Man arrested after taking property for "debt"

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - APD reports that Ronnie Harris was arrested for robbery by force Tuesday, but Harris says he just got money that Donte Thomas owed him.

The incident happened at June Bug's #1 on South Madison Street Tuesday afternoon about 1:30.

APD found Harris riding a bicycle in the area, and he had Thomas' wallet and his cellphone in his possession. 

When the officer questioned him, the reports says that Harris said he told Thomas' father told him to handle his debt claim himself, so he took the items as payment for the debt.

Harris was taken to the APD Law Enforcement Center for questioning, and was arrested and taken to jail.

The Investigation Division is handling the case.
