Two men spotted rambling through a victim's car early Sunday morning were arrested soon after a witness called police.

Trashawn Robbins, of Claxton, and Jacob Chad Dasher, of Reidsville, are each charged with entering auto, said Statesboro police Maj. Rob Bryan, interim police chief.

Around 12:15 a.m. Sunday, Officer Derrick Frink responded to Domino's Pizza on Chandler Road regarding an entering auto report that had just occurred.

"The victim informed Officer Frink that his vehicle had been broken into, as most of the items in his front seat had been moved and currency was missing from his middle console," Bryan said in a release issued Tuesday. "A witness stated that he observed one white male and one black male rummaging through the vehicle when he pulled into the parking lot behind Domino's. The witness then pursued the pair on foot for some time before the two subjects separated, and the witness returned to Domino's and contacted law enforcement."

While Frink met with the victim and witness, Cpl. Jared Shababy searched the area of West Gentilly Road and found two subjects matching the suspects' descriptions. He "detained the two subjects (later identified as Dasher and Robbins) without incident," Bryant said.

After the witness positively identified the two as the ones seen in the victim's car, Robbins, 19, and Dasher, 18, were charged and taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where they await further court appearances, according to jail records.
