An Elbert County man was arrested Wednesday afternoon on Burglary charges.
Elbert County Sheriff Barry Haston said that a woman came home and found a man inside her home.
“Deputies responed to a burglary on September 18th on Calhoun Road after a home owner returned home with her infant child and found an individual inside her home placing items in a bag”, said Sheriff Haston. “It was determined the suspect had gained entry through a rear door. The suspect fled into the yard and into a wooded area after being interrupted by the home owner.”
Deputies searched the woods and found several of the items that had been dropped by the suspect.
Investigators were able to identify the individual and obtained burglary warrants on 23 year old Steven Delaney Childs of an Alan Logan Road address.
He is currently being held at the Elbert County Detention Center where a hold has also been placed by the State Parole Board for Parole Violation.
