Boaz police said they received a call around 11 a.m. Thursday of someone breaking into vehicles around Boaz Middle School and Boaz High School. Police were looking for the vehicle when they said they received a 911 call from a homeowner on Mcville Road, who said two men were in the home.

One of the suspects, Jonathan Hollis, 32, of Albertville, left the scene in a vehicle that matched one seen during the vehicle burglaries, police said. The other, Shannon Lackey, 30, of Boaz, stole a vehicle from the home, police said.

Meanwhile, Hollis was taken into custody on Kuykendall Road along with Shannon Hyde, 23, and Joann Owens, 21, police said. Police said the two met up with Lackey and Hollis to help them transport some of the stolen items.
