Carroll County Sheriff’s Reports


Warrant, Drugs — Kenneth Ray Beckham, 35, of 1450 Dollar Hill Road, Huntingdon, was arrested on an outstanding warrant during a January 27 traffic stop in Lavinia.

According to the report by Deputy Dakota R. Meier, he pulled over a vehicle driven by Beckham on Spring Hill Road for a light law violation at around 12:45 a.m. A computer check of Beckham’s license showed an outstanding warrant out of Milan. Meier then took Beckham into custody and was transporting him to the county line to be turned over to the Milan Police Department when other deputies who had been at the traffic stop contacted Meier and advised him that they found a baggie containing a clear crystal-like substance and an empty baggie on the ground near where Beckham had been placed in the back of Meier’s patrol car.

High-Speed Pursuit — Rico Javon Fuller, 36, of Jackson was charged with evading arrest, reckless driving, and speeding following a January 29 high-speed pursuit in Cedar Grove.

According to the report by Deputy Steven Scott, he attempted to pull over a vehicle driven by Fuller for speeding on Highway 70, but Fuller did not stop and Scott pursued. Scott noted that Fuller was driving recklessly and reached speeds of over 100 mph. The pursuit ended when Fuller lost control of his vehicle and crashed. Scott placed Fuller under arrest.

Firearm Theft — Tristian Shawnlynn Hood, 19, of 457 Forrest Avenue, McKenzie, was charged with theft under $1,000 and unlawful possession of a firearm during a January 30 traffic stop in Huntingdon.

Deputy Steven Scott reported that he pulled over a vehicle in which Hood was a passenger for a light law violation. While speaking with the driver, Scott detected the odor of marijuana, and during a subsequent search of the vehicle, the deputy found a Springfield XD nine-millimeter pistol with an estimated value of $450. A computer check of the gun’s serial number showed that it had been stolen in 2013 in McKenzie.

Tires Slashed — Sarah Wortham of Huntingdon told deputies on January 28 that someone slashed all four tires on her vehicle, which was parked in front of her residence on Wortham Loop.
