On Sunday January 21, 2018, Walker County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a burglary of a building in the 100 block of Pool Road. Upon making contact with the victim, Deputies learned that a
barn on the property had been broken into earlier that morning.
During the investigation, it was determined that approximately $ 8,000.00 worth of tools had been stolen. Detectives were able to recover all of the stolen property using information that was provided by a witness who took a photograph of a suspicious vehicle located on the property.
On January 23, 2018, subsequent to the investigation, a warrant for Burglary of a Building was issued for 28 year old white male identified as Joshua Wayne Despain. Despain is currently out on Bond for this charge.
Walker County Sheriff Clint McRae would like to thank an alert citizen that took the time to document the suspicious vehicle and would like to remind the community to be aware and report any suspicious activity by calling your local law enforcement agency.
