CULLMAN – Three local men were arrested this week in connection to multiple vehicle thefts. The Cullman County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) said Jacky Lee Nunnelley, 43, of Holly Pond; Tyler Mark Hankins, 23, of Fairview; and Alexander Douglas Quick, 23, of Cullman were each charged with first-degree theft of property. Nunnelley and Hankins were also charged with first-degree receiving stolen property.

According to the CCSO, the investigation that led to the arrests began several weeks ago when a work truck was stolen from behind the old Piggly Wiggly at the construction site of the new Cullman Fire Rescue station on Alabama Highway 157.

During the investigation, said a statement from the CCSO, it was determined that the three suspects were involved in at least four vehicle thefts. From there, all three suspects were located and arrested over the course of two days, Thursday, March 2 and Friday, March 3, 2018; the stolen vehicles were located and returned to the owners.

“I am thankful we were able to recover the stolen vehicles and get them back to the owners and also that these thieves are now sitting in jail where they belong,” said Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry. “I would also like to thank the investigators who worked long hours on this case and were able catch these suspects.”

The CCSO said additional charges may be pending as the investigation continues.

All three suspects are being held in the Cullman County Detention Center: Quick on a $10,000 property bond, and Nunnelley and Hankins each on a $20,000 property bond.
