Man returns home to find burglars, two arrested


Two men were arrested after a man returned home from the grocery store and found the men with his possessions in hand and their truck parked in his driveway.

According to a report by Chief Deputy Jeff Neal, Sean Reynolds who lives in the 400 block of Clara Sorsby Road left his house to go to the store. When Mr. Reynolds returned home, he noticed a Chevrolet truck backed up to his garage that he did not recognize. As he got closer to his driveway, he noticed a white male and a black male that he did not know standing by this truck.

When Sean Reynolds got close to the men, he saw they had his belongings in hand. The white male had in his possession, Mr. Reynolds leaf blower.

It was at this time that Mr. Reynolds also noticed that his garage door was halfway up. Once he realized these men were burglars, he confronted the white male who sat the leaf blower down and told him that someone told him he could come borrow it.

According to police records, Mr. Reynolds informed the two males that he was calling the police, at which time the white male begged him not to make the call and the two males got in the truck to leave. The white male stopped the truck once more in a last desperate attempt to get Mr. Reynolds not to call the police before leaving the area.

As they left the property in a hurry, Mr. Reynolds was able to take a photograph of this truck and its license plate before the suspects were out of sight.

Deputy Nick Moses who responded to this call was able to locate the suspect vehicle down a cleared powerline off of Clear Springs Road. As he approached this truck the black male took off running on foot.

Deputy Moses arrested the white male who was identified as William Jason Alison, 34, of Nash, Texas.

Moments later, deputies along with the assistance of the Nash Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety set up a perimeter around where the black male suspect was last observed. The canine unit from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Telford Unit was then requested to search the area.

The black male suspect was located during this search and taken into custody. He was found to be Bobby Ray Turner, 44, of Texarkana, Texas.

Both Alison and Turner were transported to the Bi-State Jail where they were booked in for burglary of a habitation.

According to authorities, additional property stolen from Mr. Reynolds home was located in the truck the suspects were driving. This property was recovered and returned to its rightful owner.
