Two arrested in home invasion case

The Stephens County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a home invasion that occurred Monday morning.

Deputies were dispatched to 359 Sweetgum Rd in Eastanollee, at 2:00 a.m., after multiple subjects had kicked in the back door of the residence and entered the home, one of the subjects was brandishing a firearm.

According to the victims the suspects ordered them to back away from them and then for unknown reasons abruptly fled on foot.

Deputies noted that the back door of the residence had been broken in and that there was a footprint clearly visible on the door.

At around 6:00 a.m. on the same morning, deputies again received a call to the same residence on Sweetgum in reference to the suspects returning and taking some items from inside the home.

Responding deputies learned that several individuals had come back to the residence and that one had entered while the others stood by out front.

The person who entered demanded items from inside the home from the victim’s.

After these items were given to this individual all suspects again fled on foot.

An additional responding deputy began checking the area around the victim’s home and located a male subject later identified as Harley David Williams age 22 of Eastanollee coming out of the Woodline behind the residence.

During the course of the investigation Investigators were able to link Williams to both incidents based on testimonial and physical evidence located on scene.

Investigators were also able to link a residence on Defoor road to several of the suspects and based off of their information were able to obtain a search warrant for 1520 Defoor road.

As a result of additional evidence investigators were able to obtain arrest warrants for Brandon Isaiah Sparks age 18 of Eastanollee.

Sparks was picked up later the same date at 1520 Defoor road by Investigators.

Both Williams and Sparks were transported to Stephens County jail.

They are charged with 2 Counts each of Burglary 1st degree, Aggravated Assault, Robbery, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony.

Both are being held pending a bond hearing before a Superior Court Judge.
