Two Fayette County men were arrested in connection with a breaking and entering after deputies said the owners of a grocery store identified them from video surveillance.
Raymond Heath Shockey, 30, and Michael Ray Cooley, 27, both of Fayetteville were charged with breaking and entering after they allegedly broke into Ball’s Grocery about 1 a.m. Saturday on state Route 16 just outside of Fayetteville, according to a news release from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies said the suspects entered the store by using a hammer to break the glass on the door and stole several cartons of cigarettes. The release said they unsuccessfully tried to pry open an ATM machine.
The store owners reviewed surveillance video and identified Shockey and Cooley as the suspects involved in the breaking and entering, deputies said.
Cooley was arraigned in Fayette County Magistrate Court and was released on a $10,000 bond. Shockey was being held in the Southern Regional Jail in lieu of a $10,000 bond. Deputies said additional charges may be filed against the pair. Shockey was on probation for an earlier conviction in Fayette County Circuit Court for breaking into Ball's Grocery.
