Auburn man arrested for stealing weapons during burglary

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) – Auburn police arrested an 18-year-old on felony warrants.

Isaiah John Baker from Auburn was charged with burglary and theft of property.

Further investigation into the incidents resulted in Baker, an acquaintance of both victims, being developed as a suspect.

He was identified as the individual responsible in both cases. The stolen weapons with a total value of over $1,000 were recovered by police.

Baker was transported to the Lee County Jail where he is being held on a $9,000 bond.
