A purse snatcher who knocked over mailboxes while trying to flee the scene will serve three months in jail.
The thief, Jule Hall Jr., 32, of Murfreesboro entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Larry Ross to charges of theft, vandalism and reckless endangerment and was ordered to serve 90 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence and pay $1,661. The sentence will be served in addition to time he owes in Murfreesboro on other charges.
His sentence comes after police were called to Falcon Drive to investigate a call concerning downed mailboxes and damaged benches. Upon arrival, police found two destroyed mailboxes and two damaged metal park benches. A short time later police found Hall, who was staying at a home on Falcon Drive. He admitted to driving the car that did the damage.
It was then officers found evidence linking him to a purse snatching on Falcon Drive. Specifically police say he took a purse from a car while the woman was at a yard sale. The purse contained $140 and other items which were found in the suspect’s vehicle linking him to the crime.
“Contents of the purse were discovered in the vehicle that Mr. Hall was driving,” said McMinnville police investigator Todd Rowland referring to a camera belonging to the victim. “Additional property, a wallet and checkbook, were also discovered where Mr. Hall was staying.”
Restitution of $726 for the damaged items has been ordered in addition to Hall’s jail time.
