East AL man steals car, hits 4 cars, damages property

VALLEY, AL  (WTVM) - Valley Police were called out to Hodges Street early Tuesday morning in reference to outstanding warrants from Lee County for 21-year-old Daniel Cantrell. 

Major Mike Reynolds says police also got word of Cantrell possibly having a stolen black Ford F-250. When police arrived, Cantrell ran.

"Officers gave chase, ran through a couple of yards and about a block away Mr. Cantrell thought he could hide and officers found him." said Major Reynolds.

Canton was brought back to Hodges Street where officers were told that stolen Ford F-250 was parked a block away, at the intersection of Lee and Church Street.

Officers arrived to find the vehicle damaged on all sides. They would soon find out that was from ramming the gate of the business it was stolen from to get out.

The truck belonged to a customer of Bryan's Transmission, but it wasn't just stolen. Police say the suspect, in that truck, rammed into the gate, and the business and four other cars.  Joey Adamson, owner of Bryan's Transmission, says he'll have to pay for the damage done.

"You know it's not fair to me as a business owner but I had control of their cars and it was damaged on my property so I'm responsible."

Adamson says he believes the total damages will come out to more than $10,000 dollars worth.

Meanwhile, Cantrell already had outstanding warrants for burglary and theft out of Lee County, and now in Valley. 

Major Reynolds says, "We've got him charged with burglary, theft of property and criminal mischief."

Cantrell is being held without bond until he meets with a judge, more than likely Wednesday morning.  

If he eventually bonds out of jail, Cantrell will be turned over to the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
