One suspect has been arrested following two burglaries that occurred December 11- 12, 2017 at a property on Highway 59 North in Tenaha. Two additional suspects have been identified and warrants have been issued for their arrest.
On Dec. 11 two suspects entered a building on the property removing various tools, welding machine and a 4-wheeler. On Dec, 12, one of the suspects returned to the property with the third suspect and forcefully entered the home. During the course of the burglary of habitation, it appeared that a chain was hooked to a large safe which was then pulled through the front door of the home causing structural damage. The suspects also took two televisions.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) released video surveillance and photographs of the suspects on their website, Facebook page and to media stations across the area. Within a few days, the Panola County Sheriff’s Office contacted the SCSO with a positive identification of one suspect. She was identified as Kiesha Allred, 36 of Henderson.
On Dec. 14, SCSO Investigator Carmen Fears interviewed Allred at the Panola County Sheriff’s Office. Allred explained how the burglaries occurred and confessed to her involvement in the situation. At that point, Allred was served two warrants, arrested at the Panola County Sheriff’s Office and transported to the SCSO.
Allred was arraigned by Shelby County Justice of the Peace Pct. 5 Mike Crouch. She posted bonds totaling $55,000 and was released the same day.
The PCSO played a huge role in helping the SCSO with this case. PCSO recovered the majority of the stolen property from two of the suspect’s respective residences which has been returned to the property owner.
The SCSO is once again asking for help from the community. Suspects Antoine Pierce and Aaron Jeffery are wanted in connection with this case. Pierce has an active warrant for burglary of a habitation and burglary of a building. Jeffery is wanted for burglary of a building. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of these two individuals, please contact SCSO Chief Deputy Kevin Windham at (936) 572-1972 or (936) 598-5601.
