The Jefferson Police Department has made two arrests in the theft of items from several locations.
Jackie Chad Allen, 32, Madison County, has been charged with two counts of burglary.
Matthew Daniel, 18, has been charged with four counts of theft by receiving stolen property and two counts of entering a vehicle to commit a theft or felony.
The arrests came after investigators with the Jefferson Police Department received a tip. Working in conjunction with the Jackson and Madison County sheriff departments, a search warrant was issued on March 3 at 151 McGinnis Chandler Road in Madison County. It was alleged that there was a lot of stolen items at this location from thefts throughout several counties.
Numerous stolen items were reportedly recovered from the location and were connected to thefts from several vehicles and the ABC Pawn Shop in Jefferson, as well as other thefts in Jackson and Hall counties.
Most of the recovered property has been identified and returned to the owners. The investigation into other suspects and other crimes is continuing.
WHY DOES THE JEFFERSON POLICE SEAT OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS ON I-85 SOUTH OF 129 HIWAY EXIT ? THEY CANT CLOCK SPEEDERS OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS BUT OUT OF TOWNERS DONT KNOW THAT....THE CITY LIMIT SIGN IS CLEARLY DOWN THE ROAD FROM WHERE THEY SIT....
Could it be that they are not running radar or laser because they are not looking for speeders. An officer can sit anywhere they like as long as they are able to witness a violation inside of their jurisdiction. Did it ever cross your mind that they are not watching for speeders but possibly drug traffickers? There is no law that says the officer has to physically be inside their city at the time the violation occurs as long they can articulate that they were able to visually observe the violation inside the city.
