Police officer indicted
Michael Wilson, a four-year officer with the Holly Springs Police Department, was indicted by the Marshall County grand jury July 15 for the sale of hydrocodone, a controlled substance, to an undercover officer, according to chief Robert Pearson.
“Wilson was arrested and taken into custody by members of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday, July 21, at the Holly Springs police station,” Pearson said. “Wilson was immediately relieved of duty and suspended without pay, pending adjudication of the charge in the Marshall County Circuit Court.”
After being arrested, Wilson was released on bond pending his appearance in the Marshall County Circuit Court on August 6, Pearson said.
Two other arrests were made last week the Holly Springs police.
Larry D. Campbell, 18, of Holly Springs, was arrested Wednesday, July 22, and charged with burglary of an auto, Pearson said.
Marty D. Stanton, 34, of Hickory Flat, was arrested on Thursday, July 23, and charged with aggravated assault, he said.
A robbery of an individual was reported in the 300 block of Van Dorn on Thursday, July 23. A black, touch-screen Samsung cell phone valued at $300 was taken.
Officers investigated an auto burglary in the 400 block of Industrial Park Road on Sunday, July 26. The vehicle is a 1985 maroon, Mustang GT.
Officers responded to an auto burglary report in the 200 block of Gholson Avenue Sunday, July 26. The owner discovered three of his vehicles burglarized. A digital camera and pair of Olympus binoculars were taken from a 2006 Suburban and approximately 30 CDs and an iPod player and charger were taken from a 2000 Volvo. Nothing was discovered missing from a 2007 Mini Cooper.
Officers were called to Robinson’s Drug Store Monday morning to investigate a breaking and entering, Pearson said.
“It appears someone took a sledge hammer and knocked a hole in the building,” he said.
Approximately $1,000 was missing from a cash register and that figure could go up, Pearson said.
Officers responded to these additional activities for the week – driving while license suspended (2); no driver's license (3); expired tag (1); no proof of insurance (3); speeding (3); malicious mischief (1); shoplifting (2); disorderly conduct (1); domestic violence (3); trespass (1); and simple assault (2).
