Burglary arrest made

Cordele — Crisp County Sheriff’s Office deputies have made an arrest in connection with six residential burglaries that recently occurred in the Lakeshore Way and Lakeshear Court areas of Lake Blackshear.

Col. Billy Hancock identified the suspect as an Americus man, Owen Black, 21, who also has ties to Cordele, as the person charged with break-ins during which television sets, fishing gear and other items were stolen. Black was initially arrested on a DUI charge.

“Throughtout the night and day on Thursday our officers developed leads  that allowed them to secure three burglary warrants against Black,” Hancock said. “We expect more warrants will be issued.

“As the investigation continued on Friday, we were able to recover items  were taken not only in burglaries on our side of the river but also in Sumter County where we’re unsure of the number of burglary cases they have that can be linked to the suspect and possibly others later on.

“We’re still in the process of retrieving other stolen items and would like to remind members of the public that if they’ve bought anything from any individual for a cheap price they need to contact our officers to return the items or provide the location where they can be found.

“Otherwise, they’re definitely going to face a charge of possession of stolen property.”

Hancock also said he wished to “publicly thank those investigating the crimes as they gave up their holidays and family time to continue to work to retrieve the stolen goods and make the arrest.”
