CPD: Theft investigation results in arrest, recovery of property

By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

On Friday, September 2, 2022, the Columbia Police Department executed two search warrants which resulted in the recovery of tens of thousands of dollars in stolen property as well as drug charges.

Officers arrived at a residence on Hutchison Loy Road with Probation and Parole as well as Adair County Sheriff's Deputies, where a male was initially charged with possession of methamphetamine. Search warrants were executed at Hutchison Loy Road as well as at storage units on Gaston Avenue, resulting in property from numerous active theft cases being recovered.

Tyler Grooms, 31, of Columbia, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, as well as receiving stolen property over $10,000. Additionally, Grooms' probation has been revoked.

The investigation is ongoing and is believed to be linked to multiple thefts which have taken place locally. The Columbia Police Department was assisted by Probation and Parole's Adair County Office and the Adair County Sheriff's Office.
