AUBURN, Ala.- On Jan. 15, 2020, Auburn Police arrested Adrian Lamont King, age 42, from Montgomery, on warrants charging him with breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, theft of property third degree, using a false identity to obstruct justice and fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement.
The arrest stems from an investigation into an auto burglary reported in the 2600 block of Carrington Court. An individual, later identified as King, was seen pulling on the door handle of a vehicle parked at a residence. Responding officers observed King in the vicinity. He immediately fled, and a brief foot pursuit ensued. King was taken into custody moments later by officers, and property taken in a previous auto burglary in the area was located in his possession.
King was transported to the Auburn Police Division where he was interviewed. During the entire investigative process, King misled investigators about his true identity, providing multiple names and identifying information. Detectives confirmed King’s true identity and discovered that he was on parole in Montgomery for multiple property and financial crimes.
King was transported to the Lee County Jail and is being held on a $10,500 bond related to the charges in Auburn, although he is being held without bond for violating his parole.
This case remains under investigation by the Auburn Police Division.
