Witnesses keeping an eye on their neighborhood led to the arrests of two people who have been charged with burglary.

Jeremy Moore, 37, and Twally Henson, 49, were both arrested Thursday, a day after neighbors called police when they saw two people coming out of a home that was not theirs.

“It was reported that on the 27th of December at 2:30 p.m. at the 100 block of Memory Springs Drive,” said Carroll County Sgt. Marc Griffith. “Witnesses called in about a vehicle leaving the residence.”

Griffith said the witnesses saw a male and female leaving the mobile home.

“They called because they knew that no one was supposed to be at that residence,” Griffith said. “The witnesses saw them carrying a TV from the residence.”

Deputies were called, but the vehicle had already left the community.

Residents, however, provided them with a description of the vehicle.

Griffith said deputies located a vehicle the next day that fit the description given by witnesses.

“The vehicle was at a local motel,” Griffith said. “Deputies made contact with the occupants of the vehicle and after questioning they were able to make the connection that they were the same individuals from the day before. Through the process of the investigation they were arrested for the burglary.”

Both Moore and Henson were detained in the Carroll County Jail on charges of first degree burglary. Each was given a $7,500 bond.
