Brothers charged in home invasion
Two Colbert County brothers were arrested on Tuesday after law enforcement officials say they broke into a residence while the homeowner was there asleep.
Jon Adam Fisher, 25, and Christopher Arlin Fisher, 36, both of 701 Cave St. in Tuscumbia, were arrested for second-degree theft of property and second-degree burglary, Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver said.
According to Oliver, sheriff’s deputies received a call about a home invasion at a residence on Franklin 162 off Duncan Creek Road in Russellville.
Oliver said the homeowner stated he was in bed asleep when he heard a noise that woke him up.
When he went to his bedroom door, Oliver said the homeowner confronted the two suspects who fled from the scene.
After getting a description of the vehicle, Oliver said the sheriff’s office put out a BOLO and the brothers were picked up by the Colbert County Sheriff’s Office on Lime Rock Road in Tuscumbia.
Oliver said the brothers were arrested on burglary and theft charges after the homeowner reported a laptop and prescription medication missing.
Both brothers are still in custody at the Franklin County Jail.
