Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:
- Three men, including one dubbed one of "Walker County's Most Wanted", were arrested in a recent raid carried out by the sheriff's office at the home of Bobby and Cheryl Tucker on Crest Avenue in Parrish. Authorities had executed a search at the residence once before. During the raid (which also included Parrish Police Department, the Jasper Police Department Narcotics Division, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit, and the Alabama Department of Corrections Prison K9 team), police arrested Robert Deangelo Tucker on charges of trafficking methamphetamine. Robert Tucker had evaded captured during the May 15 raid of the home, and had outstanding warrants for first-degree escape, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, carrying a concealed weapon, distribution of methamphetamines, distribution of marijuana, and distribution of Suboxone. The two others arrested included Bobby J. Tucker, 64, who was charged with hindering prosecution, possession of methamphetamine, second-degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, and Andre Bernard Tucker, 28, who is charged with second-degree possession of marijuana.
- Authorities are currently investigating a 29-year-old Hoover woman who allegedly stole jewelry while pet sitting. Police responded to a call at a local residence from which several pieces of jewelry were taken, even though no burglary seemed to have taken place. The victim accused her pet sitter, Jordan Elizabeth Rodgers. Rodgers had sold jewelry matching the description of those pieces to a store in Birmingham. Once the victim identified the jewelry (worth over $12,000), police obtained warrants against Rodgers for two counts of first-degree receiving stolen property and one count of second-degree receiving stolen property. Rodgers turned herself in to the Jefferson County Jail this past Monday and was released after posting the $30,000 bond.
