Boxes of bacon stolen; suspects arrested

ANDERSON, Ind. — Police arrested two Anderson men and a juvenile after they reportedly stole three boxes of bacon from a store’s freezer early Sunday morning.

Quincy D. Davis, 18, of the 2900 block of West 22nd Street, Anderson, and DaQuan Marquis Wright, 18, of the 1900 block of West Ninth Street, Anderson, were arrested in connection with charges of Class C felony burglary and Class D felony theft. Davis was also charged with Class D felony resisting law enforcement.

According to an Anderson police probable cause affidavit, police received an alarm at Strong’s Market, 1909 W. Eighth St. When police arrived just after 1 a.m., an officer saw two men standing behind the store and a second walking out of the freezer carrying a box. When the officer activated his lights and sirens the three suspects ran — two dropping boxes as they ran.

Police conducted a search and found two of the suspects and were directed to a home in the 1900 block of West Ninth Street. Inside they found Davis, the man the officer identified walking out of Strong’s with a box of bacon. Davis at first denied involvement in the burglary but eventually admitted to being there claiming he was just holding one of the boxes of bacon, according to the affidavit. He said he never went into the store.

Wright, also found by police, said he only watched the burglary. He said he was just walking home. The other two told police Wright was acting as a lookout walking around the parking lot.

The three men were able to get into Strong’s by prying and pulling open a cooler storage door. A juvenile involved in the incident admitted that they’d intended to steal money, cigarettes and other items. When they realized they couldn’t get into the store from the freezer, the three decided to steal boxes of frozen food, according to the affidavit.

The value of the bacon was about $90.

Wright and Davis were booked into the Madison County Jail while the juvenile was taken to the Madison County Youth Center.
