Sleepy Trespasser on Stolen Motorcycle Woken, Arrested at Hammondville Flea Market

May 8, 2020

HAMMONDVILLE, Ala. — On Monday (May 4th, 2020), the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the I-59 Flea Market on Highway 117 in Hammondville after a caller reported a suspicious motorcycle parked at the business.


When a deputy arrived, the front door was found to be slightly open. The deputy called for backup to check the building and investigated the motorcycle. The motorcycle was found to be reported stolen out of Rome, Georgia.


When additional units arrived, the suspect was found to be sleeping inside the market.


Timothy James Clark, 30, of Silver Creek, Ga., was arrested on a charge of Receiving Stolen Property 1st Degree and remains in the DeKalb County Detention Center.


DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said: “This is another example of why businesses and residents near our interstates and highways must be vigilant. Our roadways make us easily accessible to not only travelers, but also those with bad intentions.”


“At least in this case we were able to recover stolen property and no property was stolen from a local business,” he said.
