Cleabron (pronounced “CLAY-burn”) Ray King, 35, is charged with five counts of theft of property 4th degree, possession of a controlled substance (meth), possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting arrest. He is held in the Limestone County Jail on $9500 bond.
If you have had a package stolen in Limestone County between June 6 and June 10th and have not made a report, please contact the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office at 256-232-0111 for Investigator Durden. The case remains under investigation, and additional charges may be filed.
Over the weekend, the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office received several complaints of packages being stolen from porches. They say that several residential and business security cameras captured the suspect stealing items, and he was observed by several witnesses.
With the assistance of the community and many social media posts, the suspect was quickly identified as Cleabron Ray King. After receiving a tip that King was spotted at a local recycling business, they found King in the parking lot and advised him he had warrants and was under arrest.
According the sheriff’s office, King attempted to enter his vehicle and was stopped, but continued to ignore verbal commands to place his hands behind his back. King was taken to the ground and secured after he attempted to reach into his pants. Investigators found him in possession of meth and drug paraphernalia.
King was charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia in addition to his theft warrants. Several stolen items were recovered from his vehicle and more were found at his home.
The sheriff’s office says that King had likely been following delivery vehicles, and when a driver dropped off a package he would pick the package up after the carrier left.
King was previously arrested on January 3rd, 2019 when he was located after stealing several air conditioning units in Elkmont.
