Two people were taken custody by local authorities in connection with breaking into a Tate County residence and stealing several items.
Captain Lisa Sanders from the Tate County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspects as Alex Wells, 45, of Memphis, and Stacey Frazier, 43, of Millington.
Sanders said deputies were dispatched to a home in the 3800 block of Highway 306 regarding a burglary in progress Saturday, April 16, at approximately 10:56 p.m. Deputies confronted a pair of suspects at the residence who fled the scene in a dark colored sport-utility vehicle after refusing commands from law enforcement officials to stop.
Deputies followed the SUV west on Highway 306 before it eventually turned south on Interstate 55, according to Sanders. She said officers from the Senatobia Police Department assisted with the capture of the suspects by deploying stop sticks on I-55 to disable the vehicle.
Sanders said all property taken during the home burglary was recovered including firearms, power tools, a garden tiller and air compressor.
Wells and Frazier were transported to the Tate County Jail where they were both charged with burglary. Wells was also charged with felon in possession of a firearm and detained under a $25,000 bond. Frazier was held under a $5,000 bond. Sanders said additional charges could be forthcoming for both individuals.
A full review of the case remains under investigation by the Tate County Sheriff’s Office. If you have information regarding the burglary, contact Investigator Destin Johnson at 562-4434.
