According to authorities, on Sunday, June 29th 2014, Patrol Deputies with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office responded to Shelton Fireworks, located at 23983 County Road 64, Wilcox, Alabama, to investigate a report of a commercial burglary in progress. The officer discovered five suspects in various stages of the felony act and the suspects fled the area.
A description of the vehicle and direction-of-travel was provided to the responding deputies. Within minutes of receiving the description, a deputy spotted the suspect vehicle and a short vehicle pursuit ensued. The suspect vehicle crashed on Highway 59, near Interstate 10, and the driver of the vehicle fled the scene on foot. The deputy was able to take the remaining four suspects into custody. Hours later, another deputy spotted the driver and took him into custody.
Members of the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Felony Crimes Unit were notified and responded to both scenes. Property stolen from the burglary was located inside of the vehicle the suspects were occupying. A stolen “box” truck (stolen out of the City of Mobile) also used by the suspects was recovered from the parking lot of Shelton Fireworks. Each scene was processed and evidence was recovered from both scenes.
All five suspects were transported to the Baldwin County Sherriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division to be interviewed. All five refused to cooperate and were charged with Burglary in the Third Degree, Receiving Stolen Property in the First Degree, and Possession of Burglar’s Tools. This investigation is ongoing and other charges may be brought forth.
