Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up June 28th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, June 28, 2019

Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:


- Police in Gardendale recently filed more charges against a 65-year-old man who allegedly carried out two heists at Jefferson County banks. Authorities obtained and executed robbery warrants against Jackie Wayne Balentine for robberies at SouthPointe bank this past Monday and in 2016. Homewood police also announced a warrant against Balentine for a robbery at that city's Regions. With bonds totaling $600,000, the suspect faces a third-degree charge in the 2016 Gardendale robbery, and first-degree robbery in this week’s holdup. His white Chevrolet truck, seen at multiple robberies including a 2017 robbery in Tupelo, was discovered at his Florence residence on Thursday when police executed the warrant. Balentine was then taken into custody.


- Police have finally captured the owner of the infamous "attack squirrel" Thursday night in Limestone County. After a brief pursuit, Mickey Paulk is set to be booked into the Limestone County Jail on drug and gun charges. He is also being charged with attempting to elude, criminal mischief and felon in possession with a firearm stemming from his capture. Paulk has denied that he fed the squirrel meth.
