ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A nosey neighbor is credited with helping investigators catch two burglars in the act Saturday morning. 

Lee County investigators found stolen items in garbage bags stashed outside the apartment that was being burglarized on Winding Way. It contained 17 pairs of shoes, many of them Air Jordans along with dozens of video games, a PlayStation 3, an X-Box 360 and more.

Good descriptions of the suspects from the neighbor allowed Captain Brenden Browning and Deputy April Morris to spot the suspect on Old Leesburg Road not far from the scene.  

"All kinds of information they can gather up for us, even though it may seem small to you, it could lead to something bigger and that's how a lot of crimes are solved," said Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals.

 24 year olds Brandon Curtis Smith and Jamie Antonio Morgan have both been charged with burglary. Police say the items stolen are worth about $7,600. The goods will be returned to the owner.
