Two charged with burglary
By SUE WATSON
Two suspects were arrested last week and charged with burglary of an auto at residences on Salem Avenue in Holly Springs after the two attempted to use a stolen ATM card, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
June 20 about 2 p.m., Marshall County deputies were called to the Bank of Holly Springs on Memphis Street to examine video taken of two individuals using the outdoor ATM, he said.
The credit card had been stolen from a vehicle on Salem Avenue June 19, he said.
Investigators identified one of the suspects from bank videos as Lemarcus Dashun Kimmons, 23, of a Lunati Road residence in Holly Springs, Dickerson said. A female wearing some type of covering over her head as an apparent disguise was also seen on the bank’s video.
The two suspects were successful in withdrawing money at the bank, moved on to the South Branch of Holly Springs off Highway 7 South, and then to the ATM at Short Stop during early morning hours June 20 but were unsuccessful in withdrawing cash, Dickerson said. The same day, the female suspect was successful in using the stolen credit card to make purchases at Walmart, he said.
Video at the South Branch Bank of Holly Springs helped identify the female suspect with Kimmons as Hallie Lanate Crosby, 24, of the 100 block of Lemac Avenue, Holly Springs, the sheriff said.
The suspects were arrested in separate locations June 20, with Crosby the first to be taken into custody late that afternoon, Dickerson said.
The suspects may be charged in several additional vehicle burglaries on Salem Avenue after investigators obtained information and recovered some additional stolen goods from Salem Avenue locations, he said.
“We anticipate additional counts of burglary and credit card fraud to be brought against the suspects at the next term of the Marshall County grand jury,” the sheriff said.
The suspects made bond of $5,000 each and were released.
Dickerson urged residents to post their 911 addresses according to law at their homes so law enforcement, fire workers, and ambulance personnel can find their locations in case of emergencies in a timely manner.
“Minutes can make a difference in life and death,” said Dickerson.
