Selma detective arrests burglary suspect

A Selma man is in the Dallas County Jail under $25,000 bond as a suspect in a burglary.

Selma police Det. Frederick Walker, acting on a complaint filed April 8, investigated the incident, which led to the arrest of Ricky Fontrell Suttles, 20, on a charge of third-degree burglary.

The complaint was turned in by a 29-year-old man who said he heard a loud noise and when he investigated saw his door had been kicked in,” said Sgt. Doug Stewart, administrative division commander for the Selma Police Department.

The victim noticed a man inside the house. The suspect fled on foot when the victim entered the room, said Stewart.
