Three charged in ice company burglary

THOMASVILLE — A nervous driver and passengers during a traffic stop early Wednesday caused a police officer to realize something was amiss.

Thomasville police stopped the vehicle because of a seatbelt violation. The car’s occupants were charged with burglary.

The arrests stemmed from an incident that had occurred shortly before at Prestige Ice Co., 1411 Glenwood Drive.

A Prestige employee was in the ice room bagging ice about 12:15 a.m. when he saw a stranger in the building.

“As he turned to speak to the man, the man fled from the building, exiting through the engine room,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

It was determined there had been an attempt to steal anhydrous ammonia, Hampton added.

Police and the TPD canine unit could not find men who fled into a wooded area.

A short time later, a police officer stopped a vehicle traveling on U.S. 19 South in the city. The nervous driver and passengers were not wearing seatbelts.

The officer who made the traffic stop knew the burglary had just taken place and that men had fled from the scene.

The Prestige employee identified one of the men in the car as the person he had seen in the business.

Suspects charged are Tyler Buford Brown and Carl Deloach, both 25, and of 615 N. Clay St., Quitman, and Jared Hickey, 21, 1002 McKinnon Road, Boston.

The men were released from the Thomas County Jail on bond.
