Slipper suspect threatens homeowner with antlers

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

A bedroom-slipper-wearing thief threatens a Dougherty County man with a set of stolen deer antlers. 48-year-old Faustino Orozco Castro is charged with theft by taking and entering auto.

 Joe Bateman called Dougherty County Police to his home on Percy Hatcher Road at 6:30 Thursday morning after he heard someone on his back porch talking to himself.

He found Castro inside his truck wearing a pair of bedroom slippers Bateman kept on his porch.

When Bateman told him to leave, Castro threatened to hit him with the antlers, also taken from the porch.

"The offender was still sitting in the vehicle, and of course the officers ordered him out of the vehicle," said Dougherty Co. Police Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick. "And he still had the antlers and he displayed them to the officer also. And when the officer told him to drop the antlers, he did."

 Castro refused to cooperate and had to be identified through his fingerprints. Dougherty County Police are still investigating how he got to the remote home.
