U.S. Marshals caught 19-year-old DeAnthony Jackson and 20-year-old Percy Jackson IV on Monday night.


Salem Police are searching for two suspects in connection with a home break-in over the weekend.

Officers say they were called to the 10 block of McCauley Drive at 5:12 a.m. on Sunday, June 16, for a burglary in progress. The person who lived in the home stayed on the phone with the 911 dispatcher while the burglars broke in.

When police arrived, they found a 16-year-old girl and 20-year-old Steven Wilson Perez, of Floyd County. Officers say two other men, 19-year-old DeAnthony Marquis Jackson, of Roanoke, and 20-year-old Percy Johnson IV, of Roanoke, both ran away.

Perez faces four charges:

The 16-year-old girl faces charges of statutory burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary.

Police say both Jackson and Johnson are wanted on one charge each of breaking and entering while armed with a firearm.
