Multiple Arrests Made After Theft, Drugs

Written by  Friday, 13 June 2014 13:26

According to the press release, on Wednesday, investigators with the Crime Suppression Team and deputies with the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in the 3000 block of SR 119 near Stilson to look into a drug complaint and the possibility that stolen property was located on the premises. The tenant, 27 year old Robert James Kendrick Jr, fled the location in a vehicle. After a short vehicle pursuit, Kendrick abandoned his truck and fled into the woods on foot.  Two passengers in the vehicle with Kendrick, Jeffrey Taylor, 26, and Aubrey Sims, 33, were arrested when marijuana was discovered in the vehicle.

After a search in the woods near Kendrick’s house, they found the 2012 Polaris Ranger stolen in March 2014 from a resident of the Stilson area. The Ranger was recovered for its rightful owner.

Investigators later received information that Kendrick was hiding at a residence on Railroad Bed Connector in the Brooklet area. They located and arrested Kendrick as well as Linda Kendrick, 52, James Robert Kendrick, 33, and Annie Elizabeth Kendrick, 32, for Hindering the Apprehension of a Criminal.

After searching Kendrick’s home, authorities found a quantity of methamphetamine at Robert James Kendrick Jr’s residence.  All parties were transported to the Bulloch County Jail for processing. Charges are as listed below.

1.    Robert James Kendrick Jr:  Fleeing and attempting to elude, Obstruction,  Theft by receiving stolen property (felony), Possession of Methamphetamine
