Crash

A New Albany man was charged with felony malicious mischief for allegedly crashing a vehicle into a shed on Shady Grove Road on Nov. 10.

New Albany police are investigating a burglary that occurred the morning of Nov. 10 at Super Saver pharmacy on West Bankhead Street.

It appears the burglary at Super Saver may be connected to two other pharmacy burglaries that occurred in Ripley and Sherman during the overnight hours, said New Albany Police Chief Chris Robertson.

There are no suspects at this time in the Super Saver burglary, which occurred around 5 a.m., the chief said.

The chief said investigators were going to review surveillance video from the pharmacy to gain more information on the crime.

It appears an undetermined amount of cash and possibly some narcotics were taken from Super Saver, Robertson said.

There was forced entry into the Super Saver building, and police responded quickly to the alarm at the business.

It is unclear how many people were involved in the burglary.

In another case, a 39-year-old New Albany man was charged with strong-armed robbery in an incident that occurred around noon on Nov. 10. The suspect, Joshua M. Powell, had bond set at $100,000.

Powell went into the laundromat on State Highway 15 and was acting suspiciously, Robertson said. Powell had a knife behind his leg, and a female inside the laundromat got scared and ran out the door, the chief said. Police were called to the scene and encountered Powell, who was arrested.

And in another case from Nov. 10, police took a report of some stolen checks. One of the checks was cashed, and there was an attempt to cash another check, Robertson said.

Two people were arrested and charged with felony false pretense. Arrested were Gavin McWilliams, 28, of New Albany, and Ryan Eaton, 24, of New Albany. A third suspect was still being sought.

In a separate case, a 19-year-old New Albany man was arrested for allegedly taking his mother’s vehicle and crashing it into a shed in the 700 block of Shady Grove Road on Nov. 10. The suspect, Wiltavion Finley, was charged with felony malicious mischief.
