Two men were arrested Saturday morning after a police officer spotted a vehicle he recognized as one that had fled from several car burglaries.

According to an affidavit, the Metro officer spotted the GMC Yukon on 26th Avenue North near Dowlan Street just after 5 a.m.

The officer reported he recognized the car because it had fled the area of Ponder Place two hours prior after reports of car burglaries came in.

He also found that the Yukon was reported stolen Friday.

After following the SUV and initiating a traffic stop on Briley Parkway, police say two suspects jumped out of the car and began running.

With the help of a K9, the suspects were located behind a residence on Doverside Drive.

They were identified as 22-year-old Rosevelt Pitts and 20-year-old Jamaine Crowell.

During the course of the investigation Saturday morning, police received two phone calls from diferent people reporting items stolen from their car.

Those items were reportedly found inside the Yukon.

Both Pitts and Crowell currently face two counts of burglary of a motor vehicle, theft, and evading arrest.

Pitts, whose bond was set at $65,000, was also charged with resisting arrest and Crowell, whose bond was set at $60,000, was also charged with driving on a revoked license.
