On 01-08-2022 at approximately 01:19 hours, I was patrolling the area of Maple Street at Bowen Street. While in the area, I witnessed a white male walking on the side of Maple Street towards Bowen Street. As I passed the male, I identified him as William Allen. I witnessed William divert off of the side of the road into the parking lot of Accurate Auto Service and proceed to look into windows of vehicles.
While trying to conduct an investigation William Allen did not follow commands. William was later taken to the ground and had to be forced into handcuffs by officers on the scene.
William was then placed under arrest and charged with:
OCGA (16-11-36) – Loitering and Prowling: For William diverting off of his path of travel on Maple Street and entering the private parking lot of (Accurate Auto). While William was in the parking lot, I witnessed him look into and under vehicles. Due to this, he was unable to dispel my alarm.
OCGA ( 16-10-24) – Obstruction: For William failing to obey lawful commands to stop walking away from officers attempting to conduct a lawful investigation.
