Montgomery's Most Wanted


By Ellis Eskew

CBS 8 and ABC Montgomery are taking action against crime. We are teaming up with law enforcement and Crimestoppers to help bring the crime rate down.

We need your help.

Tony Garrett with Montgomery area Crimestoppers tells us there are 3 top cases that
need to be solved.

Starting with Donald Mitchell. He is wanted for questioning in a theft of property case that happened on December 11th.

Crimestoppers also is searching for the individuals who broke into Capital Tractor.
Surveillance video shows 3 or 4 unknown males walking onto Capital Tractor located on Furnace Street in Montgomery.
Police say they stole all-terrain vehicles and lawn mowers costing up to 72 thousand dollars.

"72 thousand dollars worth of property from one business is enough to put a big dent in their payroll, amount of income they put into city taxes," said Garrett.

Also, Garrett says some of the most wanted criminals broke into a high school.
 Police say they broke into Robert E. High School Monday Feb. 17 and stole several laptops and an overhead projector.
     They say the burglars appear to have good knowledge of the layout of the school.
    They both wore bandanas, hats and hooded sweatshirts, even mocked the camera at times.

"They need to be taken into custody. That would be one of the major ones. That's tax payer money. I mean, we have to pay. It comes out of our pockets for that," said Garrett.

Garrett says they depend on your help in catching all of these subjects.

"It's very important when investigators are trying to solve a case. They are looking for that community involvement. You don't have community involvement, the majority of cases that they are working on go unsolved. When you have community involvement, you have the majority solved, easily," said Garrett.

If you have any information on these cases, please call Crimestoppers at 215-STOP.

Your tip could lead to up to a one thousand dollar reward.
