Deputies arrested two suspects on Wednesday after authorities say the two were chased out of a Starnes Farm home by the resident.
According to a Sheriff’s Office report, Kristy Starr Beck, 31, and Clayton Travis Brown, 25, were found and charged after deputies responded to a “burglary in progress” at 610 Starnes Farm Road.
The report said Jeremy Stoner, who lives at the home, heard a thump and then heard a door slam. Stoner saw a woman with brown hair was fleeing the home and a man in blue jeans and a black shirt was running to the woods line. The report, which was filed at noon, did not indicate if Stoner had just arrived at the home or was in the house during the break-in.
Stoner told police he chased the man into the woods and found stolen guns and jewelry thrown on the ground.
Deputies brought in a K-9 unit to search the woods and followed a trail along a creek bed. Footprints were found near the creek in the woods, the report said.
Deputies took Brown into custody after finding him walking down nearby Bringle Ferry Road.
Officers noted that his boots matched the footprints left in the woods and Brown was later identified by Stoner at the residence at about 4:15 p.m.
While officers searched for Brown, Deputy Matthew Causey went to a nearby neighbor’s house to speak with Beck.
The report said deputies were familiar with Beck, who fit the description of the person involved.
Causey reported that she was leaving the residence when he arrived. Shortly after that she was identified as the other party involved, the report said.
Beck and Brown were both charged with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny of a firearm and felony larceny. Brown was also charged with misdemeanor injury to real property.
Brown was given a $25,000 bond. Beck was given a $20,000 bond. Both were in jail on Thursday.
