Suspect Texts Homeowner from Inside Home During Theft

web posted April 22, 2014

MERRIWETHER There are reports of brilliant people posting photos of themselves either committing a burglary or posing with the loot on FaceBook only to be captured by their own evidence. A Merriwether woman called the Sheriff's Office to report she received a text from a local man she knows telling her he was in her house and taking items and was going to sell them at a pawn shop.

When she arrived home she found several items missing including a $900 iPad and a $100 Coach case, three Coach pocket books costing between $300 and $500 a piece as well as a $630 orange Michael Kors handbag. The items total $2,703 in value.

The woman told the deputy she confronted the suspect about the stolen items and he denied knowing anything and denied sending the text. When she went to his home to confront him he made threats that he was going to shoot her. She left and did not call to report the incident.

While the deputy was at the woman's house when she did call to report the thefts, the suspect called and told the victim, "she needed to leave his family alone and that she needed to die cause she was a waste of human space", the report stated the deputy overheard. The deputy then spoke to the suspect who denied any involvement before the call was terminated.

The deputy collected copies of the texts the suspect sent to the victim as evidence. 

The case remains under investigation.
