UPDATE: Marion police have been searching and have had no contact with the individuals at this point. The police chief said the sighting appeared credible.

PREVIOUS POST Marion Police are at this hour searching for a couple on the north side of town who approached a homeowner on Fords Ferry Road seeking help this morning shortly before 8 a.m.

Although police have confirmed nothing, the homeowner told investigators that the man and woman matched the description of the two fugitives wanted in a string of recent burglaries in the Shady Grove area.

Marion Police Chief Ray O’Neal urged residents in town to keep their doors locked until police can determine whether this is a credible sighting.

The two were on a four-wheeler, O’Neal said.

Wanted are Christopher Adam Sheridan, 31, and Brooke Stevens, 34, both of Clay.
