Two arrested in connection to burglary


Two arrests have been made in connection to a reported theft/burglary at 654 Jim Goodson Road.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, deputies first responded to that location at approximately 5:44 a.m. Nov. 17. Upon their arrival, they spoke with the property owner and located a large U-Haul truck that was stuck in the property’s soft ground.

The property owner reported several items missing including trailer hitches, hoses and sprayers.

The suspects also allegedly attempted to remove an all-terrain vehicle.

The Sheriff’s Office impounded the U-Haul for processing.

Deputies were dispatched to that location a second time on the afternoon of Nov. 18.

The homeowner reported the suspects had returned and he stated he was holding them at gunpoint.

Two suspects were taken into custody, but the homeowner advised two additional suspects had fled the scene.

Authorities say one of the two fleeing suspects was identified as Bobby Darrell Nicholson.

Arrested Nov. 18 were Chase Elwood Murdock and Tammy Rae McDuffie. Both have been charged with theft by receiving stolen property and are currently being held in the Spalding County Jail.

No bond has been set.

This investigation is active and ongoing, and additional arrests are expected.
