AUBURN, Ala (EETV) - On Monday, October 23, 2017 Auburn Police arrested Jeremy French Peters, age 20, from Auburn on three felony warrants charging him with Breaking and Entering of a motor vehicle, Burglary Third Degree, and Theft of Property Second Degree.
On Sunday morning at about 4:00 a.m., an APD Officer conducting a routine security check of a closed convenience store in the 4100 block of Moores Mill Road observed a suspicious individual outside of the business. The Officer contacted the subject, later identified as Jeremy Peters, and placed him under arrest on an unrelated charge of public intoxication.
Further investigation into the incident revealed that Peters was responsible for forcible entering a 2006 GMC Sierra truck, parked at the business and taking property. Police also discovered that Peters had forced entry into a residence in the 3000 block of Lee Road 10 and stole electronic devices, just prior to being contacted at the convenience store. Arrest warrants were obtained and executed while he was incarcerated in the Lee County Jail.
Peters was being held in the Lee County Jail on an $11,500 bond. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are anticipated.
