STERRETT, AL (WBRC) – The Shelby County Sheriff's Department says they have taken two suspects into custody after they led deputies on a short chase.
Around 2:00 a.m. on December 17th, deputies responded to a suspicious persons call in the 2200 block of Forest Lakes Lane in Sterrett. When the deputies arrived, they noticed a suspicious vehicle leaving the neighborhood. An attempt to stop the car began a police chase that ended in Dunnavant near Highway 25 and Tunnel Road when the suspects fled on foot.
Deputies found the vehicle to have been stolen on December 15th. The suspects were taken into custody later by Leeds police officers.
22-year-old Paul Gilbert Hinkle, Jr. was charged with four counts of unlawful breaking and entering a vehicle and one count of 1st degree receiving stolen property. 22-year-old Collin Christopher O'Neal was arrested on an outstanding probation violation with pending warrants for unlawful breaking and entering and 1st degree receiving stolen property.
Both suspects are being held in the Shelby County Jail.
