Burglary Suspects Busted

June 12, 2013

Two more burglary suspects were arrested Tuesday afternoon as an investigation into recent vehicle burglaries continues in the Pensacola area.

Lucas Jenkins, 21, and Tonjas Dixon, 20, both of Pensacola, were arrested around at the Forest Creek Apartments on Patton Drive, according to  Sgt. Kevin Christman.

Dixon was arrested on 21 warrants that included burglary, larceny, fraud, and grand theft vehicle charges. Jenkins was arrested on nine warrants that included burglary, grand theft, fraud and vehicle theft charges.

The Pensacola Police Department made the arrests in conjunction with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, which also is investigating the suspects. Representatives from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms also participated in the investigation.

Jenkins, Dixon and Marcus Johnson are suspects in vehicle burglaries that occurred between early May and June 1 in the Inverness, Cordova Park and Bayview Way areas. The majority of vehicles had been left unlocked.

Johnson, 20, of Pensacola was arrested June 1 on 21 warrants ranging from burglary to fraud, Christman said.

The investigation is continuing as detectives pursue leads on additional suspects.

    waste as little time and money on these two in the judicial process…put them in prison for a long time and be done with it…the public is going to have to bear the financial burden anyway… society is not going to affect free will and criminal intentions not one little bit.
