On Wednesday afternoon, the Troup County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary in progress call at Highland Pines Resort and Marina.

According to TCSO, two individuals identified as Taylor Pilgrim, 32, and Matthew Thompson, 29, had broken into one of the resort’s cabins and had locked themselves inside. 

“When officers arrived, the two individuals fled on foot into the woods,” said Sgt. Stewart Smith, TCSO public information officer. “Officers later found them that night on Roanoke Road.”
