SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police have arrested to suspects in an April 20 burglary that took place on Lavon Avenue. 

Officers were dispatched to a home on the 1300 block of Lavon Avenue around noon, after the resident was alerted by his security system that someone had entered his home. He reviewed the security footage and was able to give officers information on the suspects. 

Beacuse of the willingness of the resident to communicate with police as well as officers' quick response, the suspects were arrested. Police say 22-year-old Matthew Gordon was arrested in the driveway of the house. Twenty-six-year-old Marcus Jones ran from the scene but was arrested on-foot a short while later after a brief chase. Both were charged with burglary. 

Police say Jones was on probation and parole at the time of his arrest. 

Through further investigation, Gordon was linked to and charged for another burglary that happened on April 20 on English Saddle Court. He's also been charged with burglary in the past.
