Weekend Vehicle Break-ins
2015-02-16

During the evening hours of Saturday, February 14th, four vehicles were unlawfully entered in a residential neighborhood along Highway 280 and Dunnavant Valley Road. All four vehicles were left unlocked by the vehicles’ owners, to include one vehicle with the car keys left in the ignition. Items stolen include three packs of cigarettes and one .380 hand gun. In November of 2013, the Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, and surrounding law enforcement agencies launched the crime prevention and awareness campaign titled, “Lock It. Hide It. Keep It.” Since that time, our Sheriff and his deputies have met with Home Owner Associations, City Councils, commerce groups, and civic organizations in hopes of sharing the underline message of this campaign, which is: • Lock It: Lock your vehicle every time you leave it unattended. • Hide It: If you don’t have a trunk, hide valuables under the seats, in the glove box, or other compartments within the vehicle. • Keep It: Personal responsibility is the best prevention to safeguard personal property and to prevent becoming a victim. To reduce your chances of being a victim, please remove valuables from your car at night and lock your car's doors. Sheriff’s investigators are currently looking into leads that may possibly identify suspects involved in last Saturday night’s thefts. Anyone with information about last Thursday night’s thefts 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.

Sheriff’s patrol deputies make arrest of out of state Identity Theft suspects during traffic stop
2015-02-11

On Monday morning, February 9, 2015, at approximately 02:30 am, patrol deputies observed a suspicious vehicle leaving a business park area along Highway 280 near the Shelby/Jefferson County line. Deputies initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle for a moving violation. During their initial contact with the driver and two passengers, deputies observed a large collection of U.S. mail, some of which contained business checks. After investigating further, patrol deputies identified multiple pieces of U.S. mail from local businesses along the Highway 280 corridor that were suspected to be unlawfully in the possession of the vehicle’s occupants. The three suspects were placed under arrest for the initial charge of Receiving Stolen Property. Sheriff’s investigators and U.S. Postal Inspectors investigated further, which has resulted in the three suspects each being charged with five counts of Identity Theft and one count of Receiving Stolen Property. The suspects are 31 year old Nikkia Nichole Huff of Atlanta, Ga, 26 year old Daniel Verick Reed of Atlanta, GA, and 23 year old Jemarcus Demetrius Acholes of Atlanta, GA. All three suspects are being held in the Shelby County Jail, each with a $50,000 bond.
