An Ozark man is in Dale County Jail on 13 counts of theft and burglary from at least eight locations.

Nashun L. Williams, 26, was arrested June 24 in connection with the burglaries and thefts that occurred between May 1 and June 23, according to Ozark Police Chief Marlos Walker.

Williams is charged with two counts of third-degree burglary, three counts of breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, one charge of first-degree theft of property, two charges of second-degree theft of property, two charges of third-degree theft of property and three charges of fourth-degree theft of property.

Walker said that items reported stolen include money, checks, firearms, medications, a variety of electronic equipment, assorted tools and lawn maintenance equipment.

Residences on James Street, Martin Street, White Avenue, Faust Avenue, Jones Street and Broad Street and the Ozark-Dale County Public Library and Dale Medical Center, all in Ozark, were targeted by Williams, Walker said.

“The Ozark Police Department developed Williams as a suspect from witnesses and security surveillance video,” he said. “The Ozark Police Department would like to thank all the victims and witnesses for their assistance in solving these crimes.”

The investigation continues, Walker said, asking any person with information to call the OPD at (334) 774-2466. “More charges could be forthcoming,” he said.
