Man arrested, charged with several burglaries
A Hardin Road resident has been charged in several cases of burglary in the Laws Hill community, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Ronald Hubert Dean, 18, of the 700 block of Hardin Road, was arrested at a residence September 14 after 911 received a call made by Dean saying he was in the home and a man was standing outside with a gun. Dickerson said Pete Brown of the Laws Hill community caught the suspect inside his daughter’s home and held the suspect at bay until deputies arrived.
Besides that break-in, Dean is charged with three additional counts of burglary for allegedly breaking in the Laws Hill Community Center and vandalizing the building, for allegedly breaking in Mt. Moriah Church and for allegedly breaking into a residence near the church where a weapon was taken, the sheriff said.
Dean remains in jail on $50,000 bond, Dickerson said.
An investigation into the burglaries has been ongoing for several months, he said.
