Burglary Suspects Caught Red Handed in Lee

Major David Harper of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office reports that on Saturday night, December 16, 2017, at 6:55 pm, off-duty Madison County Deputy Sheriff Cpl. Edwin McMullen observed a vehicle parked in the ditch on US 90 in Lee with the headlights off. Cpl. McMullen observed the vehicle drive across US 90 and again park in the ditch with the headlights off.  Cpl. McMullen pulled behind the vehicle in his personally owned truck while calling Madison County Communications Center to advise his location and that he would be checking on a suspicious vehicle. Cpl. McMullen made contact with the sole female occupant of the vehicle and identified himself as a Law Enforcement Officer. The female identified herself as Tiffany Langford and told Cpl. McMullen that she was parked in the ditch because she was trying to take photographs of the Fire Truck that was riding Santa around in the community. Cpl. McMullen explained that there had been several burglaries in the area and told Langford to be careful. Cpl. McMullen returned to his truck and departed to a location that he could continue to watch the suspicious vehicle from.

 

After several minutes passed the Cpl. McMullen observed Langford drive back across US 90 with the headlights off onto Demotsis Loop before stopping in the ditch again. As Cpl. McMullen maintained surveillance, Langford pulled into the yard of a residence still keeping the headlights off. At this time Cpl. McMullen requested on-duty deputies to respond to his location as he reproached the vehicle. As Cpl. McMullen pulled in behind Langford he observed a white male (later identified as Michael Scott Martin) run out of the woods to Langford’s vehicle. Cpl. McMullen was able to apprehend Martin and place him in wrist restraints. Martin told the deputy that he and Langford had been arguing so he got out of the vehicle and was just waiting on Langford to return and pick him up. During a pat down of Martin, Cpl. McMullen located several pieces of jewelry and collectable coins along with tools that are commonly used to commit burglaries in Martins’ coat pockets. Deputy Ben Pike and Sgt. Jeff Rosenberg arrived and took over the investigation. The deputies were also able to locate a gold watch in the woods where Martin had ran from. A short time later the home owners arrived and confirmed that their residence had been burglarized. The victims were able to identify all the items that deputies recovered from Martin as belonging to them. Both Michael Scott Martin and Tiffany Danielle Langford-Henderson were arrested and transported to the Madison County Jail. All of the stolen items were returned to the victims.
