Son Arrested for Burglarizing Father's Home
An Evans man told authorities that a burglary at his home was likely committed by his son, and deputies later found the man's son with incriminating items, a sheriff's report states.
John Perry, 21, was charged Thursday with one count of felony burglary and committed to the Columbia County Detention Center, where he remains today under a $10,100 bond.
The suspect's father, Dennis Perry, told authorities that a burglar gained entry to his home on Rocky Shoals Circle using his ladder to climb to the second story and pry off the lock to the rear bedroom window. The burglar took items worth $300 (items not described in the report) and left the rest of the home untouched.
A Richmond County sheriff's deputy went to the suspect's home and found him with a basket "which the listed items were in at the time it was taken." The younger Perry was then taken into custody.
