Corinth Police Department Capt. Dell Green confirmed Jonathan Hicks, 42, is currently in custody. Hicks was a wanted subject in a residential burglary which occurred Jan. 26 at a home on Minor Road, where firearms were taken.
Bond has not yet been set, said Green.
Hicks’ arrest comes on the heels of the Wednesday arrest of Benjamin Kane Hicks, 30, who was also wanted for the same burglary. Another individual arrested Wednesday was Brenda Burks, 44, the owner of the Pinecrest Circle home from which Benjamin Hicks was extracted. Burks was charged with two felonies — assault on a police officer and rendering criminal assistance for harboring Benjamin Hicks.
Shootings suspects remain at large
Green provided updates on two local shootings from earlier this week.
There are still no suspects in the drive by shooting of Quantavious Fernando, 17. Fernando was shot in the Dorsey Street area around 10 p.m. Monday evening. He was treated and released from Magnolia Regional Health Center after being shot in the leg. Green said the victim wasn’t very cooperative, and the case is currently at a dead end.
Jamar Allen, 30, is still at large. He is the suspect in a second shooting which occurred on Monday morning. According to police, Allen is wanted in connection to a shooting of two individuals at 2:30 a.m. Monday at 1219 Mitchell Street.
He is a 30-year-old black male standing approximately 6 feet tall and weighing 145 pounds. The police department is also seeking him in connection with a prior assault case. Allen had been at the Mitchell Street residence prior to the shooting, and a physical altercation occurred. He returned later and fired shots into the home, striking the two victims. With another individual, Allen is accused of assaulting and holding a subject against his will on Dec. 21.
The second suspect, Terence Alexander, 28, of Cass Street, was arrested on Jan. 31.
