Three Arrested In Storage Burglaries
Posted on November 14, 2012
Accused father-and-son burglars were selling some of their ill-gotten gains at a yard sale on Alabama Highway 127 Friday when a victim spotted some of her stolen items and called the Limestone County Sheriff's Department, according to Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt.
They were among three people arrested over the weekend for stealing from storage units.
Father and son Carl Allen Hobbs, 50, and Tyler Dustin Hobbs, 25, both of Athens, were arrested Friday and charged with three counts of third-degree burglary after being accused of burglarizing three units at a storage building on Edgewood Road. Sheriff's investigators later recovered more property that may have been taken from the storage business, he said. The items were taken between October 1st and November 9th.
In a separate case, Mitizie Elizabeth Staggs, 39, of Elkmont, was arrested Saturday in connection with thefts from an Elkmont storage building, McNatt said.
Sheriff's deputies received a tip that items missing from a storage business on Upper Fort Hampton Road were in Staggs' possession. Authorities found furniture, household items, Christmas decorations, a mattress and more at Staggs' home.
McNatt said the items came from three units in the building. Staggs was charged with three counts of third-degree burglary.
