Three charged in home invasion
By SUE WATSON
Two adults and one juvenile were arrested and charged with aggravated assault and burglary in connection with a home invasion over the weekend, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
The suspects forced their way into the home of an 82-year-old woman living alone on Wall Hill Road Friday, August 21 around 5 p.m., he said.
While inside the residence, the suspects struck the victim in the eye with a rifle and robbed her of her billfold and an undetermined amount of cash, according to Dickerson. The subjects also took a 19-inch flat screen television, a camcorder, a .22 rifle and two pellet rifles, a small suitcase full of jewelry and a pair of binoculars from the residence.
Suspects left on foot and were later apprehended at a residence less than one-half mile down the road from the home invaded, Dickerson said. The property was recovered at that residence in the trunk of a car.
Antonio Douglas, 27, of 1451 Mays Road, Independence, and Latrell Lashun Wilson, 19, of 795 Wall Hill Road, and a juvenile were later charged with aggravated assault and burglary. Douglas and Wilson were in jail on $100,000 bond each, Monday. The juvenile was taken to detention in Tupelo.
In another unrelated crime over the weekend, a Potts Camp man was arrested and charged with breaking and entering a residence with intent to commit aggravated assault, Dickerson said.
The burglary occurred Saturday, Aug. 22, at around 3:15 a.m. at a dwelling at 921 Highway 349 South at Potts Camp, the sheriff said. Suspect Johnathan Anderson, 28, of 1539 Macedonia Road in Potts Camp, was arrested after allegedly leaving the scene where a male victim had been beaten.
The suspect is alleged to have entered the residence without knocking and with intent of committing an assault, Dickerson said. Bond for Anderson was set at $25,000.
Dickerson said the victim, on leave from the military, was transported to the hospital and later the military came to the hospital and transported the victim to a military facility. The victim was on three-day leave when the incident occurred, he said.
