Suspect arrested for multiple construction site thefts

Posted

FOLEY - During the months of March and April, multiple breaking and entering incidents occurred within the Myrtlewood Subdivision in Foley. Many sites are under construction, which resulted in the theft of multiple appliances from the sites.

During an attempted theft on Cherrywood Drive, the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department, assisted by Foley Police Department, arrested James Sylvester Weston, Sr. (64). A second suspect left on foot. Officers pursued the suspect, but were unable to locate him. Upon further investigation, officers were able to locate brand new appliances in the suspect’s home, which they believe to be the appliances stolen from the construction site.

Weston was charged with possession of burglars’ tools, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft of property 4th degree, and a driving while revoked warrant. He has since been released from jail on a $2,500 bond.

The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department is further investigating the incident and the location of the second suspect.
