Two people with active warrants in Alabama were arrested in Summerville this week after they were accused of entering an automobile to commit theft and later stealing a bag of potato chips at a supermarket.
Summerville Police say that they received a call and responded to the Circle K gas station on Highway 114 about a couple stealing a laptop and a backpack from an automobile in the parking lot. Video footage was given to police by the store manager that showed the couple entering the car and took the items. Police shared images of the two suspects with other law enforcement officers in an attempt to identify the couple.
The following day, an off-duty Chattooga County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted the couple coming out of Ingles Supermarket and called Summerville Police. Police detained the couple, who admitted to stealing a bag of potato chips from Ingles. When police ran the couple’s information, the woman had a warrant out of DeKalb County, Alabama and the man had warrants in Cherokee County, Alabama and Henry County, Georgia. The man was also a former Alabama Department of Corrections Inmate.
Police arrested twenty-seven-year-old Tiffany Renee Evans and twenty-seven-year-old Steven Brett Sutton and booked them into the Chattooga County Jail on theft charges.
