Brownwood police arrested two suspects Wednesday night after a witness followed them from the site of a car burglary and reported their location as officers were en route.
Issac Kennedy, 20, and Joseph Burns, 18, both of Brownwood, were booked into the Brown County Jail on charges of burglary of a vehicle, Brown County Jail records state.
Officer James Elliott was dispatched to the area of Belmeade and Avenue K at 7:14 p.m. on a report of a vehicle burglary in the 2100 block of Southside. Elliott stopped to speak with two males walking on Avenue K who matched the suspects’ description, Elliott’s report states.
A woman arrived and identified one of the males as the person who had entered her 2004 Chevrolet Malibu and the other male as the person who was with him. She heard one tell the other to get away from the car and say “don’t do it,” Elliott’s report states.
She yelled at the male who had entered her car, and they ran off.
One of the suspects denied entering the car, and the other suspect said he had no knowledge of the incident, Elliott’s report states.
One of the pair had a backpack, and he told Elliott he was worried because there was beer in the backpack and he was on probation. He gave Elliott consent to search the backpack, and Elliott found items including a debit card and GPS unit that had been taken in a car burglary in the 1800 block of Slayden, Elliott’s report states.
