Cumby Man Allegedly Caught Stealing Cooler

Smiley face

A 23-year-old was allegedly caught stealing a cooler Thursday, according to police reports.

Cumby Police Chief Paul Robertson reported spotting the Cumby man around 11 a.m. December 10, 2020 outside a West Main Street residence struggling to remove a cable attaching a cooler to the bed of a pickup.

Robertson in arrest reports wrote that he recognized the man as a “known thief and drug user.” The police chief noted the man was at a residence that was not the man’s address and in which the resident is typically not home at that time of day.

After contacting the 23-year-old, Robertson confirmed the man not only did not have permission to remove the cooler from the truck bed, but he didn’t have permission to even be on the property. Based on those findings, Robertson concluded the 23-year-old Cumby man was committing a vehicle burglary.

Robertson alleged in arrest reports that during a conversation with the burglary suspect, the man “admitted he was in the commission of stealing the cooler to trade for dope.”

Consequently, the 23-year-old Cumby man was arrested on a Class A misdemeanor burglary of a vehicle charge. He spent the night in Hopkins County jail and was released Friday on a $1,000 bond on the charge.

Thursday was the 23-year-old Cumby man’s third time to be booked into Hopkins County jail this year. He was also arrested July 5 for public intoxication (his third Hopkins County PI arrest in 3 years) and Aug. 11 for possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana.

KSST does not publish the photos or names of people charged with misdemeanor crimes in staff generated reports, only those accused of felony offenses.
