    Two men spotted loading up furniture from a university-area apartment Monday weren't moving out - they were stealing the furniture, police said.
    Statesboro  Police John Allen Smith, Advanced Patrol Officer Sebastian Colquitt and Det. Ken Scott responded to a call about a burglary at Cambridge at Southern Apartments around 11:45 p.m. Monday, said Capt. L. C. Williams. They found two men "loading furniture from the apartment into the back of a truck that was backed up to the breezeway of the building."
    Witnesses confronted the men, and when someone called police, one of the suspects fled. The other was detained, and when Scott began investigating, he identified the suspect as Stephen Lee Webb, 21, who lives in another apartment at the complex, Williams said.
    Webb was arrested on burglary charges, but the other suspect, whom police know only by the name "Anthony," is still at large, he said.
    "Anyone with further information on 'Anthony,'  a white male with blond hair and a slender build,  approximately 5'6" to 5'8" in height ... is encouraged  to call Det. Scott at the Statesboro Police Department," he said. "All information will be treated with the strictest confidence." The department number is 764-9911.
    Webb was taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where he was held Wednesday evening without  bond, according to jail records.
