An additional charge has been filed against a Millwood man who was arrested recently in connection with a string of thefts that occurred late last month.
On July 6, Brandon Roy Hussell, 20, 137 Ivy Drive, Millwood, was charged with receiving/transferring stolen goods, two counts of grand larceny, daytime burglary, and breaking and entering, all felonies, in connection with four separate incidents that occurred on June 17, June 19, and June 20. His bond was set at $60,000.
On July 9, Hussell was arraigned by Magistrate Jacqueline Casto on an additional charge of transferring/receiving stolen property, according to documents obtained from Jackson County Magistrate Court.
Along with the additional charge came a criminal complaint that detailed the events surrounding Hussell’s arrest July 5 on a warrant that was issued as a result of one of the earlier thefts.
According to a criminal complaint, around 4:28 p.m. on July 5, Deputy B.L. Varney responded to a report of a domestic dispute on Hemlock Road between Randall Stephenson, Jeremy Wilson and Amber McCamen. Varney knew Wilson and McCamen had outstanding warrants.
The 911 caller reported the group had left in a white Chevrolet Camaro traveling on Crooked Run Road toward Cottageville.
Varney was on Route 62 and saw the vehicle at the intersection with Conrad Hill Road. When Varney stopped the vehicle, Wilson and McCamen fled on foot, the complaint states.
Varney made contact with the driver, who was identified as Hussell, and a records check turned up the outstanding warrant. Hussell was taken to the sheriff’s office for processing and the vehicle was towed by Red Barn Wrecker Service.
Later, the Jackson County 911 Center received a call from Robert Clifton Perry who reported stolen a 1997 Chevrolet Camaro.
Varney contacted Perry by phone and Perry stated he had left town the previous Friday. When he returned on July 5, he found the vehicle was missing.
Varney asked Perry if he had any idea who may have taken the vehicle and Perry said he believed it could have been Brandon Hussell as Hussell had looked at the car prior to Perry’s leaving town and Hussell wanted to purchase the car but wanted to give perry half the money at the time.
Perry stated he told Hussell to wait until he got back from his trip and he would sell him for the car for the full amount of $2,100. Varney informed Perry that the car had been recovered and Hussell was the driver.
Detective M.E. Cullen interviewed Hussell about the car. Hussell told Cullen he purchased the car from a man named Robert whose last name started with a P for 900. Hussell did not have the title or a bill of sale for the vehicle.
In the earlier thefts:
• Hussell is accused breaking into a relative’s home June 17 and stealing approximately $200 in coins and approximately $2,000 dollars in cash, along with a 410-gauge single-shot shotgun and a box of 410 shotgun shells.
• Sometime between June 18 and June 19, Hussell allegedly stole a black 1993 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck from a residence on Paw Paw Lane in Cottageville. Police said they identified Hussell driving the vehicle in security camera footage from a local retailer, which result in the issuing of the warrant on which Hussell was arrested July 5.
• Also on June 19, Hussell allegedly stole an all-terrain vehicle from a residence on Antioch Road.
• Finally, on June 20, Hussell allegedly stole items from an outbuilding on Baier Ridge Road in Cottageville.
