On Sunday, November 14, Marianna Police Officers responded to the parking lot of the First Baptist Church/ Regions Bank, in reference to the report of a car burglary. Upon Officers arrival, it was found that an unknown subject had busted the side window out of a Cadillac in the parking lot and a blue purse had been stolen from the vehicle.
Officers immediately began to canvas the area in an attempt to locate the stolen purse. While Officers were searching for the purse, they observed a white Ford truck pulling out of the North parking lot of the church. Officers were advised by a witness that the occupants of the vehicle had also broken into another vehicle in the parking lot. Officers with the Marianna Police Department were able to apprehend the vehicle on Highway 90, in front of the Hinson House Bed and Breakfast. During the investigation of the burglaries, the two subjects in the vehicle, Christina Sisco and Ronald Hughes, were positively identified as being the subjects that burglarized the vehicle in the North parking lot of the church.
The victim of the second vehicle which was burglarized in the north parking lot had a pink Vera Bradley purse stolen out of their vehicle. Thanks to a cooperative and honest citizen of the City of Marianna, both purses were located at the intersection of Wynn Street and Lafayette Street. The purses were thrown out of the vehicle prior to Police making the stop.
