One person is in custody following a rash of auto burglaries over the past week.

Demarqushon Hinton, of Halls, was arrested late Sunday, March 15 as the Crockett County Sheriff’s Department, Alamo Police Department and Bells Police Department worked together to locate the individual who burglarized over 50 vehicles across the county.

Reports of ransacked vehicles and items being stolen from vehicles began to come in early Sunday, March 8 in the Maury City area.

On Tuesday, March 10, citizens in the Rainbow Circle and Cavalier Drive area of Alamo woke up to their vehicles being burglarized as well.

On Friday, March 13, nearly 30 vehicles were reported as burglarized in the area of College Street, Sunset Circle, Misty Lane and Jaycee Drive.

Items reported stolen across the county were $8 in cash, a 1911/22 handgun, binoculars, $40 in cash taken, a winning lottery ticket in an unknown amount, a GPS system and an additional weapon.

According to Crockett County Sheriff Troy Klyce, there was no evidence of forced entry in most of the vehicles, which indicates that most vehicles were unlocked.

Hinton has been charged with 21 counts of auto burglary in Alamo, 27 counts of auto burglary in Bells and will receive additional charges for at least eight vehicle burglaries in Maury City and the county.

Hinton was stopped by the Halls Police Department and was in possession of a firearm that was stolen from a car in Bells.

All agencies involved are continuing to investigate these cases.
