TROUP COUNTY, GA (WTVM) – Two burglary suspects are on the loose in Troup County and police need your help finding them.

A quiet neighborhood in LaGrange was interrupted on April 10th by burglars.

Police say a home located near the 100 block of Avery Lane was broken into by Jasmine Charleen Willis and Nicholas Deon Thrash.

Both were seen leaving that home with several items. Police say they stole and placed them in a parked truck they sped away in.

"Witnesses said that they saw two people backed into a driveway in a silver Nissan, late model 1990's model or a Toyota 4-Runner, backed up to the house or the residence and attempting to gain entry into the house by force," says Sgt. Chad Mann with Troup County Sheriff Department.

Those witnesses helped police locate that vehicle and pull over the suspects but the stop didn't go as police planned.

Sgt. Mann says, "They pulled them over and attempted to talk to the driver who was a female, and while she was speaking with police the occupant who was a passenger in the car at the time jumped over into the driver's seat and took off and hasn't been seen since."

Willis was taken to the Troup County Sheriff's office and questioned.  Police say she gave several conflicting stories that were later proven to be lies.

And now a warrant has been issued for her arrest for giving false information to police.  

"If someone had been at home during that crime who knows what they would have done," says Sgt. Mann.

News Leader 9 has learned that 28-year-old Nicholas Thrash is also wanted for aggravated assault. 

If you have any information that can help police capture these suspects call Troup County crime stoppers at (706) 812-1000.
