County investigators recover stolen goods
By SUE WATSON
Dozens of items of stolen property, including a Dodge pickup, flat screen televisions, guns and jewelry have been recovered by investigators with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department and one arrest has been made.
Sheriff Kenny Dickerson said Katari Vatray Martin, 23, of the Byhalia area was arrested March 3 in the Olive Branch area and returned to Marshall County where he faces about 16 counts of burglaries of dwellings and grand larcenies. The burglaries were committed in the Marshall County area in a time period from the latter part of 2009 until Martin’s arrest.
The suspect remains in jail on $250,000 bond issued by Justice Court Judge Ernest Cunningham.
Some of the items were recovered from individuals who have been charged with knowingly receiving stolen property, Dickerson said. Those individuals have been charged and are out on bond. Other items were recovered by investigators from various pawn shops in Memphis, he said.
Citizens should be aware that they can be charged with receiving stolen property when buying suspect items from individuals, the sheriff said.
Dickerson also urged citizens to help with the apprehension of individuals who may be committing crimes in the county by calling Marshall County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169 and leaving tips. Callers are not asked to reveal their names when leaving tips and the information provided will be kept in strict confidence.
Dickerson said the public assists investigators greatly in helping solve crimes committed in the county.
