Arrest made in ’08 thefts with fingerprint ID
DOWNTOWN JACKSON — Thanks to a fingerprint left at a crime scene, Jackson police have arrested a man accused of stealing two snack machines six years ago. Kenneth Eugene Curry is accused of taking a truck from Graham Snack Foods on Aug. 17, 2008. The truck had three vending machines in the bed, according to police, and one of the machines was left at the site. When the truck was recovered in the area of Hamilton Street and East Chester Street, the two remaining snack machines, valued at $3,000, were missing. Fingerprints were recovered and checked through the FBI database where a match was made with Curry, according to court documents. Curry is charged with theft of property over $1,000. He is being held in lieu of $30,000 bond and is scheduled to appear at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 9 for a preliminary hearing.
