Cameron Gardner McGlothan Missing
2013-03-11

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office needs the help of the public and media outlets.  On Thursday March 7, 2013, Sheriff’s deputies were notified that Cameron Gardner McGlothan, 19 years of age, had been missing since Tuesday March 5.  He was last seen by his mother at approximately 10:00 p.m. in the family home in the Highland Lakes neighborhood.  McGlothan left the home sometime during the night and has not been seen or heard from since then.  He is described as a black male, 5’ 06” tall, weighing approximately 140 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.  When last seen, McGlothan was wearing a blue plaid shirt and blue jeans. 

Sheriff’s investigators believe McGlothan left his home by choice and was likely picked up by a friend.  McGlothan does not have a history of leaving without telling someone and it is highly unusual for him to be gone this long.   Sheriff’s investigators have been actively looking for McGlothan but have not been able to find him.  They need your help.

His picture and additional information is available on our website www.ShelbySO.com in the “Missing Persons/Persons of Interest” link as well as on our FaceBook homepage.  He has been reported nationally as “Missing-Endangered” through the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center and National Crime Information Center.

Ryan Matthew Sims Charged with Kidnapping
2013-02-13

At approximately 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday February 12th, 2013, Chelsea Middle School initiated a lockdown after it was reported that a man armed with a gun was in the school.  A Shelby County Sheriff’s deputy assigned to the school for security purposes immediately moved from the front entrance to where the gunman was seen.  There, he and the principal confronted the gunman and learned that he was holding five female students against their will in the girls locker room.  Over the course of the next few minutes, the deputy and principal talked the gunman into releasing the students and then surrendering himself.  No one was injured and the suspect was transported to the Shelby County Jail.

This morning, Sheriff’s investigators obtained six arrest warrants for Ryan Matthew Sims, 21 years of age from Chelsea, Alabama; five warrants for Kidnapping first degree and one warrant for Terrorist Threats.  He remains in the Shelby County Jail and his bonds total $5,015,000.

Sheriff Curry would like to thank our federal law enforcement partners, Hoover Police, Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies and Chelsea Mayor Earl Niven for their assistance yesterday.

Sheriff Curry has re-affirmed his commitment to place a deputy in each of the Shelby County schools where the Sheriff’s Office has primary jurisdiction.  Deputies will continue to be present at these schools while students are there to ensure their safety.
