A Montgomery man recently arrested in connection with multiple burglaries in the Hope Hull area has now been charged in connection with a Millbrook burglary, according to Sgt. M.V. Green of the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office. Carlorome Valentino Pine, 26, of Montgomery, who was arrested on Oct. 1 and charged with three counts of burglary third, three counts of theft of property first and one count of possession of burglar tools has since been served warrants and charged for a felon in possession of a firearm, receiving stolen property second degree and possession of a controlled substance. Green said Pine was no longer on state probation, however, as he previously reported. According to Green, a search warrant on a 1999 Ford Expedition driven by Pine the day of his arrest turned up a Springfield Armory .45 caliber firearm, which was recovered along with an extra magazine and several rounds of hollow point ammunition. He said the firearm was “stolen from a burglary from Millbrook which occurred early in September, and Millbrook (Police) has been notified of the recovery of the weapon.” He said the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office executed further warrants on Pine on Tuesday, Oct. 8 for the possession of the firearm, receiving stolen property and the possession of a controlled substance. He said Pine remains in the John Hulett Detention Facility in Hayneville.
