VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A Valdosta man is in custody, charged with the June 5th burglary of a woman's home at the Courtyards on East Park Avenue.
On Thursday, Jacob Henderson, 22, was interviewed, subsequently arrested, and transported to the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office for felony burglary.
Detectives obtained a search warrant for Henderson's apartment and recovered the victim's television.
"This is an excellent job by the Burglary Detectives who took their time and did a thorough job, not only arresting the offender, but also recovering property that was returned to the victim," said VPD Commander Leslie Manahan.
