Birmingham Theft Suspect Found Hiding In Home

Lee Osborne, 23, of McCalla, was arrested for theft this week after police found him hiding at a home in Sylvan Springs. Jefferson County sheriff's deputies and Mountain Brook police say they took extra precaution in the apprehension of Osborne, who they say held his small child hostage and barricaded himself last time police attempted to arrest him.

Mountain Brook police chief Ted Cook said that his department had been seeking Osborne in connection to

car break-ins around the Crestline Village area. He has been charged with various crimes including unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle, second degree theft, and receiving stolen property.

Adding to his legal troubles, Osborne also had outstanding probation warrants for receiving stolen property and kidnapping charges in Tuscaloosa and Jefferson counties. If Osborne is found guilty of the crimes with which he is charged, he could be facing serious prison time. If you or someone you know has been arrested and charged with a crime, contact an experienced attorney who can help fight for your innocence.
