A Red Boiling Springs husband and wife were arrested earlier this week in connection to two home break-ins.
According to a report filed at the Macon County Sheriff’s Department, Macon County officers were dispatched to Terry Drive where they spoke to a male break-in victim who had just returned home from a camping trip.
While at the scene, it was discovered that windows had been pulled up and screens and door latches were damaged where suspects had gained entry.
Further investigation revealed that four firearms and a laptop computer were stolen from the residence.
Suspects were established by officers during the investigation and Red Boiling Springs Police officers also took a report involving a break-in on Lovelady St., where the victims’s mother lived. During their investigation, RBS officers discovered that the house had been broken into and items were taken.
While at the home, RBS police made contact with the suspects in the case – 31-year-old Lindsay Evans and 34-year-old Rocky Evans – and questioned them.
It was determined that the couple was involved, and that they had sold some of the stolen guns to an individual in Red Boiling Springs. Those guns were later recovered.
A search of the suspects’ vehicle also led to the discovery of another stolen weapon.
The investigation between the RBS Police Department and the Macon County Sheriff’s Department revealed that the suspects were friends with both victims and knew they would be gone on a camping trip at the time of the burglaries.
Rocky Evans was charged with driving under the influence, vandalism (2 counts), aggravated burglary, theft of property (2 counts) and especially aggravated burglary. His bond was set at $12,000
His wife, Lindsay Evans, was charged with theft of property and aggravated burglary. Her bond was set at $2,500.
Both are scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on June 27, 2018.
This case is still under investigation as officers continue to try and recover additional stolen items.
