Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:


            The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received multiple anonymous phone call about possible illegal activity going on at a residence on County Road 19 in Grove Oak. On December 11th Deputies and Investigators went to the residence to check on the illegal activity. When Deputies and Investigators arrived at the residence they found Michael Jason Walter, 30 of Grove Oak and Timothy Ray Smith, 29 of Fyffe both with warrants on them. Deputies and Investigators also found Walter in possession of a firearm and three other firearms were recovered from the residence that could possibly be stolen. As a result Walter was arrested on the warrant for Probation Violation and was also charged with Felon Forbidden to Possess Firearm. Smith was also arrested on a warrant for Failure to Appear. An investigation is still ongoing on the recovery of the firearms.

            Sheriff Harris says “as deputies and investigators continue to work day and night to make cases such as these, we thank citizens for their phone calls and tips that help make these arrest possible.”
