Two face robbery charges
By BARRY BURLESON
Two Tennessee men are in the Marshall County Jail facing armed robbery charges.
Ryan Sandson, 31, of Brownsville, and Quintez Hall, 30, of Knoxville, were arrested in connection with a November 12, 2008, incident at 8189 Highway 309 South, according to Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
He said the two are accused of going into the house, one armed with a handgun, and taking several hundred dollars in cash from the victim. Both suspects are originally from Marshall County, and the victim knew them and let them inside, Dickerson said.
“After the robbery, the victim was shot once in the leg, and we also anticipate aggravated assault charges being filed,” he said.
The victim is at home recovering.
Hall was captured in December 2008 by the U.S. Marshals Service in Knoxville, according to the sheriff, and Sandson was captured earlier this month in Brownsville with the help of U.S. Marshals.
Bond has been set at $100,000 each.
In a separate incident, Jairie Theodore Pierce, 53, of the Byhalia area, was arrested December 17, 2008, and charged with felony possession of a firearm, according to Dickerson.
“He was arrested in the Cayce Road area and in possession of a .243 rifle, attempting to sell it,” the sheriff said.
Pierce remains in jail on a $5,000 bond. Dickerson said he is also awaiting extradition to DeSoto County on Mississippi Department of Corrections charges.
The sheriff’s department continues to seek information about the armed robbery that took place January 5 at Moore’s Grocery/Mike’s One Stop on Highway 72.
Two masked man entered the Marshall County business about 11:30 a.m. that Monday and took over $4,000 in cash.
