Two charged in burglary casePublished 4:02pm Thursday, July 10, 2014
Two people have been arrested in connection with a burglary on Antioch Road in Somerville last month.
Vince Edward Bramlett, 41, of Somerville was charged with burglary in the third degree. He was released on a $2,500 bond.
James Nathan Terry, 40, of Somerville was charged with burglary in the third degree. He was arrested June 20 and was still in the Morgan County Jail at the time the burglary charge was added.
He is also facing charges of unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine being held in the Morgan County Jail on bonds totaling $302,500.
Sheriff Ana Franklin said the two were linked with a June 16 burglary on Antioch Road in the Somerville community.
The homeowner reported the burglary after returning home and discovering that forced entry had been made into the residence and an outbuilding. Numerous items had been taken from both structures.
The losses, which included a home security system, totaled almost $3,000. A game camera set up nearby did capture two images of one of the suspects, although the images alone were not clear enough for positive identification.
The criminal investigation division was able to develop Terry as a suspect. He also found outstanding an outstanding felony warrant from Cullman County for the arrest of Terry on a drug possession charge.
On June 20, Sgt. John Dickson and deputy sheriff Tony Vest went to the residence of a known associate of Terry. Terry was at the residence and tried to escape through a back door, where he was stopped by Vest. A subsequent search of Terry revealed a quantity of what appeared to be methamphetamine.
Narcotics agents were contacted and responded to the scene. He was jailed on their charges.
Subsequent investigation led to enough link Terry with the Antioch Road burglary on June 30.
Investigators were also able to identify and arrest Vince Edward Bramlett, 41, of Somerville as another suspect in the burglary on Antioch Road. Bramlett turned himself in to the Morgan County Jail on July 10.
A Dell laptop computer and a Craftsman lawnmower were recovered by the investigator and returned to the owner.
