Burglary attempt in Apple Tree. A homeowner received a call at work on Monday evening, April 9, from their neighbor who said their alarm was going off. A white male had been spotted coming from the backyard through the trees and another neighbor was chasing the suspect down the street on foot. (NOTE: It is NOT advised to try to catch a suspect yourself...just get all the details you can, like license plate, description, photo, and call 9-1-1). A getaway vehicle rushed down the street for the suspect to jump in. Another neighbor driving into the area saw what was going on and followed the suspects by car and called 9-1-1. The homeowner's glass on the back door behind the house was smashed, causing the alarm to sound. It is unknown if anything was taken.
Deputies caught at least one suspect, who it is said, lives in the area and is well known to police.
