Bibb County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a residential burglar alarm call on Monday afternoon just before 1:30PM at a residence in the 4200 block of Fairfax Drive. When deputies arrived at the residence they found evidence that the home had been burglarized. When responding to the residence Deputy R. Giltz saw a person exiting a wooded area from behind a church that is located about two blocks from the home. Deputy Giltz went back to that location he first saw the unknown individual and made contact with him in the area.


While talking with the male subject, who was identified as 34 year old Travis Grier, it was discovered that he had an outstanding warrant for violation of probation. Grier was taken into custody and transported back to the residence as deputies continued investigating the burglary. Through video surveillance at an adjacent business, Grier could be seen walking up Fairfax Drive. Deputies also noticed that Grier was wearing a pair of shoes that had the same tread pattern as shoe prints found in the backyard and outside the entry point of the home. A television belonging to the victim was also recovered in the woods across from the home that was burglarized.


After further investigation Grier was charged with 1st degree burglary and a violation of probation, both of which are felonies. He was transported to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Complex. No bond has been set for Grier.
