According to a press release from Sheriff Norman Chaffins, on Sunday, February 25 at approximately 2:30 p.m. Deputies from the Grayson County Sheriff's Ofice (GCSO) responded to a residence on Pence St. in Big Clifty on a report of a Burglary.

He said that when Deputy Mark Newman and Deputy Kelsey Overton arrived, they discovered that the residence had been burglarized.

According to Chaffins, the deputies also received a description of a possible suspect vehicle.

Chaffins said the deputies canvased the neighborhood and approximately two hours later, the deputies received a tip that the suspect vehicle was parked at a business in Big Clifty.

He said that when Newman and Overton made contact with the vehicle they noticed the passenger, 40-year-old Anthony Felty of Big Clifty unresponsive in the passenger seat and during the course of the welfare check on Felty, they noticed several items described as stolen in the Pence St. burglary in plain view inside the suspect vehicle.

Chaffins said a subsequent search of the vehicle revealed two stolen firearms in the trunk of the vehicle as well as several other items stolen from the home.

Deputies arrested Felty and the vehicle’s driver, 36-year-old Falon Meredith, of Big Clifty, and charged them both with Receiving Stolen Property and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, he said.

Additionally, Meredith is facing charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance (Xanax) and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Both suspects were lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center. On Monday, February 26, 2018 GCSO Chief Dpty. Mudd and Deputies Newman and Overton executed a search warrant at Felty’s home in Big Clifty. They recovered numerous other items that had been taken in Sunday’s burglary. Other felony charges are forthcoming. The investigation is ongoing.
