Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up February 23rd

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, February 23, 2018


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



- Police have charged a third suspect allegedly involved in a gang shootout that killed a Western Hills Mall manager on the afternoon of Thursday, February 15th. The victim, 59-year-old Anthony "Tony" Alberigi, was on the sidewalk outside the northern entrance holding papers and a drink when he was shot in what is believed to be a gang crossfire. At 2:30 p.m. one group of young men recognized another group of young men exiting the mall and began shooting at each other with Alberigi getting caught in the middle. The three suspects (24-year-old Ronald Dewayne Weaver, 20-year-old Rashaan Cepadio Brown and the recently charged 24-year-old Anthony Treshun Johnson) were part of the gang who were already outside. The gang fled when Alberigi was shot with two even running to a wooded area between I-59 and the Birmingham Southern campus, putting the school on lockdown. Those arrested all face capital murder charges and remain in the Jefferson County Jail without bond. Johnson was originally was booked on two counts of attempting to elude a police officer, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of a controlled substance with a bond of $4100, which subsequently changed this past Wednesday. Police said the investigation is ongoing, but no further arrests have been made.



- Madison County police investigated two separate incidents this past Wednesday involving a gun on campus and a school threat. Police first announced that they had received through text message information about a student who had allegedly made a threat against a city school; the suspect's name and information has not been released because of his age. In an unrelated incident, police investigated a gun found in a student's car at Madison County High School. A concerned parent had initially emailed the school system with the tip about the gun. According to the school, the school resource officer then brought the student for questioning where it was discovered that they had a .22 caliber rifle in the vehicle, but no threat was ever made. The student was then removed from campus while the sheriff's deputies continue to investigate whether charges will be filed.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up February 9th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, February 09, 2018



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



- Hoover police have put behind bars a Kansas man who allegedly possessed more than 100 stolen checks worth more than $700,000. Police started investigating 32-year-old Justin Edward Fink in mid-January when officers responded to a report of a suspicious incident at Days Inn on Riverchase Drive. According to a police report, hotel staff found a printer and several pieces of paper with counterfeit checks printed on them believed to be left by a hotel guest. After confiscating the items and discovering the identity of the guest, officers also found out that Fink was wanted out of Kansas for burglary of a vehicle. The authorities soon confirmed Fink had gotten the check from several local businesses as well as a few out-of-state individuals. After a similar incident at the Hyatt Place hotel on January 25th, police arrested Fink near the Riverchase Galleria. He was in possession of a forged check from a car dealership in Clanton. After telling police he was staying at the Hampton Inn on John Hawkins Parkway, they got a warrant for his room where they found another printer, driver's licenses, and tax documents as well as 117 stolen checks with a face value totaling more than $760,000. Fink faces charges of trafficking in stolen identities and possession of a forged instrument and is being held in the Jefferson County Jail on a $1.075 million bond.


Alabama lawmen had to shoot a Kentucky fugitive Wednesday after he tried multiple to run over those who were tracking him. The U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force had been searching for 31-year-old Tyler Hayes at the request of the U.S. Marshals Service in the Western District of Kentucky as he was wanted on multiple violent crime warrants out of Kentucky, including felony possession of a firearm. After initially coming into contact with Hayes at a grocery store in Heflin, the suspect tried to flee the scene and run over the officers. Shots were fired, but no one was struck. A pursuit of Hayes that lasted several miles down Highway 9 in which four law enforcement and one civilian vehicles were struck, Hayes tried once again to run over the officers. Shots were fired again, and Hayes was hit this time. According to State Bureau of Investigation Lt. Jon Riley, Hayes had a .38 revolver and $700 worth of crystal methamphetamine in his pocket, and is believed to have been driving a stolen vehicle.
