Deputies make break-in, larceny arrests
By SUE WATSON
Three suspects were arrested in a scrap-metal grand larceny case and one juvenile was arrested and charged in the break-ins of two houses, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
The arrests in the scrap metal case were a result of a caller tipping off authorities on January 16 about the theft of I-beams in the Kings Road area. Michael Palmer, 21, of the 600 block of Rebecca Drive, Michael Dwayne Looney, 21, of the 300 block of Alvin Drive, and James Phillip, 44, of the 500 block of Rebecca Drive, all in the Byhalia area, were arrested after deputies obtained and executed a search warrant at the residence of one of the suspects where the I-beams were found loaded onto a trailer, the sheriff said.
The break-ins of two houses twice in the Stonewall Road and Red Hills Road area led to the arrest of a 17-year-old male juvenile living in the Byhalia area. Jewelry, electronic games, televisions and two computers were taken after the suspect broke in the back doors, the sheriff said.
The break-ins occurred November 29 and December 14, 2011, at the Stonewall Road residence, and on November 2, 2011, and January 20, 2012 at the Red Hills Road residence.
The juvenile has been detained and is under house arrest while his court date is arranged. He was charged February 2 as a suspect in the residential burglaries.
Dickerson asks anyone who has information that could help identify suspects in scrap metal thefts and break-ins or burglaries or in any other crimes to call 662-252-1311 and ask to talk to the investigative team, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169 and leave a tip. Callers will remain anonymous and information provided will be kept in strict confidence.
An error was made in the February 2 issue of The South Reporter, on page 13. The name of one suspect identified by Marshall County Sheriff’s Office in the theft of several trailers was transposed. The correct name of the suspect, according to the sheriff’s office, is Robert Daniel, 46, of the Woodland Cove area of Byhalia.
