Update on Shooting Death
2017-08-13

On Saturday August 12th, 2017, at 3:20 p.m., Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 300 block of Shelby County Highway 437 to investigate a report of a person who had been shot at a residence. Upon arrival deputies located an unresponsive adult male lying on the ground outside of the home and quickly discovered that he had been shot. Medical rescue personnel attempted to revive the victim but were unsuccessful and he was pronounced deceased at the scene. The victim is identified as Samuel Julius Nave, 30 years of age, who lived at the residence in Sterrett, Alabama. Deputies and investigators interviewed two other adults who were at the home, another male and a female who lived there with Nave, and detained the male for further questioning. Investigators believe the shooting was the result of an on-going domestic dispute between Nave and the female resident. At some point Nave threatened the other male subject with a weapon, which led to the shooting. After interviewing all of the witnesses, and the subject who shot Mr. Nave, and reviewing all of the evidence, the subject was released pending further investigation including an autopsy and a thorough review by the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office. Criminal charges may still be pursued but the subject who shot Nave has not been charged at this time. Anyone with information about this shooting is urged to contact the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office directly at (205)669-4181, through the Secret Witness line at (205)669-9116 or through our website at www.ShelbySO.com by clicking on the “Report Criminal Activity” link and choosing the “General Information” category.

Deputies Arrest Subject for Burglary of Local Business
2017-07-10

In the early morning hours of July 8, 2017, deputies responded to an alarm call at Shelby Country Store in Shelby.  Deputies arrived to find a person inside the store.  As the individual was attempting to flee the store, through a hole in the wall, he was taken into custody by deputies.  Aaron Carden, of Shelby, was arrested at the scene and has been charged with Burglary 3rd Degree and Possession of Burglars Tools.  Carden is currently being held in the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $10,000.  Sheriff Samaniego would like to publicly commend the two deputies who caught this business burglar in the act.  Thanks to their attention and dedicated service this business did not lose any of its property and the offender was quickly arrested and taken to jail.

For information on the charges listed above, go to the link below and select Title 13A-Criminal Code and Chapter 7- Offenses Involving Damage To And Intrusion Upon Property. http://alisondb.legislature.state.al.us/alison/codeofalabama/1975/coatoc.htm.  To view a Shelby County jail inmate’s picture, their charges and bonds, go to www.shelbyso.com and click on the “Inmate Listing” link at the bottom left. You may then type in the inmates last name and click on the “Search” button. An inmate’s information is not available until he or she is booked into the facility.

Businesses which close for the night can do several things to make themselves a harder target. Installing bright lighting on the exterior reduces the concealment thieves have when entering and lets patrolling deputies clearly see doors and windows are still secure. Leaving interior lights on or installing motion sensing lighting reduces thieves concealment once inside. Locking the items thieves target, such as cigarettes, in a cabinet overnight will delay the quick grab and escape.
