Two Calhoun County men face first-degree burglary charges after being arrested last week by Piedmont police.

Teatro Ladarion Beard, 21, of Oxford is accused of unlawfully entering a home on Kines Road in Piedmont on Aug. 15 while carrying a firearm. According to the warrant, Kines either used or threatened to use the firearm at the time.

It’s unclear what led to the alleged Kines Road break-in. Attempts to reach Piedmont Police Chief Freddie Norton on Saturday were not successful.

On Thursday afternoon, Piedmont police put out a call on Facebook seeking help locating Beard and warning that he was considered “armed and dangerous.” Late Thursday night, the police department posted an announcement that Beard was in custody.

A Jacksonville man, 21-year-old Quavion R. Siders, also faces a first-degree burglary charge in the Aug. 15 incident. Siders was arrested Tuesday and at the Calhoun County Jail. According to a post on the Piedmont police Facebook page, Siders was arrested for an unrelated crime shortly after the alleged Aug. 15 break-in.

Under Alabama law, first-degree burglary is punishable by a minimum of 10 years in prison.

Both men are set to appear in court Sept. 17.
