Jefferson County deputies make arrests in rash of burglaries

Posted: Updated:


Four people are facing charges after a rash of burglaries in Jefferson County.  

Investigators say a 31-year-old Sumiton woman is facing burglary charges. Deputies were called to a burglary in progress at a house in the 7400 block of Bethel Road in Dora Tuesday. When they arrived, they talked to the victim who told them he had gone done into his basement and found a woman he did not know inside his wife's car. The woman was taking money out of the center console. She told the victim she was supposed to be there to pick up money, but could not say who gave her permission. She took off in a car parked in the driveway. The victim tried to stop her, but she  put the car in reverse and backed up with him hold on. The victim suffered a cut on his leg and was able to reach inside and turn off the car. The woman then took off on foot. Deputies later found Misty Nicole Warren running down the road nearby. She is charged with burglary second-degree, theft of property third-degree and reckless endangerment. She remains in Jefferson County jail.

A Forestdale man is also facing burglary charges. Deputies were called to a burglary in progress at a house in the 2200 block of Arcadia Road in Forestdale. The victim told deputies he had received a phone call from his alarm company telling him that the burglar alarm had been activated. He was only a short distance away and directly went to his house. As he pulled up, he saw three people running from his house. He noticed his front door had been broken and chased the three. They got into a blue SUV and drove away. The victim went inside to find his television and other items stolen. He told deputies he recognized one of the men. Deputies later arrested 19-year-old Daven Witherspoon at his house and charged him with the burglary.

Two men are behind bars charged with a burglary in Center Point. Deputies were called to a report of a residential burglary in the 2800 block of 9th Street Northeast in Center Point Monday afternoon. A neighbor heard his dog barking and looked out to see a green Lincoln Town Car driving slowly down the street. The car stopped in front of the house across the street, then backed into the driveway. A suspect exited the house carrying a large television and placed it in the truck. The neighbor called 911 and went to confront the suspects. When confronted, the suspects drove away and others left on foot. The neighbor obtained cell phone video of the suspects and photos were given to deputies. On Wednesday, deputies located the car at a house on 5th Street Northeast. Detectives went to the house and asked for permission to search the stolen property. While searching, detectives found evidence of a car breakin that was committed last November. 20-year-old Kevin Yelling and 19-year-old Zorrell Collins were inside the house and taken to the sheriff's office. Yelling told detectives that his friend Zorrell Collins had broken into the house on 9th Street Northeast on Monday and called him to pick him up. He says Collins placed the television in the trunk of the car. Yelling was arrested and charged with third-degree burglary and theft of property. He posted bond and is out of jail. Collins was arrested and charged with burglary third-degree and theft of property. He is still in the Jefferson County jail.
