STATESVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

A man and woman were arrested after an alert citizen notified deputies of what the duo was up to, according to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office.

On October 4, a deputy was on patrol on Wilkesboro Highway near Cross Country Road when he was flagged down by a citizen who directed his attention to 1993 Ford Explorer that was parked a short distance down Cross Country Road.

The vehicle had a blue towel in the driver's side window, the report states.

The citizen told the deputy that he knew the owner's of the vehicle, and they would be in the area stealing or breaking into a house.

Another deputy responded, and they began checking various houses in the area, attempting to locate the occupants of the vehicle, deputies said.

Deputies were checking a house on Wilkesboro Hwy when they saw a man and woman running out of a wooded area near where the vehicle was parked. The female was carrying a car battery when she came out of the woods, and threw it down as the deputies approached, the deputies said.

The female, Brittany Michelle Anderson, 17, of Storm Lane in Statesville, and Ronnie Lee Poole, 32, of Storm Lane in Statesville, were both arrested.

The stolen property was returned to the rightful owner.

Anderson and Poole both received a $500 secured bond and were placed in the Iredell County Detention Center. Both have a court date set on November 6, for District Court in Statesville.
