Russellville man indicted for theft

A Russellville man was indicted by the November grand jury for allegedly breaking into a neighbor’s house and stealing a cell phone.

Timothy La Drake Dinsmore, 18, 707 Beech St., Russellville, was indicted for second-degree theft of property, attempted second-degree theft of property, public intoxication and two counts of second-degree burglary, Franklin County District Attorney Joey Rushing said.

According to Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett, officers received a call during the early morning hours of July 7 that there had been a break-in on Beech Street in Russellville.

Hargett said the victim stated he was awakened by a subject who was standing next to his bed and he noticed the subject had his personal cell phone in his hand.

Police investigator Lt. Scotty Lowery said the victim recognized the person as one of his neighbors and took him across the street to his house.

“The man told the suspect’s family what had happened and that he intended to call the police,” Lowery said.

“When Mr. Dinsmore found out the police were on their way, he fled the scene on foot.”

Lowery said later in the morning, Dinsmore was located passed out on a bench at a local apartment complex.

Officers discovered Dinsmore was intoxicated and initially arrested him for public intoxication.

Lowery said after questioning, Dinsmore was also charged with burglary and theft stemming from the earlier incident.

Rushing said Dinsmore’s case would be placed on the April criminal trial docket.
