New Release


An unknown caller stops thieves from robbing the residence at 450 Highway 300.

Chief Deputy Ray Byrd responded to the call and as he arrived he witnessed three individuals running from the back door of the residence, the suspects ran into the woods.  The caller identified the male suspect to be Ricky Peoples (48 yrs old) of Houston.  Chief Deputy Byrd pursued the individuals into the woods losing sight of them he returned to the residence and patrolled the area.   Byrd found one of the females, Penny Robertson (53 yrs old) of Houston walking down Highway 300 wearing clothing matching that of the one of the fleeing females.  Also Ms. Robertson was covered in wet muddy shoes and begger lice stuck to her pants legs.  Ms. Robertson was taken into custody and transported to The Perry County Detention Center. 


Byrd found Peoples truck parked down a Game and Fish Archery road that is located just south of the residence that was broken into.  Then Byrd patrolled towards a residence on Hwy 216 directly east of the residence in question where he found Ricky Peoples in the yard talking to an individual, Byrd immediately arrested Peoples. Peoples was covered in mud and begger lice as well.


A couple hours later Chief Deputy Byrd received a tip that his third suspect Sarah McKenzie (29 yrs old) of Houston was at a residence on Mockingbird Lane.  Upon arrival McKenzie was arrested without further incident.


Thanks to the caller and quick response of Chief Deputy Byrd the burglars didn’t get away with anything, they had only gotten some of the property to the back door of residence when Byrd pulled up to the residence.


All three were charged with Residential Burglary class B Felony, and Criminal Attempt of Theft class B Misdemeanor
