Phenix City crime: Police arrest 2 burglary suspects

Phenix City police arrested two suspects on Friday suspected of three different home burglaries.

Donte Christopher Carter, 19, and Evan Michael Gaddy, 18, face charges of burglary and possession of marijuana, Capt. Frank Ivey said.

According to Ivey, police responded to a burglary on Redwood Drive around 5:40 p.m. Friday. The officers knew that the suspects were seen leaving in a white Ford Crown Victoria, which appeared similar to a police car.

Officers spotted a vehicle matching that description and performed a traffic stop. They found some of the stolen property with the suspects and took them into custody, Ivey said.
