Statesboro Police Department arrested two suspects for the theft of several truck batteries that were removed from tractor trucks parked at the Old Stockyard in the area of Stockyard Mini-Storage.

  On Monday around 6:45am Statesboro Police began investigating the theft of the batteries that occurred sometime over the weekend.

   While on scene, APO Travis Kreun discovered additional trucks that appeared to have had the batteries removed.  A total of 12 batteries were discovered to have been stolen.

  Sergeant Larry Kirkland contacted all local recycling centers and advised them to contact Statesboro Police Department if anyone attempted to scrap batteries that matched the description of the ones that were taken from Stockyard.

  At 7:30am Statesboro Police received a call from a local recycling center advising that there were subjects attempting to scrap several vehicle batteries.

  Statesboro Police Corporal Antonio Williams and APO Kreun met with the subjects who were then escorted to the Statesboro Police Department to continue the investigation.

Through further investigation, APO Kreun placed Myron Justin Lanier and Xzavier Juwan Lanier under arrest for the theft of the batteries and other charges.

   Statesboro Police have a warrant for a third suspect, Quentin Lashawn Lanier, who is also wanted for the battery thefts.  Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact APO Travis Kreun at the Statesboro Police Department at (912) 764-9911.
