Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up August 31st

J.D. Lloyd - Thursday, August 31, 2017

 


 

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

 
- A Helena school cafeteria worker found traces of meth on a child's lunch money, leading to the arrest of the mother by the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force over the past weekend. The child had taken the money from the purse of his mother, 44-year-old Heather Brooke Isaacs of Alabaster. When authorities went to her home, they discovered other evidence of synthetic drug use. Isaacs has been charged with chemical endangerment of a child where a controlled substance was produced, possession of imitation drugs and use/possession of drug paraphernalia. She is in the Shelby County Jail on a $17,000 bond; the child has been taken into custody by the Shelby County Department of Human Resources.

 

 

- Instead using the vehicle to deliver children to their usual morning destination, a Kentucky drove a stolen Blount County school bus through Jefferson and Blount Counties around 1 a.m. this past Monday morning, prompting a police car pursuit from exit 110 on I-59 south to the Acton Road exit on I-459 north. During the chase, the suspect hit one state trooper vehicle and attempted to hit several others. After being stopped by police and before being arrested, the suspect, 24-year-old Brandon Peckinpaugh, threw a stolen handgun out one of the bus windows. Saying that he stole the bus because his friends left him, Peckinpaugh is charged with first-degree theft of property, two counts of unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle and two counts of theft of second-degree theft of property (the stolen handguns). Police also plan to get an attempted murder for Peckinpaugh's collision with the state trooper.

 

 

A Birmingham man was shot while playing videos games on his front porch this past Monday. Witnesses said they heard an argument between the victim and the suspect followed by 15-20 shots fired into the victim's home and BMW. The gunfire shattered the vehicle's windows and flattened one tire while the victim suffered a non life-threatening shot in the leg. The suspect is believed to live nearby, but Birmingham police have not announced any arrests.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up April 3rd

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, April 03, 2017

 


Here are a few of the criminal law stories that occurred around the state of Alabama this past week:

 

- A Jefferson County grand jury has indicted a 46-year-old man on 10 felony counts after he "eluded lawmen for seven hours, carried out a home invasion and fired at officers three separate times before he was shot and wounded" in the summer of 2016 in Fultondale. Alvin Roy Jacobs has been convicted seven times prior for felonies and misdemeanors such as criminal trespassing, felony escape and second-degree assault. This time, he faces six counts of attempted murder, and one count each of first-degree kidnapping, first-degree burglary and drug possession.

 

- A popular Warrior Speed Mart has allegedly been a hotbed for drug trafficking. Authorities booked four people into the Jefferson County Jail after conducting simultaneous raids on the convenience store and the owner's home. The group faces a variety of misdemeanor and felony charges, including 28-year-old Khang Dang Nguyen who had a prior drug trafficking conviction in Tuscaloosa. This time around, he is also facing a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. 

 

 

- On March 10th, a Jefferson County grand jury returned indictments for five men accused of unrelated slayings in Jefferson County during 2016. The shootings occurred in Birmingham area locations such as Kimberly and Tarrant as well as the city of Birmingham. The suspects range in age from 41 to 19 with several of the men having prior convictions for murder or attempted murder.

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, December 30, 2016

Here are a few of the criminal law stories that occurred around the state of Alabama this past week:

 

 

  • - An Orlando, FL couple involved in a multiple-state debit card skimming scan were apprehended by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office last Wednesday.

  •  
  • - The peace of the Christmas weekend was disrupted last Friday night by multiple arrests in a Brookside drug bust. Five suspects (many with young children in two) were arrested and now face a multitude of charges such as chemical endangerment of a child, trafficking cocaine, trafficking heroin, conspiracy to commit controlled substance crimes, possession of drug paraphernalia, second-degree possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of firearms.
  •  
  • - Two Huntsville men have been arrested in connection with an illegal drug deal that turned deadly at a Madison Sonic this past Monday. Authorities believe they had planned to rob the 18-year-old during the deal. The suspects now are being held in Limestone County Jail and will face the death penalty of life in prison without parole if convicted of capital murder.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up December 12th

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, December 12, 2016

 

Here are a few of the criminal law stories that occurred around the state of Alabama this past week:

 

 

  • - A “gun-wielding” version of the viral phenomenon, the Mannequin Challenge, recently led to the arrest of two North Alabama residents. The video, which has been shared over 86,000 times since being uploaded to Facebook in early November, shows several people in front of a neighborhood house and street posing with guns. After receiving a search warrant nearly a month after the video was posted, Madison County Police seized two handguns, an assault rifle and a shotgun along with several bags of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. As of last Tuesday, two men, aged 49 and 23, were being held in the Madison County Jail in connection with the incident. Another male, 24, was taken into custody on a first degree charge of marijuana possession, but soon posted bail.
  •  
  • - The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency announced the arrest of a 45-year-old Birmingham Schools employee on Friday. Charles Edward Walker Jr. faces drug trafficking charges after police seized 1,700 grams of heroin with fentanyl ($500,000 street value) and 90 grams of crack cocaine ($9,000 street value). Officers also confiscated a vehicle, a handgun and $55,000 in cash. The suspect posted bail and was released early Friday, but police report that the investigation is still ongoing.
  •  
  • - Most businesses use social media for marketing and sales initiatives during the holiday season. The Pants Store in Crestline take a slightly different approach, specifically using Facebook and other platforms to “shame” shoplifters caught on camera. The most recent instance occurred during the store’s annual Holiday Open House on December 8th. A woman entered the store during the sale, and then proceeded to pick out a few items, try them on in the dressing room and walk out wearing a pair of $150 shoes, a pair of $160 pants and a purse full of other items. After discovering the theft, the owners posted an image from one of Pants Store’s 16 security cameras and asked for help in identifying the woman. As of Friday, they had a possible ID and are working with Mountain Brook police.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up November 18th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, November 18, 2016

 

Here are a few of the criminal law stories that occurred around the state of Alabama this past week:

  •  
  • - Victims of an auto parts store robbery in Birmingham turned the tables on the suspect when they followed him and exchanged fire. Demetria Dinkins, Jr. fled the scene after crashing his vehicle and was then arrested after attempting to check himself into St. Vincent’s Hospital for the gunshot wounds. Birmingham police charged Dinkins with five counts of first-degree robbery and are holding him on bonds totaling $200,000.
  •  
  • - Police conducting a traffic stop near a Florence home encountered a suspect with marijuana paraphernalia inside his vehicle. Officers soon made their way to the suspect’s house, where they discovered several marijuana plants as well as two children under the age of six. They arrested a 30-year-old man and 27-year-old woman, charging them with first-degree possession of marijuana, endangering the welfare of a child and exposing children to narcotics. The female suspect, Jacqueline Hamner, was released on a $13,500 bond while the male suspect, Jeremy Hamner, is still in jail.
  •  
  • - Remains found in McCalla are believed to be the body of a 59-year-old Tuscaloosa man, Morris Davis Watson, who had been reported missing on September 9th. Police arrested two suspects who were identified as Watson’s ex-stepdaughter and her boyfriend. Though the pair were originally charged with stolen property, the fact that Watson’s death was determined to be caused by a gunshot means that the male suspect will be served a murder warrant after he is returned to Tuscaloosa.
