      Late in the evening of Tuesday, December 27th, Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office developed information that led them to a mobile home at 35 Rocky Ridge in Higden. At the residence the officers located and recovered stolen property from several residential burglaries and arrested two suspects living at that address. Both suspects 27 year-old Lucas Clevenger and 18 year-old Skylar Murphy were booked into the Cleburne County Detention Center. A third suspect and also a resident, Kody Cooper, age 19 was located and taken into custody the following morning near Concord.
