On Tuesday, June 1, a residence on Willow Pond Road was burglarized with several items taken which were valued at over $700.00. An alert neighbor observed a black male walking from the residence and called the Sheriffs Office. The neighbor continued to watch the black male as he walked south along a wooded fence line until he was picked up on Thompson Road by a red Mustang.
When deputies arrived, with the neighbor’s help the stolen property was recovered from where it had been placed along the wooded fence line. Deputies were also able to identify the black male as Maurice James Curry, and the driver of the red Mustang as Michael Garyn Bryan.
On Thursday June 3, Curry turned himself into custody at the Sherriff’s Office and was subsequently transported to the Jackson County Correctional Facility. He was charged with Burglary of a Dwelling and Grand Theft.
On Friday, June 4th, Bryan was arrested without incident by sheriff deputies, and transported to the Jackson County Correctional Facility. Bryan was charged with being a Principal to Burglary of a Dwelling and Grand Theft.
