Alert neighbors and quick response from police stopped a string of
break-ins on Huntington's South Side. Someone living on 12th Avenue
spotted two men running between houses and call 911. Police moved in, formed a perimeter and chased down Brian Layne, 21 of South Point, and NIck Fisher, 19 of Chesapeake and charged them with several crimes including burglary. Police believe the men took items out of at least two cars and went in to one home while the owners were sleeping. Layne is also a fugitive from justice because of pending charges in Florida. Police say he is accused of using a gun during an assault in Gainsville. Florida police say they do plan to extradite Layne.
Jennifer Strickland is on of the crime victims in this incident. She says Layne and Fisher went through her SUV and took prescription medicine and other items. Jennifer says she always locks her car doors but forgot this time.
