Tyreese Lamont-Sinard Lewis, 28, of Anniston, and Chandron Rashard Northard, 27, of Anniston, were charged with second-degree theft, a felony, according to police reports.
Anniston police Capt. Allen George said on Sunday evening police were called to the 2000 block of Cooper Avenue by a 41-year-old man who said his utility trailer was stolen. The trailer was worth $1,000, George said, and nothing of value was inside the trailer when it was taken.
While officers were talking to the victim, George said, a witness approached police and described Lewis and Nothard, as well as the gray Dodge pickup they were driving. During the witness’ conversation with officers, the suspects drove by in a vehicle that matched the description and police pursued, the captain said.
The officers eventually pulled Northard and Lewis over at the intersection of 23rd Street and Walnut Avenue, George said. The stolen utility trailer was no longer attached to the truck, according to George.
George said the trailer was discovered parked in a nearby backyard on Walnut Street that belonged to Lewis’ grandmother. The men were not arrested at the scene, George said. Warrants were issued for both men on Monday. Lewis was charged Wednesday and Northard was charged this morning.
Northard was released from the Anniston City Jail this morning on a $10,000 bond. A court date is scheduled for July 8.
Lewis was in the Calhoun County Jail this morning. Bond is set at $10,000. A court appearance is also scheduled for July 8.
