Two people from Crane are facing burglary and drug charges after an alert neighbor allegedly found them burglarizing a vacant house.
Crane police were notified that there was a suspicious vehicle parked in the driveway of 509 West Maud about 8:00 p.m. on April 10th and went to investigate.
Shannon Michelle Chambers, 32, and Michael Joseph Davis, 30, allegedly told Officer Clinton Lee that they had been hired to clean the property belonging to Kathryn Murray. Murray told Lee that no one had permission to be on her property or to remove anything from the house or grounds.
During an execution of a search warrant at the couples home at 210 North Hemphill officers found a dresser, hammock, weed eater and other household items allegedly taken from Murray's property. They also found methamphetamine, marijuana, needles and assorted drug paraphernalia in the search of the couple's home.
Chambers, who has been released from jail, and Davis are due back in court later this month.
