DAPHNE, Ala, (WKRG) The suspects in custody before most victims even knew there had been a crime. 20-year-old Carmichael Longmire, 19-year-old Michaela Conner and 19-year-old Luki Orozco all from Mobile, now facing charges that include breaking and entering and receiving stolen property after a Daphne police officer caught in the act while on patrol.
“He noticed there were two men inside of a parked vehicle that was in the driveway,” says police spokesman Sgt. Jason Vannoy. “So, he actually drove up on them while they were in the process of going into that victim’s car.”
Olivia Eubanks was one of almost a dozen victims. “We walked out to go to work and noticed the drivers’ side door was slightly open. It wasn’t shut all the way. When we opened the door there were things that were strewn in the front seat and the center console and the glove compartment were open. Obviously, it had been rummaged through.”
Police posted a photo on Facebook, “and the first thing I saw was his wallet and next to it was my sunglass case and there’s your machete and that’s when we first realized what all we had missing,” says Eubanks.
Police say even the car used in the break-ins had been stolen last week. Now, all of the property is in the process of being returned to victims and that includes Eubanks but she says the thieves also took something you can’t see. “When that kind of thing happens, they take your peace of mind and that is what is irreplaceable and that’s what you don’t get back.”
All three of the suspects are no stranger to law enforcement. According to police, two of them currently are out on bond on similar charges in Mobile.
