Three charged with burlary

Three Troy men were arrested Monday and charged with third-degree burglary in connection when police reportedly caught them in the process of burglarizing a residence on Corley Street.

Deon Tyrell Nobles, 18, Jamarius Cachief Jones, 19, and Ladarrius Devon Stewart, 20, were arrested on the scene of the crime shortly after officers arrived at the residence at approximately 11:30 a.m. Monday.

“As officers arrived on the scene and set up a perimeter, they saw Jones coming out of a window at the rear of the residence,” said Troy Police Chief Randall Barr. “When Jones saw the police, he ducked back into the apartment. Officers attempted to persuade Jones to come out of the residence, but he did not initially comply.”

Barr said that officers discovered two more people were inside the apartment while negotiating with Jones.

“Jones eventually came out and was taken into custody but Nobles and Stewart refused to come out,” Barr said. “Officers entered the residence and found Nobles hiding under a couch and Stewart was found hiding in the ceiling.”

Nobles, Jones and Stewart were processed through the Troy City Jail and incarcerated in the Pike County Jail and charged with third-degree burglary degree on a $5,000 bond each. Nobles and Jones are still in custody and Stewart was released on bond.

Third-degree burglary is a Class C Felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
