The Coffee County Sheriff’s Office made arrests in regards to a theft ring. Pictured, top row from left, are Michael Odom and Teresa Spears. Bottom row, from left, are Megan Hixson and Bradley Moore.

On Aug. 12, investigators from the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant on a property in the Chestnut Grove Community in Coffee County in connection to theft and burglary.

Investigators recovered multiple stolen items from previous theft and burglary reports, including items from reports in Brundidge and Abbeville. Through contact with the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office in Hammond, La., investigators were also able to locate a number of other stolen items from Coffee and Pike Counties.

The investigation originally began when patrol officers with the Elba Police Department located a stolen vehicle and investigators with EPD began locating stolen property and arresting suspects in the case as the investigation continued.

This resulted in the creation of a joint investigation between multiple jurisdictions, including the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office, Elba Police Department, Henry County Sheriff’s Office, Pike County Sheriff’s Office, Brundidge Police Department and Tangiapahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office (La.).

Arrested in the case were Michael Scott Odom, 46, of Jack; Teresa Darlene Spears, 48, of Jack; Meagan Nicole Hixson, 25, of Navarre, Fla., and Bradley Wayne Moore, 40, of Delano, Calif. All four suspects are facing multiple counts of receiving stolen property.
