Suspects still at large in Eutaw

Officers from the Eutaw Police Department and the Greene County Sheriff’s Department continue to search for the suspect in two recent crimes.

The most recent incident is an attempted burglary Saturday morning at 12:33 a.m. at the Branco service station on Boligee Street.

The suspect, Demetrius “Meat” Stewart, was discovered in the act by a neighbor and dropped the items he was attempting to steal as he fled in a vehicle, said Eutaw Police Chief Reginald Spencer.

The vehicle was abandoned at King Village, and the suspect is still at large.

There was damage to a window and a door at the service station.

Stewart is also suspected in the breaking and entering March 2 of a vehicle parked at King Village.

Jessie Burton reported to the Sheriff’s Department that a $300 CD player had been taken from her vehicle parked at King Village.

Approximately $125 damage had been done to the window of the vehicle and $350 damage to the dash.

Surprisingly, the suspect came to the victim’s apartment March 5 trying to sell her CD player as well as other items suspected to have been stolen.

The CD player was recovered, and a warrant was issued for Stewart.
