Crime reports

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

The owner of property stolen from Storage Unit 49 at A-1 Storage on Hwy 50 between Dec. 16 and 19 spotted a piece of his furniture outside a junk store on West Commerce Street next to AJ Medical. Inside the store he found several more of his possessions. The store owner could not remember the name of the person who sold him the stolen items, but remembered trading a Milwaukee worm-drive saw and $100 for them. The saw was later pawned at Ray's Pawn Shop. According to the report by Deputy Layne Worsham of the Marshall County Sheriff's Department, the victim recovered his moving dolly, end tables, mirror, china cabinet, Weber grill, toilet paper holders, TV trays, two Infinity speakers, and a glider rocker.

In another crime investigation, about 50 back-flow preventers for an irrigation system were taken from a property on Verona Caney Road sometime between Dec. 25 and 28. The owner estimated their total value at $3,000, and explained to MCSD Deputy Matt Owens that the backflow preventers were made of cast iron and lined with copper. The smaller ones were 24-28 inches long, made in sections, and two larger ones were about four feet long.

Several back-flow preventers that resembled the stolen ones were found at the scrap yard on East Commerce Street on Dec. 29. "The owner of the scrap yard placed these items in a bin and will hold them pending further investigation. Case will be forwarded to the detective division," Deputy Cecil Thrasher wrote in his report.
