Suspects sought in invasions, robberies
By SUE WATSON
Marshall County authorities are seeking any information the public may have connected to two home invasion/armed robbery incidents this week in the Byhalia and Red Banks areas, according to Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Investigators are looking for help with identifying the suspects and the vehicle(s) they were driving.
The first call to 911 for assistance in a home invasion/armed robbery came from the Byhalia area at 9:09 p.m., Monday, June 11, according to Randy Harper with the sheriff’s department. Two suspects are being sought in the first incident, both believed to be black males.
Both suspects in the first incident wore stocking-like coverings over their heads and faces and were driving a faded, red, Chevrolet long-bed pickup, model late 1970s or early 1980s, Harper said.
One suspect was heavyset, about 5’7” and estimated to be in his mid-30s. He wore a dirty white shirt, Harper said. The other suspect was described as about 5’6”, of small frame, weighing about 170 pounds, and possibly in his late 20s.
The two suspects were carrying handguns, took about $200 in cash and fled the scene heading north in the pickup on Highway 309, he said.
A second home invasion/armed robbery was called in to 911 at 12:04 a.m. Tuesday from the Red Banks area. Three suspects are being sought in connection with the second home invasion/armed robbery.
Harper said two suspects matching the same general description in the Byhalia area home invasion are being sought in the Red Banks incident. A third suspect is also being sought.
In the home invasion in Red Banks, one heavyset suspect was wearing no face or head covering but the smaller suspect was wearing some type of covering over his head and face, Harper said. The third suspect was is believed to be taller than the other two. The suspects are believed to have been driving a small, dark-colored car, he said. A small amount of cash was taken in from the resident in Red Banks.
These suspects are believed to be armed and dangerous, Harper said.
