On Saturday, officers with the county sheriff’s office arrested Anthony Lavell Fisher, 28, of Autumn Oak Drive, and Quadarius Mickerson 20, of Nevins Drive.
The two men are suspected of stealing a .45-caliber handgun and other items from the home of Deputy Chief Todd Elmore Friday, according to Tony Underwood, a spokesman for the Union County Sheriff’s office.

On Friday, a manhunt for Fisher and Mickerson resulted in the lockdown of New Town Elementary School in Waxhaw.

Authorities believe they are responsible for three or four other break-ins that occurred in Union County on Friday, Underwood said.
