Sheriff Kenny Dickerson urged anyone
with any knowledge of the assault upon John Norton, 76, of 308 Clark
Road in the Barton community, to contact either the sheriff’s
department (662-252-1311) or Crime Stoppers (1-800-729-2169). Any information
will be kept strictly confidential, he said.
Norton has been in critical condition
at the Memphis Med since he was found by his daughter in his backyard
with assault injuries, Dickerson said.
In other investigations during January,
Dickerson reported the following arrests:
The four-wheeler was recovered from a subject in the Oxford/Water
Valley area and numerous items of property taken in the burglaries
were also recovered after being sold to residents near Holly Springs,
Glover also has a previous theft-related indictment
from past circuit court action and remains in jail on $75,000 bond,
he said. Stephenson was also charged with possession of a controlled
substance, Dickerson said. His bond is also set at $75,000.
A man was arrested and charged with burglary
in the Saddle Club Road area off Highway 4 West.
Toriano Dowdy, 30, of 6918 Braybourne Main,
Olive Branch, was arrested January 26 by sheriff’s deputies
responding to a tip from a resident in the Saddle Club Road area.
Dickerson said the caller saw a man coming from
a residence on Saddle Club Road carrying a garbage bag containing
some items and was walking toward a car parked nearby.
“Officers responded immediately after receiving
the tip and recovered numerous items of property which had been
taken from a residence moments earlier,” Dickerson said.
Dowdy is charged with three counts of residential
burglary and one count of burglary of a commercial building.
Prior to this incident Dowdy was out of jail
on bond and awaiting court action on a previous burglary related
charge, Dickerson said.
“As a result, his previous bond has been
revoked and Dowdy is in jail without bond awaiting circuit court
action,” he said.
Two men and one juvenile have been arrested
and charged with malicious mischief in the vandalism of garbage
cans and road signs.
Anthony Shane Frankum, 26, of 3155 Highway 178
East, and Daniel Shane Gibbons, 19, of 1769 Wilson Golden Road
near Waterford, were arrested and charged with seven counts of
malicious mischief relative to the vandalism of garbage cans in
the Bethlehem, Potts Camp, Cornersville and Lake Center area,
The suspects are believed to have taken garbage
cans belonging to residents, put them in a vehicle and then thrown
them at road signs.
“Numerous road signs were damaged and numerous
cans destroyed,” Dickerson said. “We are asking anyone
in those areas who are missing a garbage can to contact the Marshall
County Sheriff’s Office. It is possible the cans were taken
by these suspects.”
A juvenile was also charged with malicious mischief
and the case is being handled in Marshall County Juvenile Court,
The arrests were enhanced by alert residents
of the county who were watchful for suspicious vehicles and activities
and promptly who promptly reported the activities to the sheriff’s
department, Dickerson said.
“We appreciate individuals being watchful
of their neighbors homes and property and encourage them to call
in immediately upon sighting of persons of a suspicious nature.
We will respond and check out the vehicle and subjects.”
