BILLINGSLEY, AL (WSFA) - The Autauga County Sheriff's Office says they have arrested one Montgomery man and charged a second man in connection with a burglary spree in Chilton, Bullock and Autauga counties that led to a large scale manhunt in Billingsley.
On Wednesday, October 3, an off-duty Autauga County Sheriff's Deputy noticed a suspicious vehicle, a white Chevrolet 3500 pick-up truck at the U.S. Hwy. 82 Country Mart in Billingsley. The vehicle was possibly connected to several residences in Billingsley that had recently been burglarized - three men were inside the truck at the time.
The deputy approached the vehicle and noticed a large number of firearms and personal property in the truck and identified himself as a law enforcement official. A short struggle ensued and the three suspects fled the area on foot.
