2 CHARGED AFTER BURGLARY, CRASH

SAVANNAH, GA. (January 15, 2014): A man and woman have each been arrested after Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police interrupted a burglary in unincorporated Chatham County and followed a getaway car until it crashed Wednesday afternoon.

Arlecha Nycole Dickerson, 19, and Devone Marquell Osborne, 21, both of the 1000 block of Stark Avenue, were arrested after separate foot pursuits following the burglary at a house on the 2100 block of Washington Street, off Skidaway Road.

Dickerson was charged with fleeing to elude police, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, burglary and disorderly conduct. Osborne also was charged with burglary and then was transported to Garden City where Garden City Police Department detectives already had warrants for aggravated assault issued against him.

Dickerson and Osborne were seen leaving the residence about 12:15 p.m. when Islands Precinct Crime Suppression Unit and Patrol officers approached the house on Washington Street. Osborne ran on foot, jumping a fence along the way.

Dickerson drove away in a gray 2006 Honda Accord. It crashed on Jasmine Avenue, slamming into a utility pole that toppled, pulling wires to the ground with it. She was captured about 30 yards away.

An Islands Precinct officer noticed Osborne walking in the Norwood Plaza shopping center and followed him into a courtyard area between two restaurants where he was taken into custody.

Islands Precinct detectives continue to investigate the burglary and examine similarities to other burglaries reported in the area in the past few days.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
