FROM STAFF REPORTS

Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies arrested four suspects on May 2 for alleged burglary at a self-storage facility in Chelsea.

At approximately 2:10 a.m., deputies observed three individuals acting suspiciously within the fenced-in area of a local self-storage business in the 14000 block of U.S. 280 in Chelsea.

Deputies observed that all three were wearing ski masks, and one person was carrying a large bolt cutting tool commonly used to cut locks and chains. Deputies entered the fence to identify the individuals only to discover that a number of locks had been cut off of storage units and that at least one vehicle had been broken into. The individuals fled on foot. Additional deputies responded to the business and a perimeter was established while a search of the area was conducted.

Two suspects with ski masks, matching the descriptions of two of the individuals first observed by deputies, were located hiding in woods adjacent to the self-storage business and taken into custody. A cell phone was located with the suspects.

While the area was being searched, deputies observed a vehicle approach the back entrance of the business with a female driver and male passenger crouched down in the passenger seat. The vehicle was stopped a short distance away and both occupants were detained. A cell phone was discovered in the vehicle that established a connection with the two suspects already in custody.
