East Ridge police arrest four in Rent-To-Own burglary

Four suspects wanted by East Ridge police for a burglary at the Rent-To-Own store at 5611 Ringgold Road were arrested Monday.

The suspects, 33-year-old William Crawley, 49-year-old Ricky Phillips, 32-year-old Bessie Eagle and 47-year-old Susan Phillips were arrested at the Knights Inn on Ringgold Road, after police tracked a credit card, which was reportedly stolen, to purchases at area stores.

The card was reportedly used to make purchases at the Family Dollar Store on Ringgold Road. Witnesses there described the suspects, who allegedly used the stolen card, and notified police when the suspects returned later that day.

The stolen card was later found in the trash by police.

Police also reportedly found several items at the four suspects’ hotel room that were connected to the Rent-To-Own burglary.

All four suspects face a theft over $1,000 charge. Police are continuing to investigate.
