Sheriff’s deputies nab burglary ring suspects
By SUE WATSON
Investigators with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department made arrests in several burglaries in October and November, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Four suspects were arrested and charged with the burglary of a residence on Blackwater Road November 10, around noon, he said. Five guns and a CD player were taken from the residence.
Arrested and charged with burglary of a residence in the Blackwater Road investigation are Thaddeus Johnson, 19, of 400 Ridgecrest Drive, Holly Springs; Theodore Walker, 18, of 253 Minor Street, Holly Springs; Rico Wells, 19, of 891 Old Oxford Road, Waterford; and Quinton McLemore, 19, of 170 Shadow Lane, Holly Springs, Dickerson said.
The guns were recovered.
Investigators made four arrests in connection with a grand larceny of a shotgun from a residence on Higdon Road October 30 around 7 p.m., according to Dickerson. Thaddeus Johnson, Theodore Walker, Quinton McLemore and Courtney Walker, 19, of 135 Randolph Street, Apartment C, in Holly Springs, were charged with grand larceny in the Higdon Road theft, he said. The shotgun was recovered.
A third investigation of the theft of four radiators, four cooling systems, three cast iron pots and two skill saws from a residence on Old Highway 7 South in the Waterford area yielded one suspect, Rico Wells, who was charged with grand larceny in connection with the theft, Dickerson said. The materials were sold for scrap metal and only one skill saw was recovered, he said.
Bond for the suspects was set at $75,000 for Johnson, $40,000 for Theodore Walker, $25,000 for McLemore, $30,000 for Courtney Walker, and $25,000 for Wells, the sheriff said. Wells was released on bond on Tuesday of this week.
Dickerson said several residential burglaries and break-ins in Holly Springs are expected to be solved and more arrests and charges made arising from information obtained during the investigation of this burglary ring.
