Bond has been set for the Alabama man who was found to be in possession of a stolen piece of the Georgia Guidestones Monument.
37-Year-Old William Jeremy Ellis of Anniston, Alabama was arrested by deputies with the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office in the early morning hours on Saturday, August 3rd.
According to Investigator Darren Scarborough with the Sheriff’s Office, Ellis admitted to being the one who stole a small piece of the Guidestones back on September 11th, 2009.
He says this is just a very unusual case.
“We don’t know what their intentions were with the piece of granite or why they were back out there late Friday night/early Saturday morning”, said Scarborough. “We have talked to the gentleman, who is in charge of the guidestones, and we have the piece of granite back, but we are not sure what will be done with it.”
Ellis faces charges of Felony Theft by Taking, Interference with Government Property, and 2nd Degree Criminal Damage to Property.
Bond has been set at five thousand dollars, but has not yet been posted.
Ellis remains in custody at the Elbert County Detention Center.
