Felony arrests

Atmore ‘flasher’ charged with failure to register


News Staff Writer

The county jail’s website shows that only two Atmore residents were arrested — both by Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies — on felony charges during the period January 8-12:
*De’Anfernee Tyquan Dailey, 28, was taken into custody January 11 by deputies and is being held for Atmore police on a charge he violated provisions of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
APD Sgt. Darrell McMann said city police were looking for Dailey for his failure to register as a sex offender with city police after he was convicted last year in Atmore Municipal Court of driving up to at least three elderly women and exposing his “private parts” to them.
Failure to register is a Class C felony. Dailey, whose name does not show up on the Alabama Sex Offender Registry, remained in the county jail early Monday, January 15.
*Details are unavailable, but Escambia County Detention Center records show that 41-year-old April Felisha Willis was arrested January 10 for third-degree theft.
According to Alabama Criminal Code, third-degree theft of property occurs when the value of the property stolen exceeds $500 but is less than $1,499, and the property was not taken directly from a person.
Third-degree theft may also be charged if a stolen debit or credit card is used, no matter what the total value is of the property purchased with the purloined plastic.
Willis was released on bond January 11.
