Crime Doesn’t Pay…Especially Stealing From A FHP Cruiser

Two arrested for prowling and possession of burglary tools.
Michael Dontavious James B/M D.O.B. 04/11/1992
Terez Lamar Wallace B/M D.O.B. 06/12/1991
2923 Harrison St. Marianna, Fl. 32448

Officers with the Marianna Police Department responded to a call concerning two young black males riding bicycles in the area of Deering and Dickson streets. The caller advised Officers that the two males were looking into vehicles and appeared to be trying to open the doors on some of the vehicles in the neighborhood.

Officers conducted a search of the area but were unable to locate the individuals. Officers later received another call in the same area with the caller giving the same description the caller also stated that he observed the subjects coming out of a dark area behind some houses after the Officers departed the area. On their second response to the area, officers were able to make contact with the two subjects at the intersection of Guyton St. and Lafayette.

When Officers asked the two for identification, one subject who was later identified as Michael James, threw a small piece of broken spark plug porcelain to the ground in an attempt to conceal the object from the Officers. The Officer then observed a screw driver sticking out of the pocket of the other suspect, Terez Wallace. A thorough search of the two was conducted and Officers found a bag containing more pieces of broken spark plug porcelain which is commonly used to break window glass. The officers also recovered from Wallace an IPod which was later identified as the one taken from a marked FHP cruiser which was burglarized. The cruiser was entered by breaking out the driver’s front window while parked in Officer’s home driveway.

Both Suspects are charged with Loitering or Prowling, Possession of burglary tools, as well as Burglary of a conveyance.
