According to a report from the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Department shortly before 10 p.m. Friday Master Deputy Mark Guarino and Investigator M. Brinson, both assigned the the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team, were working in the area of Lanier Drive when a burglary in progress call at 2 Bird Lane was given. Guarino and Brinson responded to the location and were able to locate the suspect, later identified as Timothy Adams, 29 years old whose address was listed as Bird Lane, Statesboro. The report said Adams was caught leaving the area with a stolen television. After a short foot pursuit, Adams was arrested and transported to the Bulloch County Jail where he remains on a charge of Burglary in the First Degree.
