Push on in city to apprehend fugitives
By SUE WATSON
Several fugitives with outstanding warrants for arrest were recently apprehended by officers with the Holly Springs Police Department, according to chief Robert Pearson.
Two other arrests in connection with thefts at Wal-Mart stores were also made last week, Pearson said.
Adam Hale Rutland, 22, of Clarksville, Tenn., and Douglas Eugene Noble, 39, of Memphis, were apprehended by Holly Springs police officers for a traffic violation Saturday on Mackie Drive at Alexander Road, he said.
The traffic stop led to the arrest of Rutland and Noble, who were charged with theft of merchandise valued at $760 from Wal-Mart in Holly Springs. The two were also being sought on charges of stealing merchandise valued at $2,400 from the Wal-Mart store in New Albany, he said.
Rutland and Noble are being held on $75,000 bond at the Marshall County jail, Pearson said.
Several people, some whose names were listed as wanted in last week’s edition of the The South Reporter, were arrested on outstanding warrants, Pearson said.
Tennial Richards, 29, of Holly Springs, a suspect in an armed robbery in December 2006, was arrested February 7, Pearson said.
Calvin Richards, 30, of Holly Springs, wanted for questioning in connection with a domestic violence/aggravated assault incident, was arrested February 8 for the alleged stabbing of a female victim in January of this year, according to the chief of police.
Pearson added that since the police department initiated a program to apprehend fugitives with outstanding warrants, 12 individuals have been arrested on misdemeanor or felony charges.
“The department is continuing its efforts to apprehend fugitives on a regular basis with warrants,” Pearson said.
“Individuals who know they have outstanding warrants for their arrest, can save time and inconvenience by turning themselves in at the department and posting bond.”
The following incidents were also reported to police for the last week – petit larceny (five); malicious mischief (three); counterfeiting (one); joy riding (one); harassment (two); DUI (one); simple assault-domestic (two); disturbance (one); stalking (one); and possession of a controlled substance (one).
Anyone having any information regarding these or any other crimes, can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169 or the Holly Springs Police Department at 662-252-2122.
The caller, who is not asked to give a name, may be entitled to a reward of up to $1,000, according to Chief Pearson.
