On Friday, June 3, 2011, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into the theft of a Case 450 dozer that had been located abandoned in a creek bottom.  The dozer was located on the north side of Freeman Road near Hayfield Lane, south of Alford.  Through the course of the investigation it was determined that the dozer was taken from a lot on Campbell Circle in the Highlands Community located behind Compass Lake.  It was discovered that four individuals had loaded the dozer onto a trailer and drove away from the property.  The suspects then drove to the end of McDuff Drive where they removed a metal gate and drove south down a utility company easement.  The subject’s truck and trailer became stuck at which time they unloaded the dozer and used it to free the vehicle.  The subjects continued to drive the dozer down the easement until they reached the creek bed.  While attempting to cross the creek one of the dozer tracks came loose and the dozer became stuck in the mud.  Several interviews were conducted which lead to the arrest of three of the four suspects.

Arrested for grand theft were:

Anthony Shawn Bass

W/M – 34 years old

On June 7, 2011, Investigators with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office arrested Anthony Shawn Bass and James Melvin and transported them to the Jackson County Correctional Facility to awate first appearance.  Paul Fuder was arrested later that day by the Bay County Sheriff’s Office and transported to the Bay County Jail.

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- On the cusp of VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor's trial in a federal vote-buying case, his attorneys have asked a judge to dismiss all of the charges based on instructions given to the grand jury.

McGregor's lawyers argued in the motion that grand jurors were not instructed on legal requirements for a campaign contribution to be considered a bribe. There must be an explicit "quid pro quo" deal to take some official action in exchange for the money, defense lawyers wrote.

"There is certainly room for grave doubt in this case about whether a grand jury would have brought these charges if it had been instructed on the law of quid pro quo by prosecutors who understood and accepted the concept of that element," lawyers wrote in the motion filed this week.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Some Fultondale neighborhoods damaged in April's storms were not included in federal maps outlining the areas where major losses occurred, and that has barred the city from helping those residents get rid of debris, officials said Friday.

The city is asking for the excluded areas to be added to the maps. But the glitch with the satellite mapping system doesn't bode well for jurisdictions that have not yet begun removing storm wreckage from private property, Fultondale Mayor Jim Lowery said Friday.
