Repeat criminal re-arrested

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - A Moultrie man who was just released from prison last month is back in jail.

Colquitt County Sheriff's Investigators say 32 year old Traviskius Pate was arrested Friday afternoon while walking on Sam Harrell Road.

Pate was carrying items taken from a burglary at a home on Doc Darbyshire Road.

Gay Lynn Pettyjohn says Pate pointed a gun at her when she found him hiding in a bedroom closet.

Pettyjohn ran out of the house and called 911.

Pate is being held without bond on burglary and aggravated assault charges.
