Police have arrested two men suspected in connection with a rash of burglaries at self-storage facilities in Andalusia, Ala. Eric Glenn Padgett, 46, of Andalusia, and Jeffery Oliver Pate, 47, of Opp, Ala., have been charged with two counts of burglary III, one count of theft of property I and one count of theft of property II. They’re being held at Covington County Jail. Bail hasn’t been set, according to the source.
“We caught Mr. Padgett first on Sept. 11,” said Andalusia Police Department Captain Jamey Wismer. “That led us to information on Pate. It took us a little while to find him, but thanks to the hard work of an Andalusia patrolman, we were able to find Mr. Page in Opp; and with the help of the Opp Police Department and the Covington County Sheriff’s Office, we made an arrest there.”
Page was taken into custody on Nov. 1 after police discovered information about him on Facebook. Padgett had outstanding charges, including failure to appear in a possession case, Wismer said.
