Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:
- Sometimes real life is stranger than the movies. This Friday, authorities announced that a Mississippi woman had been arrested in connection with two North Alabama "wedding crasher" theft cases. The suspect, 52-year-old Sandra Lynn Henson, has been charged with one misdemeanor count of theft and one felony theft charge after allegedly showing up to weddings to which she was not invited and stealing gifts. Henson turned herself in after photos of her appeared on the Florence, Alabama Police Department Facebook page. She was released from the Lauderdale County jail on $2,500 bail.
- A 50-year-old Jefferson County man named Ira Glover allegedly stole possibly hundreds of rolls of toilet paper from a Trussville Fresh Value store. This incident was one of three heists that have occurred since March and Glover had even been captured and put on probation that first time; the second heist included an unidentified accomplice. This time around, authorities were ready with a high tech surveillance operation. As he exited the store, the authorities chased Glover until he crashed on US Highway 11. Glover owns a janitorial company and was allegedly stealing the paper products to replenish his stock. He has been charged with attempting to elude law enforcement and reckless endangerment and is currently in the Trussville City Jail.
