After arson, Moody airman’s home burglarized again

VALDOSTA — Two Valdosta men are in jail after a neighbor spotted people removing appliances from the fire-damaged home of a Moody Air Force Base airman, according to the Valdosta Police Department today.

At approximately 12:51 p.m. Wednesday, Valdosta police responded to 2418 Deborah Drive after a neighbor reported seeing two men removing a washing machine from the residence and putting it in the back of a grey PT Cruiser.

Officers on the way to the scene pulled the vehicle over after it was spotted on East Park Avenue.

The occupants were identified as Lawrence Parrish, 26, and Cortez Howell, 24, according to police.

Valdosta Police Department Property Crimes Unit detectives responded to investigate and were able to recover a clothes dryer that was taken from the home earlier.

Parrish and Howell are charged with burglary and were taken to the Lowndes County Jail, reports stated.

The residence was home to a Moody Air Force Base airman who was away Sept. 9 when it was burglarized and destroyed by arson. The damage to the home has made large items left in the home easily accessible and clearly seen from the street.

Anyone having further information regarding this crime or any other crime is urged to contact the Valdosta Police Department, (229) 293-3145 or remain anonymous, (229) 293-3091.
