Vehicle Burglary Suspects Arrested

On August 11, 2012, at approximately 7:40 p.m., an off duty Polk County Deputy noticed a suspicious vehicle as it was leaving the ballpark at 2125 Edgewood Drive South. He discovered a silver 2006 Nissan Altima had been burglarized next to where the suspicious vehicle had been. The deputy followed the vehicle to the Mid Florida Credit Union at Edgewood Plaza and kept Lakeland Police updated on the location of the suspects.

Following a brief struggle, officers apprehended Shawn Hunter, 34, (B/M, DOB 8/30/77) and then arrested Ebony Lashae Young, 31, (B/F, DOB 8/10/81) for possession of marijuana.

Upon further investigation, the pair were charged with three vehicle burglaries at 2125 Edgewood Drive South and one at 2125 S Road 98.
