An investigation that started in Oneonta led to the arrest of two men in a case that eventually involved multiple crimes and agencies.
Investigators with the Oneonta Police Department were working a burglary case from June 10 when a vehicle theft occurred in the same area on June 13. Information concerning the stolen vehicle later led to authorities tying the vehicle to an attempted theft in Birmingham, along with car burglaries and theft cases in Blount and Jefferson counties and even a bank robbery in Trussville.
Jonathan Holderfield, 25, of Birmingham, and Joseph Moore, 25, of Remlap, were arrested and charged with theft, first degree theft of property and third degree burglary. Holderfield has been released from the Blount County Correctional Facility on bond while Moore is being held with bond set at $350,000.
Other agencies involved in the investigation include the sheriff’s departments of Blount and Jefferson counties and the Gardendale and Birmingham police departments.
In a separate case, the Oneonta Police Department arrested 33-year-old Christopher Nash Parker, of the Oneonta/Cleveland area, in connection to the burglary of a home on June 13. The homeowners were in the home at the time of the robbery.
Parker was held in the Blount County Correctional Facility but has been released on bond. The investigation is continuing and other arrests could be coming.
