Georgia Deputies Make a Stinky Arrest: Suspects Found Hiding in Sewer After Warehouse Break-In
In a bizarre turn of events, authorities in Bibb County, Georgia, apprehended two alleged burglars who had sought refuge in a sewer system. The incident occurred on Tuesday morning when the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a break-in at California Cereal Products on Mead Road.
Upon arrival at the scene, deputies discovered that the two suspects had fled into a nearby wooded area. Undeterred, a patrol sergeant bravely pursued the individuals and successfully tracked down one of them. The suspect was apprehended without incident, but the whereabouts of the second suspect remained unknown.
The situation took an unexpected twist when officials uncovered the hiding place of the elusive second suspect – inside a sewer. Dramatic photos released by the sheriff’s office on Facebook capture the moment when deputies pulled the suspect out of the sewer through a manhole.
The two individuals responsible for the break-in were later identified as 37-year-old Joseph Seth Sheriff and 56-year-old Johnny Frank Larson. While Sheriff was taken to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters for further investigation, Larson required medical attention and was transported to a nearby hospital.
Authorities wasted no time in levying charges against the suspects. Sheriff faces multiple charges, including burglary, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and probation violation. Larson, on the other hand, has been charged with second-degree burglary and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
Both individuals have been denied bond as the investigation continues. The incident has left the community shocked and concerned about the audacity of the suspects and the lengths they went to avoid capture.
Located in Bibb County, Georgia, the California Cereal Products warehouse is an essential part of the local economy. The break-in has raised concerns about the security measures in place and has prompted discussions about increasing vigilance in the area.
As the investigation unfolds, authorities hope to shed light on any potential accomplices or motives behind the brazen burglary attempt. The incident serves as a reminder of the dedication and resourcefulness of law enforcement officers in their pursuit of justice, even in the most unexpected circumstances.
