SCOTTSBORO, Ala. — Two men are facing charges for breaking into multiple homes and using force on older aged victims to get a hold of pain medications.

Scottsboro Police took a report about a home invasion-type robbery. Later on, the department got another one, this time, in a different area of the city.

“The victim said that somebody knocked on her door and when she answered her door, there were two men there wearing masks and they forced her back into the apartment and pushed her to the ground,” Lieutenant Erik Dohring says. “As one of the males held her down, the other one searched and found her medication.”

Scottsboro Police say the two men ran out of the home with that medication.

Dohring says the victim told police she thought she recognized them. “She believed she knew the two males based off of the vehicle,” Dohring explains.

Based off of that information, officers were able to track down the two men to Hollywood, when a third home invasion-type robbery was reported. “Talking to those victims we were able to get the same description, and discovered it was the same two subjects that did all three,” Dohring explains.

Dohring says this happened three times over the course of several hours. In fact, police say these two men knew whose home they were going to. “They knew these people,” Dohring says, “It wasn’t just random acts of violence. They knew these people would have medication.”

Hensley Tyler McClention and Jonathan Lee Hammonds were arrested and face multiple charges. The two men are also facing separate charges in Hollywood.
