Suspect in Burglary Arrested
2016-08-12

On Monday August 8th, 2016, at approximately 11:50 p.m., Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglary in progress call from 911 in the 2800 block of Downing Circle in north Shelby County. The homeowner woke up and saw someone with a flashlight in his house and called 911 but the suspect left the residence before deputies arrived. While deputies were on the scene taking that report, another 911 call came in from a neighbor holding someone at gun point who was trying to break into his car. Deputies arrived at the second residence where the suspect, Daniel Alexander Ferguson, 33, of Birmingham, was found to be in possession of items from the first victim’s residence. He was arrested and charged with Burglary 2nd degree and Theft of Property 3rd degree. Shelby County Sheriff’s investigators began to look further into Ferguson’s history. Their investigation revealed Ferguson was also responsible for a similar incident on July 28th, 2016. On that date, a homeowner in the 2000 block of Little Ridge Circle in North Shelby County woke up around 4a.m. and discovered someone had been in his house sometime during the night. In that case, investigators determined the victim’s property was previously in Ferguson’s possession and as a result, Ferguson was charged with Burglary 2nd degree and Theft of Property 1st degree. Ferguson is currently being held in the Shelby County Jail on all the charges listed with bonds totaling $35,000.

Accident Causes Damage to Rail Road Crossing
2016-07-25

At approximately 1:45am on Monday, July 25, 2016, a one vehicle accident occurred at the RR crossing on Chelsea Road and County Rd 39, in front of city hall in Chelsea. The accident damaged the crossing equipment, so the lights are not currently operating at the crossing. Please avoid this area, if possible, and find an alternate route. CSX Rail Road is working to get the equipment fixed but this will be a very long process, causing indefinite delays. As everyone knows, this is a very busy crossing so we need to remind the public to be extra cautious and to “STOP, LOOK and LISTEN”. Drivers should be cautious and drive slowly because of repairmen and equipment in the area.
