Park and Zetterower Avenue Suspect Arrested

Written by  Thursday, 20 March 2014 09:34

  The incidents that occurred between August and December of last year were similar in nature and included burglary, armed robbery, sexual assault and peeping tom.  A photograph of a suspect in the peeping tom case was obtained and released to the media last December 24.  In January of this year it was determined that all the cases were linked.

 

  According to a report from the Statesboro Police Department, during the investigation Detective Kevin Weatherly identified the suspect as 20 year old Edwan Raheem Collins.

 

  Wednesday afternoon around 3:30 police located Collins at a residence on West Inman Street and charged him with rape and 3 counts of burglary.  Police also arrested Darius Wigfall, 22, and charged him with harboring a fugitive and obstruction. Additional charges are expected to be filed as the investigation continues.

 

  Statesboro Mayor Jan Moore said “The Statesboro Police Department has done an excellent job over the last several months and this arrest is indicative of their dedication to the safety of our citizens.  It was a remarkable piece of police work”.  She said she was very proud of what was accomplished today.

 

  Director of Public Safety Wendell Turner said the arrests were an example of cooperation with all local law enforcement.  The Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, Georgia Southern University Police Department, Ogeechee Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Marshall’s Fugitive Taskforce all contributed to the to the success of this investigation.
