Pursuit of burlary suspect continues
A frightened Rutherford County woman crouched in a closet and dialed 911 after she heard two men breaking into her home before noon Wednesday on Asbury Lane.
But a burglar alarm scared the men out of Rashonda Johnson’s house. When they backed out of the driveway, Sheriff’s Deputy James Davis arrived and turned on his blue lights and siren to stop the suspects.
Driver Jeremy Marable, 19, and his 20-year-old brother, Julius, of the Woodlands apartments, ignored Davis who gave pursuit with Deputy Will Lehew.
Davis said Deputies pursued the brothers on Asbury Lane to Medical Center Parkway and John Rice Boulevard where the suspects struck one car. Marable drove back onto John Rice Boulevard and struck a second driver head-on on at the corner of Gresham Lane and John Rice Boulevard. The driver was treated at Middle Medical Center. Highway Patrol is investigating the crashes.
At the crash scene, both brothers fled. Davis nabbed Julius Marable while Cpl. David Foote captured Jeremy Marable about one mile away.
Davis charged Jeremy Marable with aggravated assault of the two drivers struck, theft and felony evading arrest. He charged Julius Marable with evading arrest and theft.
Detective Richard Brinkley charged the brothers with two counts of aggravated burglary after he linked them to a second burglary nearby on Holiday Court.
Patrol Sgt. Mike George found a card with a person’s name at the crash scene and notified dispatchers who located an address. George and Cpl. Tyler Morton drove to Phillip and Holly Davis’ home on Holiday Drive nearby where they found someone broke into the home.
Most of the property stolen from the Davis’ home was linked to the brothers and returned to the couple.
The Marables are being held at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. A hearing is set Jan. 17 in General Sessions Court.
Lt. Philip Martin processed both crime scenes for evidence. The case remains under investigation.
