Atmore And Bratt Burglaries Solved, Guns Recovered; Arrests Made

April 17, 2019

Authorities in two states say they have solved multiple burglaries in the area, and two people are now behind bars.

The Atmore Police Department, Escambia County (FL) Sheriff’s Office and the Alabama Drug Enforcement Task Force executed a search warrant at a residence on Harris Street in Atmore on Monday.

Jylyn Kevon Cooper, 18, was taken into custody at the scene of the search and charged with receiving stolen property fourth degree, receiving stolen property second degree, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Atmore Police Department. A unnamed 17-year old juvenile was also charged with receiving stolen property third degree.

The charges stemmed from multiple burglaries in the Atmore area, according to Atmore Police Chief Chuck Brooks. He said authorities also recovered multiple stolen guns from a house on Brown Street.

Multiple weapons and rare coins were recovered from the Atmore burglaries and two burglaries that occurred April 12 on McElhaney Road in Bratt.

Most of the items stolen from McElhaney Road in Florida were recovered in Atmore, according to Major Andrew Hobbs of the Escambia County (FL) Sheriff’s Office. He said Tuesday the agency was seeking arrest warrants in connection with the case.

Authorities said the burglaries may be connected to at least one burglary outside Atmore in Escambia County, AL.

    This young thief needs to learn a early lesson. Get a Job, pull your pants up, get a Hair Cut. The worst thing in a neighborhood is a THIEF.

    REGARDING:
    “From what I read there, none of that requires encoding to avoid monitoring. Maybe a link from there, maybe not. I remember when Sheriff Morgan switched to encoding to keep others from knowing anything he didn’t personally approve. He may have been justified but never claimed it was mandated.”

    I never said the FCC required encoding. But many times what is conceived as “encoded radio traffic” is just the fact that the FCC required a narrowing bandwidth a few years ago and many agencies switching from analog to digital. The result is that many private radio scanners will no longer be formatted to receive the signals.

    AC for reading comprehension.

    A good way to get shot dead.

    I keep my weapons in a safe, but if I walk in and catchyou in my home, I will shoot you on the spot.

    “I believe that the “encoded radio traffic” was a mandate by the FCC a few years ago. This was not a concerted effort by police agencies to prevent the general public from listening to radio traffic, it’s just the FCC mandate to change bandwidth and converting to digital from analog formats.

    Due to persistent communication, observant neighbors, surveillance cameras and diligent law enforcement, thieves will be filmed and photographed more in the future. Hopefully, this will eliminate someone being shot or killed.

    Get a job kid before you find yourself in prison for the rest of your life. Quit taking things that don’t belong to you from hard working people.

    Were we informed of burglaries in the Bratt area?
    Since police agencies have encoded radio traffic, the public can no longer listen in and be abreast of goings on.
    There are burglaries, manhunts, and such and we rarely hear of it in a timely manner.
    William does post breaking news, but unless one has the social media engaged every waking minute, the news is after the fact.

    Real credit goes to a neighborhood watch. But thank you Chuck for following up and doing a great job. ECSO could learn a few things from Chuck in my opinion.
