Four hours after a man entered a home Thursday on North Donahue Drive in Auburn, Ala., tied up a woman who lived there and stole her car, authorities arrested a suspect at a home in Tuskegee.
The Auburn Police Division, Macon County Sheriff’s Office and Tuskegee police arrested Raymond T. Cox at 9:46 a.m. and recovered a 2007 Dodge Caliber that was taken from the Donahue Drive home. Cox will be charged with burglary second degree, theft of property first degree, unlawful imprisonment, criminal surveillance and failure to appear. He may face additional charges as the investigation continues.
Auburn police officers were called to a burglary in the 900 block of Donahue Drive at 5:30 a.m. A woman said a man entered her home, tied her up and demanded cash. The intruder also took the keys to her vehicle and fled.
Cox was developed as a suspect based on Cox’s description and the manner in which the crime occurred. Auburn police, the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force and Tuskegee police already were seeking Cox as a suspect on charges in Tuskegee and at least two burglaries in Auburn.
He was a suspect in a burglary and sexual abuse April 25 in the 1300 block of Commerce Drive and an April 30 burglary at a residence in the 800 block of Lunsford Drive.----
