Chase ends in arrest of burglary suspect


Police responding to a residential burglar alarm just after midnight Friday got an assist from a Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputy who stopped the suspect’s vehicle and found items reportedly stolen in another burglary.

Davin Kelly, 19, was reportedly driving the car when it fled from police in the 2500 block of Orlando Street, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Monday for Kelly.

Detective Charles Harrison reported that when officers and the deputy got the vehicle stopped, Kelly and another person fled on foot, but were apprehended.

Police checked the house in the 2500 block of Orlando Street where the burglary reportedly occurred, then were called to a house in the 2900 block of Orlando Street where they found a rear door kicked in.

Harrison reported the victim told officers an X-box and fishing poles were taken, and those items were found in the car Kelly had been driving when it was stopped by police.

Kizer said Kelly is currently on probation after being convicted of five counts of breaking or entering.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 cash only bond for Kelly after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with residential burglary.

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent Kelly and told him to come back to court May 14.
