2 arrested for S. Fayette burglary

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.

....we seriously need a barbed wire fence around Clayton County...keep your thugs to yourself.

Sorry to try and get this story sorted out for you, but it was a young girl's call to 911 when she spotted the suspicious looking men that located them. You gotta get the whole story next time!

I imagine they had the whole story! Most lawbreakers are "found" by civilians but then all of the adjoining county officers, helicopters, dogs, and special forces did the find and capture!

When I was a kid growing up in Kingsport, Tenn., my next-door neighbor, and a few years older than me, was Lonnie Bailey. He was the coolest guy I knew.
