Three charged in theft
By SUE WATSON
Three suspects have been charged with copper wire theft and one suspect is at large, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
The three individuals were arrested by Marshall County sheriff’s deputies and investigators April 19 and April 20 and charged with burglary of a commercial building. Two of those three suspects turned themselves in to authorities and made bond. A fourth suspect has been identified and an arrest warrant and BOLO (Be On Look Out) have been issued on the National Crime Information Center. Shelby County Safe Streets Task Force and Memphis police were also alerted, the sheriff said.
The three arrested and charged with stripping copper wiring from inside and outside a building at 835 Highway 178 East, Holly Springs, are Jerry Reliford, 36, of 185 Elder Street, Kerry Terrelle Reliford, 32, of 4844 Highway 4 East and Corey Montae Jackson, 25, of Old Highway 4 West, all Holly Springs addresses, Dickerson said.
A man was arrested and charged with burglary/home invasion connected with an incident April 21. Sheriff’s deputy William Wilson answered a call to a St. Mary Avenue address in Potts Camp that a burglary was in progress, Dickerson said.
The homeowner had heard the burglar break in and had barricaded herself in the master bedroom and called dispatch – waiting on the line until law officers arrived.
When Wilson arrived, the suspect was already inside the residence, having gained entry by breaking out a back window, he said.
The deputy made entry after kicking in the front door, Dickerson said. At that time the deputy deployed a taser and took the suspect into custody. The suspect, Luther Charles Jones, 22, of the Potts Camp area, was also charged with the burglary of a house at 86 Pontotoc Avenue that took place in June 2009, he said. Jones is being held on $250,000 bond.
The sheriff’s department is investigating the death of a Slayden woman, Gloria Kolesar, following the collision of the Mustang she was driving with a Ford pickup Friday evening at the intersection of Slayden Road and Concord Road.
Coroner James Richard Anderson said Kolesar’s body was found in shallow water in a drainage ditch near the accident. Investigators have not determined how she left her Mustang, Anderson said. The accident was called in to dispatch at 9:22 p.m. and Anderson pronounced Kolesar dead on the scene. He said there was lots of damage to the Mustang and a good bit of damage to the pickup.
Sheriff Dickerson said after discussions with the district attorney, he expects felony charges to be issued against the driver of the pickup.
