Three Roselawn properties burglarized

NATCHEZ — In the past week, there have been three burglaries in the Roselawn subdivision, and in the latest incident the Natchez Police Department has made an arrest.

Lt. Craig Godbold said two houses on Marquette Street had been burglarized on back-to-back days, and in connection with Wednesday’s crime police arrested Tory Lamond McNeil on charges of burglary of a dwelling.

“The homeowner came home, and saw the guy run out his back door,” Godbold said. “The homeowner was able to identify the suspect because he had seen McNeil walking around the neighborhood before.”

Through the homeowner’s statement, officers were able to track McNeil, 21, to his residence at 2830 Little St., which is in the Roselawn neighborhood.

Godbold said $145 worth of goods had been taken, including a black crucifix chain, earrings, vodka and hydrocodone pills. Officers have not recovered any of the items.

Godbold said McNeil allegedly broke a window out of the back door to open the lock and enter the residence. The homeowner came home at 6:18 p.m. and reportedly saw McNeil running out his backdoor.

On Tuesday, a flat screen TV valued at $2,000 was stolen from the house across the street.

Earlier in the week, a house on Miller Avenue was burglarized.

Godbold said McNeil could become a suspect in the other crimes.
