Fayetteville Police Nab Griffin Man for Burglary

On January 7, 2012 Fayetteville Police arrested Stephen Michael Jones, 21 of Griffin, after receiving a call from an alert citizen about a suspicious person in the Lakeside on Redwine subdivision. Fayetteville patrol officers responded to the area and spotted Jones pushing a bicycle which was later confirmed to have been stolen from a residence in the subdivision. Jones dropped the bicycle and fled on foot but was captured shortly after in a pick up truck he had hidden for his escape. Jones was also found in possession of numerous other items he had taken from the home. Jones is charged with Burglary, Loitering and Prowling, and Obstruction. Fayetteville Police are investigating the possibility that Jones has been involved in other crimes in the area.
