DTL STAFF REPORT

A juvenile joins two adults in being charged in connection with a string of vehicle burglaries in the last two weeks.

The juvenile was picked up Tuesday after being spotted walking down the street, according to Det. Ramirez Ivy.

The two adults — Justyn McNutt, 26, and Kourtni Sullivan, 29 — were arrested Friday and charged with four counts of vehicle burglary stemming from the incidents, one of which occurred when medical materials were stolen from a car at the Hampton Inn and others involving vehicles at homes on Broad, Tournament and Court streets.

The juvenile is charged with five counts, according to police.

Some items have been recovered, but police aren’t saying what, citing the ongoing investigation.

Ivy said at least one more case may be involved based on recovered items.

Meanwhile, police continue to investigate an early morning shooting Saturday that resulted in one person being treated and another arrested after a large amount of drugs and cash were confiscated.

Police have said masked bandits forced their way into the home at 389 Little St. and tried to rob three people in what police have described as a drug-related robbery attempt. One of the three was shot during the confrontation and treated at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle. He was released but later returned to the hospital with complications.

That happened at about 1:20 a.m. Saturday. Later that morning, 32-year-old Demarkis Walker, of 389 Little St., was charged with felony possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance which was heroin.

Investigators have released few other details about the shooting or possible suspects.

Anyone with information on either the burglaries or the shooting should call Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 800-530-7151. The information could lead to a reward.
