Deputies make arrests in home burglaries
By SUE WATSON
Marshall County investigators have recently made arrests in five burglaries, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
In a residential burglary in the Rebecca Drive/Marshall Cove area at Matthews Corner reported Monday at about 9:57 a.m., investigators talked to witnesses who had called in suspicious activity. They told deputy Will Wilson they saw two suspects get out of a vehicle at Marshall Cove. One suspect left on foot while two suspects left the area in a car.
While Wilson continued to investigate, sheriff’s department investigator Jason Mills arrived on the scene where a suspect, who emerged from a wooded area, was being questioned.
Dickerson said Andrew Moore, 21, of Olive Branch, was questioned on the scene, and the suspect said he and a companion, Jesse White, 22, of Byhalia, had gone into the back of a residence and taken a television. The sheriff said Moore carried the television through the woods and stashed it near the road while waiting to be picked up by White and suspect Chelsey Coopwood, 20, of Byhalia.
Moore was taken into custody by investigators after he was spotted on the road. Coopwood was arrested when she returned to the scene to pick up Moore, Dickerson said. White was arrested after investigators received an anonymous tip that he was seen in the Watson community.
Coopwood was charged with conspiracy to commit a crime, according to the sheriff, and White and Moore were charged with burglary of a dwelling. All three suspects awaited arraignment in Marshall County justice court Tuesday.
In separate cases, two suspects have been charged in four residential burglaries that took place in Potts Camp in April and May. The houses were burglarized and some were stripped of copper wire, Dickerson said.
Marquis Payne, 24, of Holly Springs, and Joshua Beard, 24, of Hickory Flat, were charged with four counts each of residential burglary, the sheriff said. The suspects remain in jail with a hold order on them by the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
Two separate accidents on four-wheelers were reported by Maj. David Cook.
One took place about 8:30 p.m. Monday on Taska Road/Loftin Road when a subject struck a mailbox while riding on an ATV. The subject was spotted on the road by a passerby who called 911. The victim was airlifted to The Med by Hospital Wing, Cook said.
A separate four-wheeler accident happened on Sand Road on May 26, Cook said, when the driver ran into the rear end of a second ATV that was stopped in the road. The victim was airlifted to The Med.
A mobile home at 153 Zanola Road caught fire June 7 and was a total loss, according to chief Kenny Holbrook with the Holly Springs Fire Department.
He said the occupants were not at home when smoke was spotted and the fire was reported about 12:22 p.m. Potts Camp Fire Department also turned out to fight the fire.
Holbrook said three-fourths of the mobile home was involved when firefighters arrived.
