Holly Springs police respond to burglaries
Holly Springs police officers responded to three burglary reports for the week ending February 23, according to chief Robert Pearson.
A business in the 500 block of J.M. Ash Drive was burglarized Tuesday, Feb. 17. Someone broke into the snack machine in the break room and took approximately $50 in coins, Pearson said.
A business in the 600 block of Highway 7 North was burglarized Saturday, Feb. 21. Taken were one Browning 12-gauge rifle and one Remington pump short barrel shotgun.
An attempted burglary was reported in the 100 block of Chatham Drive. No items were found missing.
Officers responded to these additional activities last week: driving while license suspended (5); no proof of insurance (4); speeding (3); child restraint (1); disorderly conduct (1); possession of paraphernalia (1); disregard for traffic device (1); and violation of dog ordinance.
Anyone having information regarding any crime committed in the Holly Springs and Marshall County area, please contact Holly Springs Police Department at 662-252-2122 or Marshall County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169. Callers are not required to provide their name when giving tips to law enforcement but may be entitled to a reward of up to $1,000 if the crime is solved.
Driving while talking on the phone is unsafe. Hands-free phones pose the same hazards as hand-held phones.
When drivers look at objects on the road they are less likely to recall seeing them if they are on the phone at the same time. People in their 20s talking on cell phones have the same reaction time as a 70-year-old.
Talking on cell phones cuts a driver’s brain activity in half in the areas of the brain needed for noticing traffic conditions. Conversations with passengers reduce the driver’s attention, too, but they are not as unsafe as talking on the cell phone because passengers can help the driver by pointing out imminent danger.
