Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up December 15th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, December 15, 2017

 


 

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

 

 

- Decatur police seized an airplane and 38 pounds of marijuana when they arrested a 56-year-old California man at the Pryor Field Regional Airport last Friday, December 8th. Police had received a tip from federal authorities that the suspect, Yevgeny Faktorovich of Sausalito, California, would be landing his 1967 Beech Craft V35A around 3:45. The local officers came to inspect his pilot license and brought in a K-9 to detect any marijuana. Fakatorovich acted nervous when the officers started searching the plane and they eventually found a large garbage bag, suitcase, and a black plastic storage bin full of marijuana. Faktrovich was released Saturday, December 9th from the Limestone County Jail after posting $100,000 bail.

 

- A 21-year-old man was shot to death this past Sunday inside of an apartment of Valley Avenue in Birmingham. The victim, Terrell Thomas Guy Jr of Adamsville, had been a star basketball at Mountain Brook High School in 2015 where he scored the winning shot that sent the school to the 7A state championship that year. Authorities are trying to look at multiple variables and scenarios such as an argument that stemmed from a disagreement over a gambling debt or dice game. They are still looking for information or suspects connected with Guy's death. Guy's death marked Birmingham's 102nd homicide of 2017.
 
  -  A 29-year-old Athens woman was arrested for breaking and entering into two vehicles of employees in the parking lot of the Limestone County Jail. In the first vehicle, an officer was sitting in the driver's seat eating a biscuit when Natasha Dawn Mencia opened the door and got in the passenger seat. He asked her what she was doing and Mencia exited the vehicle. The officer followed Mencia to another employee's personal vehicle where she broke in and entered. However, she took no items from the vehicle and eventually asked the officer following her to take her to jail. Mencia is charged with breaking and entering a vehicle, a Class C felony that's punishable by up to 10 years in prison. She was released Saturday, December 9th on a $2,500 bail.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up July 26th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, July 26, 2017

 


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

 

 

- Four teenagers held a mother of two at gunpoint while they stole videos games from her Hartselle home. The armed male suspect forced the mother to the ground and the other two suspects took the games as well as a gaming system. Snapping a picture of the getaway vehicle - which also was driven by a fourth suspect - and two of the suspects, she called authorities who conducted an unsuccessful search of the area. However, a few days later, the victim and her friend saw the vehicle in a trailer park. Police came and arrested the driver, 19-year-old Jared Austin Cooper, who is being held on a $30,000 bond. Police also arrested 16-year-old Lauren Casey Stafford and are on the lookout for 17-year-old Brandon Michael Price. Stafford and Price will be tried as adults, and all three suspects are charged with first-degree burglary. The fourth suspect is being charged as a juvenile. 

 

 

- An argument over cutting the grass and a property dispute led to the death of an Autauga County man on July 15th. Neighbors reported hearing a verbal altercation between 59-year-old John Brown and 73-year-old Joseph Huffman over Brown's mowing the lawn in a certain five-acre parcel of the 40-acre Pink Lilly Community. During the argument, Huffman fatally shot Brown once with a shotgun. Huffman is currently out on a $30,000 bond. 

 

- Coosa County sheriff's deputies and a group Alabama Law Enforcement Agency narcotics officers recently conducted a raid that led to the arrest of two men and the confiscation of more than $310,000 of marijuana. After showing the warrant to resident and convicted felon Randolph Pearce, police entered the home and soon discovered an elaborate hydroponic marijuana grow operation complete with grow lights, timers, irrigation, fertilization and more. There were about 30 plants in the property's outbuilding as well as another 32 in a plant-cloning apparatus. Pearce received charges of first-degree manufacture of a controlled substance, first-degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia; he is at Coosa County Jail on a $30,000 bond. An accomplice, 46-year-old Anthony Wayne Grogan, attempted to flee the scene during the raid. A separate search of his residence turned up weapons and illegal drugs. Grogan was charged with possession of a controlled substance, certain persons forbidden to possess a firearm, possession of drug paraphernalia, first-degree possession of marijuana and first-degree manufacture of a controlled substance.
