More Arrests In Investigation of County Burglaries

NgyuenTwo adults and one juvenile were arrested Sunday as Hopkins County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigators continue to apprehend those responsible for a rash of burglaries in the county. As of early Monday morning, the trio had been tied to four of the burglaries and the county CID thought other burglaries will also be solved with this arrest. Tuesday morning, Hopkins County Criminal Investigator Lewis Tatum said his department continues to sort through items recovered from burglaries and are finding items that the owners did not know had been taken.

Lewis told KSST news that the latest arrest of this trio along with the arrest of James Alexander Pringle, 24, of Quitman last week would conclude the investigation. However, he now thinks that there are more individuals or groups involved in the burglaries that have recently spread across the county.

Saphire Finney (1)Zachary Van Nguyen, 20, and Sapphire Finney, 18, were arrested for engaging in organized criminal activity related to four burglaries in the south part of Hopkins County. Tuesday morning Nguyen was arraigned on two counts of organized criminal activity and bond was set at $40,000 on one and $25,000 on the other. Finney’s bond on two counts of organized criminal activity was set at $40,000 each. The juvenile involved in the case was placed in juvenile custody in Greenville.

James Alexander Pringle, 24, was arrested by Hopkins County Sheriff’s officers assisted by Quitman law enforcement Friday. According to Hopkins County Criminal Investigator Lewis Tatum, Pringle, who was living in a shed in Quitman, has been identified as one of the individuals who have been burglarizing homes and autos in the county. Pringle’s activity was identified as specifically in the Peerless area.  Saturday morning Justice of the Peace Brad Cummings set bond for Pringle at $20,000 for Burglary of a Habitation.
