MEMPHIS, Tenn. — At least two men are behind bars after allegedly breaking into a neighbor’s home in the Grahamwood area while he was away for dialysis treatment.
The first break-in happened June 4. The victim told police when he returned from the hospital to his home in the 3900 block of North Rossiland Circle, he found the rear bathroom window broken and two pistols and a laptop worth nearly $5,000 missing.
The next week, the man again went for dialysis and came back to find the same rear window open. This time however, the suspects ransacked his home before taking a scale, a drill and a handsaw.
Two days later, the suspects returned, stealing some garden tools.
A neighbor’s security cameras captured two men jumping the homeowner’s fence and another standing as a lookout in the front. Police were able to identify the two men in the back as Christopher Henley and Joe Stanley.
Both men were located just several houses down the street with the man’s stolen items.
The third suspect was not identified, but police said he also lived in the same house with the other suspects.
Henley and Stanley were both charged with burglary, aggravated burglary and theft of property.
