An Elbert County man remains behind bars after being arrested twice within twenty-four hours over the weekend.

29-year-old Ontario Lee Perrin of an East Tate Street address was initially arrested Friday evening on Obstruction and Disorderly Conduct charges.

After being released, Perrin was told to not return to the address, but according to Elbert County Sheriff’s Deputy Wesley McConnell, Perrin ignored those instructions and returned back to the victim’s residence.

“She was asleep in bed, along with her child, and our subject used a key to gain entry into the residence and went back to the bedroom and started screaming at her and stole her cell phone and another key to the residence”, said McConnell. “He also told a neighbor to start removing property from the residence, which was not his.”

According to the report, the victim found an Elberton Police officer after the incident and reported that Perrin was threatening her life over the phone.

McConnell says that they caught up with Perrin a short time afterwards back at the victim’s residence.

Perrin currently faces charges of Burglary, Obstruction of Law Enforcement Officers, Terroristic Threats and Acts, and Criminal Trespass.

Perrin remains in custody at the Elbert County Detention Center, where a hold is currently in place by the probation office.
