Suspect Identified in Macci Feed Burglary Case

LIBERTY, July 24, 2015 – Liberty County Sheriff’s Investigators Sgt. Paul Lasco and Sgt. Robert Dunn, during the course of this investigation, received information that a person by the name of Marshall McCreight was thought to be the suspect who had committed the burglary of the Maci Feed Store earlier this week. Acting upon this information both Investigators went to the home of the suspect in the Moss Hill area of Liberty County where they found that Marshall McCreight was not there but did talk to his father. While at that location, the Sergeants observed a vehicle with blood on the outside of the driver’s door as well as a large amount of blood inside the vehicle. A warrant was secured and the vehicle was impounded for DNA comparison of blood samples that were found at the entry point of the burglary of the feed store. At present the blood samples have been submitted and Investigators are awaiting the results.

On Thursday, July 23rd, Sergeants Lasco and Dunn were contacted by an Attorney who stated he would bring Marshall McCreight to the Sheriff’s Office for an interview with Investigators.

During the interview, McCreight admitted that he did, in fact, commit the burglary and the three hand guns that had been stolen during this burglary was recovered by investigators at that time. One of the major questions ask by the news media, many of whom dubbed this suspect as the “Boxer Bandit” due to him only being dressed in his boxer underwear shorts , as well as the public who has been monitoring this case is why was he dressed only in his boxer shorts during this offense.. McCreight gave the explanation that he had been seen earlier in the evening in his clothing and he knew there were people who could identify him by his clothing if he was seen or caught on camera during the burglary so he shed his clothes to avoid identification. Also during this interview with investigators, a very large and deep cut was observed on McCreight’s left leg above the knee as well as scratches on his hands sustained when he broke the window out to gain entry to the business. At the termination of this interview, Marshall McCreight was allowed to leave with his attorney with the assurance from the attorney that McCreight would return the following day after Investigators had completed other aspects of the case and had obtained a warrant of arrest.

On Friday, July 24th. a warrant of arrest for Burglary of a Building was issued out of Justice of the Peace, Judge Stephen Hebert’s court and McCreight’s father brought his son to the Sheriff’s Office and surrendered him into the custody of Sgt. Investigator Robert Dunn at approximately 1:30pm.

Marshall Theodore McCreight, age 18, of the Moss Hill area of Liberty County was placed in the Liberty County jail and will be brought before a Judge in the morning. No bond is set at this time.
