Arrest Made In Vandalized Cars Case In Memphis

One arrest has been made and additional arrests are likely in the case of vandalized cars that occurred November 8 during a Scotland County R-I varsity football game in Memphis.

According to the Scotland County Sheriff's Department, Jacob Bailey, 17, of Memphis, was arrested by the Memphis Police Department following the initial investigation. Since that time the sheriff's department has continued the investigation and indicated December 16 that additional arrests are expected following their work on the case. The Memphis Police Department did not respond to requests from the Memphis Democrat for information regarding the case.

A total of 13 vehicles were damaged that night while parked along the sidewalk at the North Elementary School. All the vehicle owners were attending the varsity football game between SCR-I and Knox County held at Tiger Stadium located behind the elementary school.

Six of the vehicles were owned by Knox County residents and six were owned by Scotland County residents while one car was from out of the area.

According to a report in the Edina Sentinel, one Knox County car, a classic 1970 Chevelle, sustained an estimated $4,800 when the vandals used a sharp object to scratch the paint along the length of the car.
