A Davis Curbow Road residence was struck by burglars who got away with a number of items; however, a good description of the suspects led to the arrest of two people. The burglary occurred earlier this week.
The suspects were identified as Shane Edward Rogers, 35, and Shannon Marie Burchfield, 26, both of Old Fort. They were charged with aggravated burglary and theft over $1,000, according to Bob Gault of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.
According to a report filed by deputy Robert O’Daniel of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, he spoke with David Joseph Skelton who said he came home Monday and found damage to a door.
Once inside his home, Skelton noticed several items missing including jewelry, a computer and medications.
After checking with neighbors, O’Daniel discovered a possible suspect vehicle had been observed in the driveway at the Skelton home.
Damage and loss was listed at over $2,000.
Investigation has been turned over to the Criminal Investigations Division.
Deputy Darren Miller saw the suspect’s vehicle Wednesday and performed a traffic stop.
Investigation revealed a number of items inside the vehicle which had reportedly been taken during the burglary.
“Bonds are set at $50,000. They (Rogers and Burchfield) are scheduled to return to court on April 19,” Gault said.
- Cash was reportedly stolen from a vehicle while it was parked at the victim’s home.
Breonna Taylor Vandergriff told Deputy Kevin Chastain someone broke into her car and took approximately $300 from her wallet. The theft reportedly occurred sometime Tuesday evening.
- BCSO Criminal Investigations Division detectives are looking into an early morning burglary which was reported just after 4 this morning.
According to reports, employees arrived for work and discovered someone had entered Hardee’s on Spring Place Road sometime during the night or early morning hours.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Drivers License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Polk County beginning this weekend.
The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county.
According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the drivers license laws of the state.
All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
