With one suspect in custody and charged in a house invasion/armed robbery in the Red Banks area June 12, law enforcement is intensely pursuing leads into the identification of suspects in that incident and a second one in the Watson community, according to Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Ronnie Nunnally, 36, of Hoover Road in Benton County, was arrested on Scales Tower Road in Marshall County Tuesday, June 12, and charged with armed robbery in connection with the house invasion in Red Banks, according to Kelly McMillen with the sheriff’s department. Nunnally is being held on $300,000 bond in the Marshall County jail following initial appearance in Justice Court Friday, June 15. His bond was revoked in a burglary case in Benton County, McMillen said.
Law investigators are seeking two other black male suspects who are believed connected to the house invasion in which a Red Banks man suffered head injuries, he said.
Sheriff Dickerson thanked the Benton County Sheriff’s Department and officers with the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (U.S. Marshal’s Service) for their assistance in the identification of Nunnally as a suspect in the case.
In a separate house invasion/armed robbery that took place in the evening hours of June 11 in the Watson community, investigators are pursuing good leads, Dickerson said.
“We hope there will be arrests in the near future,” he said.
Investigators are looking for three black male suspects in the house invasion at Watson, according to McMillen. The victims were threatened but not physically harmed, he said.
Dickerson said there is a Crime Stoppers reward and another award out for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of individuals responsible for the two house invasions/armed robberies.
In a separate incident, a Hudsonville man was arrested and charged with armed robbery of a man on Wall Hill Road.
Louis Cortez Raimey, 20, of Hudsonville Road in Holly Springs, was arrested and charged with armed robbery, according to Dickerson. Raimey is alleged to have taken money from a victim at gun point, he said.
A second suspect, as yet unidentified, is being sought in the armed robbery incident. Dickerson said the suspect is believed to have accompanied Raimey.
Dickerson is also asking anyone with information regarding residential burglaries that took place in the Byhalia, Victoria, St. Paul Road and Mt. Pleasant areas to contact the sheriff’s department at 662-252-1311. All information will be kept in strict confidence, he said. Or callers who want to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169.
