Birmingham Criminal Defender Update: Huntsville, Alabama, Police Crime Blotter

Posted by Steve Eversole | Apr 20, 2010 | 0 Comments

My years as an Alabama criminal defense attorney has given me the opportunity to represent a wide range of individuals accused of numerous criminal offenses. Birmingham, Bessemer and Tuscaloosa are just a few of the jurisdictions in which criminal trials are held on a daily basis. The following list illustrates the types of crimes that local police and prosecutors pursue on a regular basis. Many of these Huntsville crimes may be brought before local judges and magistrates for trial, deliberation as well as appeal.

North Precinct
A central heating and air conditioning unit was stolen from a home on Battle Road; while later a man was robbed of his cellphone and car keys along Blue Spring Road near Gala Drive. On Summerhill Drive, police responded to report of a theft from a parked car outside a home; a debit card with an undisclosed value, a cell phone, a digital camera and a credit card were all stolen.

South Precinct
Another vehicle was allegedly broken into at a home in the 600 block of Douglas Lane; the victim reported that 60 alprazolam tablets and 90 hydrocodone tabletswere stolen from the vehicle. A similar burglary occurred on Drake Avenue, where a bag, digital camera, textbook and three prescription medications were stolen from a parked vehicle on the 200 block of that street.

A 1998 GMC Sierra and a 2004 Dodge Stratus were stolen by deception from an undisclosed location along Memorial Parkway; the complainant told police that the theft occurred between August 6 and 7 even though the crime was just recently being reported to police.

West Precinct
A 16-year-old boy was assaulted at a school on Holmes Avenue around noontime. Later that week police discovered five small bags of powdered cocaine and a small green pill during a traffic stop at I-565 in the early morning hours. Later that same week, Police investigated the theft of a 16-foot utility trailer, 12 used catalytic converters and an undetermined amount of scrap metal from an undisclosed location along Old Alabama 20.

Two vehicles, one at a home in the 6000 block of Rime Village Drive and another at a restaurant along Sanderson Street were burglarized several days apart. The first had its radio stolen, while the owner of the vehicle at the restaurant reported that a .40-caliber handgun had been taken.
