The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division began an investigation into these burglaries and established a pattern of operation by the suspects. Several security videos were obtained and it was determined that the same suspects were involved in all but one of the burglaries.

During the past week, the Investigations Division has conducted “stake outs” in the area of these burglaries to attempt to apprehend the suspects.  In the early morning hours of Thursday September 28th, Investigators observed a rental car pull in behind the Triple T Mini Mart in Section, AL. Investigators and Patrol Deputies confronted the occupants and determined that they were the suspects in some of the previous burglaries.  Evidence was obtained which helped establish the suspect’s involvement.

Both suspects Justin Lamont Erskine age 28 of Huntsville, Alabama and Joshua Lamar Crowell age 26 of Madison, Alabama were arrested and charged with Burglary 3rd degree and Possession of Burglar Tools. Bond has not yet been set and additional charges are anticipated.

These suspects are also suspects in other Burglaries which took place in Scottsboro, AL.  The Scottsboro Police Department provided substantial assistance in this investigation and both agencies shared information their specific investigations.
