Four Montgomery (Ala.) teenagers have been charged with 31 total felonies from eight separate cases spreading from late September to mid-October, Montgomery police said at a joint news conference with the mayor Thursday.
MPD Chief of Operations Scott Tatum said the crime spree began with the theft of a vehicle at the 4500 block of South Court Street on Sept. 27 and “continually got more and more aggressive and more and more violent.”
“It started with the theft of a car and ended with a kidnapping, rape and sodomy charge. … It is our belief that had they not been caught, their violence would have continued to increase,” Tatum said.
LaCorey Fuller, 19, is charged with kidnapping, two counts of robbery, rape, sodomy and two counts of theft of property. Shar’Tavius Walker, 18, is charged with kidnapping and robbery. L’Derrick Purnell, 18, is charged with two counts of kidnapping, rape, five counts of robbery, sodomy and two counts of theft. Jasper Wright, 17, is charged with kidnapping, four counts of robbery, rape, sodomy and four counts of theft.
