The Long Beach Police Department made three different arrests on separate cases last week, all on counts of burglaries of automobiles. Each suspect stole items from vehicles which was not theirs according to the investigators.
Thursday afternoon, the Long Beach Police arrested Ashtin Nichols on a charge of one count of automobile burglary on Azalea Drive in the city. Nichols was transported to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center and incarcerated on a bond for $50,000 set by Justice Court Judge Diane Ladner.
Subsequently, the Long Beach Police captured two more suspects Friday afternoon, both natives of Long Beach.
The first was Brendon Ainsworth, who was arrested following an investigation where a vehicle on Harris Avenue was broke into, several items were stolen, and the suspect was in possession of a firearm. Due to a previous arrest and conviction of Ainsworth one year ago for burglary, it was illegal to him have possession of a weapon. Therefore, Ainsworth was charged with two counts with a $50,000 bond for each.
After being transported to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center, Ainsworth had a $100,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Melvin Ray pending further legal action.
Finally, the Long Beach Police arrested Fenwick Morgan after results from an investigation led to a charge of automobile burglary. The vehicle that was missing several items was on Leisha Drive in Long Beach.
Morgan was transported to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center and had a $25,000 bond set by Judge Ray. This was Morgan’s fourth arrest on similar charges in the last year.
