Woman arrested for burglary, search continues for 2nd suspect | Crime
A months-long burglary investigation led to the arrest this week of a Strawberry woman. But police are still searching for her suspected partner in crime.
On Monday Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies arrested Jessica Huff, 38, of Strawberry for residential burglary and theft of property.
Sheriff Jody Dotson said the arrest stems from a break-in on May 11 in which two firearms, cash and a 2004 Ford Mustang were taken.
The homeowner identified Huff and Grant Larson as possible suspects, Dotson said.
The car was found abandoned in Davenport, Iowa, on May 23.
Dotson said Larson and Huff were apparently “involved in a domestic dispute and had fled the area leaving the Mustang behind.”
All of the information was presented to a judge and arrest warrants were issued for Huff and Larson.
On September 2 deputies located Huff and arrested her.
She is currently being held in the Lawrence County Jail in lieu of $7,500 bond. Huff is scheduled to appear in Circuit Court on September 30.
A warrant is still active for Larson, Dotson said.
