32-year-old Randy Clayton was taken into custody for vehicle burglary and theft on March 24th.  Rometha Irving and Tussanee Irving called the police regarding a residential burglary they witnessed on Hamilton Crossing Square. When the officers arrived, they spoke with them and advised that Silas Pegue was visiting at the time. When they looked out the window, they noticed a black male in a black jacket with two different colored shoes, later identified as Clayton, trying to open random car doors. Then, Rometha said he tried to open their front door but did not enter. They both said Clayton was inside Pegue’s Chevy Impala and that Pegue had left to chase after him before the officers arrived. The officers met with Pegue near Ezell-Harding Christian School on Bell Road, and he stated he observed Clayton in his Chevy, taking his black Jordan tennis shoes. He added that when he approached Clayton, he was wearing a black jacket and one of his Jordans, valued at $200. Pegue showed them a white tennis shoe he had left behind. While they were questioning him, he told them he had seen Clayton standing on the corner at the intersection of Bell Road and Rice Road. He was detained and, under Miranda, stated that he did not know where he was and that he only remembered officers approaching him. He later mentioned that Pegue yelled at him before they got there. Officers searched him after the arrest and located three phones, one of which was Pegue’s, which he had not informed them about.
