Albany - Two men are in jail now for that home invasion in Moultrie. Jim Cloud and Craig Gandy were caught about 60 miles from Moultrie near Arlington in Calhoun County. They were caught after railroad workers spotted them walking under a bridge.

A black car, with two men inside, Jim Cloud and Craig Gandy. That's about all Moultrie police were able to tell surrounding law enforcement agencies, and that was enough.   "When we got the suspicious activity report on this vehicle it turned out to be the right one," said Calhoun County Sheriff Jimmy Camp.

Apparently the suspects were trying to hide. They backed up a black Altima underneath this bridge. Some Railroad workers nearby saw the activity and thought it was a little bit suspicious. They called officers and that's what lead to one of the suspects being captured.

Sheriff Camp said, "We spotted them about mile post five or six running into the woods." As officers began combing the woods, McCloud turned himself in. "He got tired and gave out. The briars sent him out and he gave himself up to myself and Chief Taylor."

But Gandy continued to run. That's why Calhoun County Elementary School was placed on lock down. As students were released at 3 PM, they were escorted to the buses by officers.

Principal Joann Wims said, "No one was hurt. We never saw anything.  We just made sure everything was okay."

Officers continued their search with shotguns drawn, four wheelers and K-9s on the ground. Around three, Gandy was captured just a couple of miles away from the same spot where the first suspect was found.

It pays to have citizens who are paying attention.  Camp said, "That makes the job much easier to have citizens make reports like this."

Landing two suspected murderers behind bars. Both men are scheduled to appear in court in Moultrie tomorrow afternoon.
