence saying that someone had come out of the woods and asked to use their phone.
The sheriffs arrived on the scene and were able to indicate that it was one of the suspects from the burglary and take him in to custody. Matlock said that there is still one suspect at large and the case is still on going and pending.
