Sheriff’s deputies make arrests in assault, grand larceny cases
By SUE WATSON
A suspect who was being sought on charges of assault turned himself in to Marshall County authorities this week, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Montrell Ellis, 22, of 58 Cedar Oak Circle in the Byhalia area, surrendered to authorities on February 7, Dickerson said. Ellis remains in jail on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and trespassing, following an incident at a parking lot in the Victoria area. Bond has been set at $200,000, the sheriff said.
Ellis is alleged to have had words with a victim in the parking lot and fired several shots with a .40 caliber weapon as the victim attempted to flee in his vehicle. Ellis subsequently fled on foot and was being sought in connection with the incident, Dickerson said.
The victim sustained a gunshot wound to the arm and numerous bullets struck the vehicle the victim was driving, he said. Ellis was officially charged and arraigned in Marshall County Justice Court this week.
Authorities are seeking to revoke a previous bond on felony charges on Ellis, the sheriff said.
In an unrelated incident, a man was arrested and charged February 13 in connection with an auto theft on Kizer Mountain Road. The grand larceny theft was reported on December 26, Dickerson said.
Louis Jones, 51, of Humphreys Road in the Red Banks area, was arrested and charged with grand larceny in connection with the theft of a Ford Mustang, arraigned in justice court and bond was set for Jones at $5,000, Dickerson said. The Ford Mustang had been crushed at a salvage yard, Dickerson said.
