Bibb homeowner fires gun at suspected burglars, two arrested

Bibb County deputies have arrested two men who allegedly abandoned plans to break into an Ashford Chase Court home after the homeowner fired a gun at them, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

Deputies received a 911 call from the home just after noon on Sunday in which the homeowner reported a burglary was in progress. When the burglars smashed a window the homeowner fired a shot from a pistol at the window, causing the men to run away, according to the release.

Evidence left behind at the house led deputies to a local fast food restaurant where video of the men was discovered.

Investigators were able to identify the robbers as 19-year-old Daunte Franklin of Park Lane Place and 22-year-old Kerrence Thomas of Forest Avenue who were suspects in previous cases, according to the release.

Shortly after 2 p.m. deputies found Franklin and Thomas hiding in a van in a parking lot off Zebulon Road, according to the release.

Franklin and Thomas have been charged with burglary and are being held at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Complex, according to the release.
