TALLADEGA -- A Talladega man has been charged with burglary in the second degree in connection with an incident last month, according to police Capt. Leon Thomas.
Courtney Shantavious Funderburg, 27, was arrested Tuesday night when he came to Talladega Municipal Court to resolve some misdemeanor charges, Thomas said. He was taken into custody without incident.
Funderburg and Dustin Nicholas Bryant, 31, are accused of breaking into a residence on the 180 block of Red Hill Lane on Aug. 24. The resident was asleep when the men allegedly broke in but woke up when he heard noises at the other end of the house.
The resident startled the two would-be burglars, and they fled without stealing anything, Thomas said.
Bryant was arrested shortly after the break-in, but it took somewhat longer to find Funderburg, Thomas said. Funderburg may also be a person of interest in at least one other burglary.
Funderburg is being held in the Talladega County Metro Jail on a $30,000 bond.
Burglary in the second degree is a class B felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by two to 20 years in prison.
