An investigation into a reported burglary early Friday morning at a business on U.S. 79 South resulted in the arrest of a man who was identified from video surveillance at the business.

William Windom, 35, who is currently on parole, was the driver of a vehicle that went to the Handy Mart at 6605 U.S. 79 South at 1:30 a.m., sheriff’s department Investigator Mickey Buffkin said in a probable cause affidavit.

Buffkin reported that deputies found the front door of the business broken and numerous cartons of cigarettes missing. When the owner arrived, deputies were told that the cigarettes were the only items that appeared to be missing.

Video surveillance showed that a second person, who is still at large, used a large rock to break the door and that person and Windom went inside the business and took the cigarettes.

Windom was arrested Monday and reportedly admitted his involvement in the burglary, Buffkin said.

Also Monday, Circuit Judge Rob Wyatt Jr. set a $2,500 bond for Windom after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with commercial burglary.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth continued that bond when Windom appeared before her Tuesday and also appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent Window.

Records at the prosecutor’s office showed that Windom had a number of prior convictions, including several for commercial burglary and theft of property.

Windom was told to come back to court Aug. 14.
