Four men have been arrested in connection with two break-ins at a privately owned hunting lodge off Lowndes County Road 2 off John Hulett Road near Mosses.

Sgt. G. Lashun Hutson, an investigator with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office, said between Sept. 9 and Sept. 14 two crimes occurred at a hunting lodge owned by Ken Brown.

Hutson said the hunting lodge was burglarized and a four-wheeler was stolen between Sept. 9 and 11th.

“I knocked on some doors and talked to some people and rode around and looked,” Hutson said. On Sept. 14th, he said, he received a call about a man riding a four-wheeler. Hutson said he checked, and it was the stolen four-wheeler, which he recovered that day.

He said on the 13th, the same hunting lodge was broken into again. But this time, cameras had been placed at the lodge by the owner at Hutson’s suggestion.

Hutson said three suspects came back and vandalized the trailer there and were caught on camera.

Arrested on Sept. 27 was Lamario Omar Lawrence, 18, of Tyler for theft of property first and burglary third. Arrested on Oct. 4 was Marcus Lashawn Rudolph, 19, of Hayneville arrested for burglary third. And arrested on Oct. 5 were Winfred Logan, 19, of Hayneville for theft of property first and John Edward McCall, 18, of Hayneville for burglary third.

“We would like to ask the community to be on the lookout for suspicious vehicles or individuals in their neighborhoods and to give us a call,” Hutson said. He said callers could remain anonymous.
