                                                        Burglary, Meth and Escape Arrest


Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:


            On October 28th DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies and Henagar Police Department went to a resident on Andrew Lee Drive in Henagar to serve warrants on Larry Lebron Tidwell, 34 of Henagar. When Deputies and Police officers got to the resident they found Tidwell hiding under a bed and found methamphetamine on his person. At which time Tidwell was arrested and was placed in the back of the patrol car. Deputies and Police officers noticed some tools in the back of a truck Tidwell had been driving, the tools looked like some that had been reported stolen from a business in Henagar earlier in the week. While Deputies and Police officers were at the truck, Tidwell kicked out the back window of the patrol car and ran. A search for Tidwell was initiated but Tidwell was not found.

            On November 22nd morning the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received a tip of Tidwell’s whereabouts. When deputies made contact with Tidwell, he was arrested on warrants for Receiving Stolen Property 1st, Theft of Property 4th, Criminal Mischief 3rd, Escape 3rd and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

            Sheriff Harris says “We appreciate Henagar Police Department for working together with us on this case. Once again we appreciate the citizens for calling in tips that led to this arrest. Please continue to call in tips to the website or to the office at (256) 845-3801.”
