On the 26th of July 2014 at approximately 5:40 AM, Big Spring Police Department Sergeant Chris Mahurin was patrolling businesses on the east side of town. Sgt. Mahurin observed movement in the area of Lee’s Rental Storage units located at 1606 E. FM 700 which led Sgt. Mahurin to further investigate. When Sgt. Mahurin approached the business 2 subjects ran across E. FM 700 both carrying their loot. Sgt. Mahurin gave chase observing the subjects drop some of their stolen property. Sgt. Mahurin lost sight of the individuals around the 1800 block of Virginia. A perimeter was set up when Big Spring Police Department Officers arrived on scene. Officers then searched the area on foot finding both Dennis Richardson W/M DOB 9/4/84 and Kody Jackson W/M DOB 11/1/85 hiding. It was found that both Richardson and Jackson had burglarized one of the storage buildings at 1606 E. FM 700. Recovered from the Burglary was approximately $300.00 of miscellaneous household items. Both Richardson and Jackson were charged with Burglary of a Building and Criminal Trespass.
