Bibb County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputies arrested a male suspect during a burglary in progress call, early Wednesday morning. The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a commercial burglar alarm at a local law office, located at 1922 Forsyth Street at around 2:22 a.m.
When Deputy Jeremy Holmes arrived at the law office, he noticed that someone had damaged the window in the door frame, at the front of the business. Holmes shined his flashlight into the business and noticed a shirtless male sitting behind the desk. The male stood up, walked around the desk, and headed towards the front door. The male was wearing nothing but a pair of underwear. The male quickly grabbed a fan from behind the desk and stated that the building had a gas leak.
Deputy Holmes instructed the male to put the fan down and attempted to detain him. The male began to fight with Deputy Holmes. During the struggle, Deputy Holmes deployed his Taser, but it did not seem to have any effect on the suspect.
Additional deputies arrived on the scene and the suspect was taken into custody. The male suspect was later identified as David Bryant Walker, 31- years-old, from Covington, Georgia.
During the investigation into this incident, deputies discovered that Walker stole vehicle from Covington and left it on the off ramp from Interstate 75, at its intersection with Forsyth Street.
Walker was transported to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center. He is currently being held at the Bibb Co. L.E.C., with a $16,000.00 bond for the charges of Burglary-2nd degree-Felony, Willful Obstruction of Law Enforcement-Felony, and Theft by Taking-Auto-Felony.
