Arrest Made in North Florence Home Invasion Case

Press Release    9/26/2012


Early in the morning hours of Monday, September 17, 2012 a male broke into an apartment in the North Florence area.  The apartment was occupied by two females.  Once inside the apartment, the suspect committed a theft and sexually assaulted one of the females. 

A second apartment in the same area was burglarized early on Friday, September 21, 2012.  This apartment was occupied by a male.  Once inside, the suspect committed a theft.

Florence detectives and officers, with the help of the Alabama Bureau of Investigation, have worked tirelessly on these cases.  We have received a great deal of information from the public and that has been critical in these cases. 

A 31 year old white male, Mitchell Blake Terry was arrested today and charged with both burglaries.  It is unknown at this time if these cases are related to cases of a similar nature.  That possible connection is currently under investigation.

“I would like to commend the hard work of our Criminal Investigations Division, our Community Policing Division, Patrol Division, and the Alabama Bureau of Investigation,” stated Florence Police Chief Ron Tyler.
