Police: Burglars caught in the act

Posted: Updated:

Florence police say two unsuccessful burglars were jailed after being caught in the act early Tuesday morning.

Officers arrested Shaun Quentin Sanderson, 31, and Keith Lamar Kelley, 43, both of Florence, just before 3 a.m.

According to police, an officer watched the pair attempt to burglarize Fred's Super Dollar on Florence Boulevard. The two were unsuccessful at breaking into the business, so they turned their attention to a soft drink machine in front of the building, according to the report.

As the men were vandalizing the machine, officers confronted them. The pair fled the scene in a vehicle and officers gave chase.

Both Kelly and Sanderson were booked into the Lauderdale County Detention Center, charged with attempted burglary, criminal mischief, possession of burglary tools, and attempting to elude. More charges are pending.
