- An Alabama man has been accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a church’s collection plate and deposited the money into his own account over the course of several months. Mayfair Church of Christ officials said that Gary “Tripp” Bradley III came to the front of the congregation recently and said that he had been taking money while helping out with the church’s collection plate during services. The bank at which Bradley had his account became suspicious of the deposits he had made because the checks were made out to the church. According to Huntsville police, Bradley was arrested Friday and charged with theft of property.
- One of the three suspects charged in the February shooting death of a Westin Hills Mall manager was arrested and jailed Wednesday afternoon on a heroin trafficking charge. The suspect, 20-year-old Anthony Treshun Johnson, had been initially arrested for Anthony “Tony” Alberigi’s death on February 21 with alleged accomplices Rashaan Cepadio Brown and Ronald Dewayne Weaver. All three were charged with capital murder, which was later reduced to murder. Johnson was released on a $100,000 bond in late March and put on electronic monitoring. According to court records, he was only allowed to leave home for work, court appearances, meetings with lawyers or true emergencies. Another stipulation of his bond was that he could not be arrested on any other charges. On Wednesday morning, court records show that Fairfield police obtained an arrest warrant for Johnson charging him with trafficking in heroin; the search warrant itself focused on the Dodge Charger used by Johnson during the deadly attack. After searching the car and finding a brown bag that they sent to the DEA Miami Southwest Laboratory for analysis, prosecutors were able to determine that Johnson had been carrying four or more grams of heroin in his car. He was arrested without incident and transported to the Jefferson County Jail.
