The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department has apparently solved a rash of recent burglaries in the Lakeview Mountain Estates area with the arrest of a 23 year old Smithville man.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says Kenny Waymon Dyal, Jr. of Floyd Drive, Smithville is accused of breaking into a total of fifteen homes between March 30th and July 10th. He is formally charged with fourteen cases of aggravated burglary, twelve cases of theft of property, and one count of vandalism.
Dyal was arrested last Monday, July 12th and he appeared for a bond hearing in General Sessions Court on Thursday, July 15th where Judge Bratten Cook, II doubled his bond to $1-million, 070-thousand dollars. Dyal will be back in General Sessions Court on July 29th.
Sheriff Ray says all these break-ins were assigned to a detective to investigate. Dyal was later identified as a suspect in the case and was arrested. According to Sheriff Ray, Dyal has admitted to committing all the break-ins, some of which were at weekend homes, and others at permanent residences.
Some of the items taken in the burglaries have been recovered. If you have purchased anything from Dyal or believe you may have bought something that you suspect may be stolen, Sheriff Ray is asking you to contact the Sheriff's Department at 597-4935 to let officers check it out to make sure.
