    Family takes a bite out of crime*

    FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) -- A Ben Hill County family fed up with crime took
    matters into their own hands. They tracked down two suspected burglars
    and handcuffed one of them to a fence, and the other to a truck until
    law officers arrived.

    *_The family tells us their hog hunting skills helped them nab the crooks_*.

    Officers first got a call about a suspicious person trying to steal an
    ATV from a home on Old Union Cemetery Road. But by the time officers got
    to the location, the homeowners had already handcuffed the suspect. They
    used dogs and their hunting skills to round them up.

    Normally this area of Ben Hill County is quiet and remote, but
    early Monday morning it was anything but. "We chased him and trailed
    this whole block and checked for footprints and chased him through
    pastures and through the woods until 9:30 or 10:00AM," said Adam Young.

    An entire community of family members and friends even dogs helped track
    down and capture these two men as they were stealing from houses in the
    neighborhood. "With one of the suspects stealing a gun we didn't have
    time to wait they messed with our grandmother so we were gonna find them
    whether they did or not,"said Adam Young.

    Several family members live in the area including Adam Young. He says
    his brother in law called early Sunday morning and had just caught a man
    trying to steal four wheelers out of his shed. "He proceeded to call the
    family and wake everyone up," said Young.

    They called the police but instead of waiting this group of family
    members and friends took it into their own hands to make sure the
    suspect didn't get away.

    By the time the deputies actually got out here the homeowner had
    captured one of the two suspects and had the suspect handcuffed to a fence.

    Deputies took the first suspect back the Sheriff's office for
    questioning but the family continued looking for the other suspect and
    this one took a little more work. "He probably run two-and-a-half miles
    through the woods through the swamp and we finally caught up with him on
    Old Coffee Road," said Young.

    Six hours later, they were able to track down the second suspect.

    "The second one we handcuffed him in Coffee County and leashed him to
    the back of the truck and got him to come back to Ben Hill cCunty where
    we picked him up," said Young.

    Which they also handed off to deputies to take into custody.

    Officers are anticipating several charges, including entering autos,
    burglary, and criminal trespassing. Adam Young says they recovered all
    of the items the men tried to steal, except for one check, which they
    already canceled.

    The men say the handcuffs they used were from hog hunting.

    Ha-ha, looks like he had little choice but to go along for the ride. I'm not sure if i have ever been to Ben Hill cCunty, but it sounds like a very nice place.

    Quack, you've been hangin' around Irv Groat too long. BTW...get that boy on the trap line. He told me that he wanted to try it. Paul does, too. There's a trap club right close to the office there. I bet even Melody would try.

    Handcuffs and Zip ties both come in various lengths which is handy depending on the quarry and procedure to be used....

    Mr Hawkes, I'm fortunate (depending sometimes) to not forget much. What curvy doesn't realize till now but most importantly hasn't experienced yet is the barbaric/cave dwelling/deep in the woods side of me. Projected impressions will eventually subside!
