Juveniles charged with burglary
By BARRY BURLESON
It took deputies just four hours to make one arrest after a burglary on Wall Hill Road, and a second suspect was in custody a few days later.
The 911 alarm call came in at 3:10 a.m. on Friday of last week after glass breakage at Sam’s Country Store, according to Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Officers arrived at the scene shortly and checked the building. The glass in the front door had been completely shattered with a foundation block, he said.
Two suspects were seen on the surveillance video at the business.
“We used the video to identify, and later apprehended both suspects,” Dickerson said.
The two are 15 years old – one from Marshall County and another from Tate County. Both are charged with burglary of a commercial building, he said, and they are being held in a juvenile detention facility in Corinth until a September 6 court date.
The suspect from Marshall was taken into custody at 7:30 a.m. Friday at his residence on Tate-Marshall Road, according to Sheriff Dickerson.
The suspect from Tate was taken in custody by authorities Tuesday morning of this week, according to the sheriff.
The owner of Sam’s Country Store told authorities that cigarettes were the only thing stolen from the business.
