On July 17, Clay County Sheriff's Department officers were in the middle of investigating an arson fire at a small wood-frame building behind the house at 508 East South Street, Center Point, when they were notified of a burglary at a nearby residence.

According to officials, several items were reported missing from a garage and found shortly afterwards in a nearby ditch.

Two Center Point residents, Cody A. Eder, 22, and Keanon Dickison, 22, were early suspects in the investigation.

The night of the incident, Dickison and Eder were taken into custody and booked into the Clay County Justice Center on preliminary charges of possession of stolen property. Eder was also charged with theft and probation violation.

Eder was later released from jail, while Dickison remained incarcerated until his formal arraignment in Clay Circuit Court Monday.

Charged with burglary, theft, criminal trespass, possession of paraphernalia and criminal mischief, Dickison pled not guilty and Circuit Court Judge Joseph Trout scheduled a jury trial for Nov. 3. According to jail officials, he remains incarcerated in jail on a $10,000 cash bond.

The burglary investigation and case review by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office led to Clay Superior Court issuing an arrest warrant on July 18 for Eder on charges of burglary, criminal trespass, possession of paraphernalia, theft and receiving stolen property stemming from the incident.

Members of the Brazil City Police Department took Eder into custody at an undisclosed Brazil residence Thursday evening.

Currently in jail on a $25,000 bond with no 10 percent allowed, Eder appeared Friday before Superior Judge Blaine Akers, who entered a not guilty plea on Eder's behalf and scheduled a jury trial for Oct. 20.
