Real life crime in Fort Payne sounds like reel life movie script

Two thefts were solved, two people were handcuffed, and stolen items were recovered during an extremely short time span. It may sound like one of those rushed plots seen in a Hollywood action movie, but it's actually something that happened in real life.

Fort Payne police officers arrested  Jeremy Owen Fossett, 35, and Donald Wade Demarco, 37, and charged them with theft of property.

Investigators say they stole a car from a home near Fort Payne High School and then later stole beer from the Shell Station in Fort Payne.

Video surveillance tape from the store and a fiery piece of evidence helped investigators to connect the crimes, and it only took them four hours to do so.
