The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department made an arrest Thursday in a recent burglary investigation.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says detectives from the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department arrested 33 year old Robert Howard Mattox of Keltonburg Road Smithville for aggravated burglary and theft of property over $1,000. According to Sheriff Ray, Mattox entered a home on Green Hill Road in DeKalb County and took several guns, knives, and ammunition valued at over $3,707. Detectives were able to recover all of the stolen property. Due to Mattox's lengthy criminal history for property crimes, his bond was set at $125,000 and he will appear in court on October 23rd. Mattox is on parole out of Meigs County.

Meanwhile, 46 year old Tina Keith Stephens of Allen Street, Smithville was arrested Saturday by the Smithville Police Department and was being booked into the DeKalb County Jail when correctional officers found a white pill believed to be a soma. Stephens was charged with introduction of drugs into a penal institution and her bond was set at $5,000. She will appear in court on November 20th.

Last Wednesday, deputies spotted 35 year old Kathyerine Michelle Carr of Kings Court Trailer Park driving an automobile on Adcock Cemetery Road. Officers had prior knowledge of Carr having a suspended license. She was stopped and arrested for driving on a suspended license. Carr's license was revoked after she failed to satisfy a citation on July 7th in Smith County. Carr was also arrested for the same offense earlier by the Smithville Police Department. Carr's bond was set at $1,500 and her court date is October 30th.
