Man ar­rested with bur­glary tools

Passenger also ar­rested with pre­scrip­tion drugs

The Covington News - - Crime and courts -

Af­ter sev­eral homes in de­vel­op­ing neigh­bor­hoods were found bur­glar­ized in re­cent months, deputies from the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment have stepped up pa­trols in those ar­eas in an at­tempt to quell the thefts — a de­ci­sion that paid off re­cently in one par­tic­u­lar sub­di­vi­sion.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports from the NCSO, a deputy was on pa­trol in a new sub­di­vi­sion off Salem Road on Satur­day evening when he no­ticed a sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle with one man and two women parked on the side of the road.

The deputy made con­tact with the man in the car, iden­ti­fied as 31-year-old Michael Eu­gene In­gle, and found the man had a war­rant out­stand­ing in Rock­dale County. In­gle was placed un­der ar­rest at that time and the deputy re­port­edly made con­tact with two fe­males who were still in­side the sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle.

While speak­ing with the women, the deputy al­legedly no­ticed bolt cut­ters, pry bars, gloves and cop­per shav­ings ly­ing on the floor in the ve­hi­cle. Since the ve­hi­cle was not reg­is­tered to In­gle, the owner was con­tacted, and when he ar­rived at the scene he re­port­edly told the deputy the tools did not be­long to him. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing this in­for­ma­tion from the ve­hi­cle owner, In­gle was ad­di­tion­ally charged with pos­ses­sion of bur­glary tools, drugs/medicine pre­pared only by a reg­is­tered phar­ma­cist and pills to be kept in orig­i­nal con­tainer and trans­ferred to the New­ton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

Also placed un­der ar­rest was one of the fe­males, 39-year-old Bar­bara Ann Day. She was trans­ferred to the New­ton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter and re­ceived a charge of drugs to be kept in orig­i­nal con­tainer (Soma, a mus­cle re­lax­ant), pos­ses­sion of a tool dur­ing the com­mis­sion of a crime and pos­sess­ing drugs/medicine pre­pared only by a reg­is­tered phar­ma­cist.
