A third person suspected of being involved in burglary of a Glascock County home was arrested Feb. 22 after a background check during a traffic stop revealed burglary and theft warrants for his arrest.
The Glascock County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle on West Main Street in Gibson that was being driven by Brian W. Akins, 53, of Gibson.
According to Glascock County Sheriff Jeremy Kelley, a background check revealed that Akins was wanted for burglary and theft by taking. He said Akins was involved in the theft of a home on Bastonville Road that had been reported to the sheriff’s department on Sept. 16, 2016. The next day a witness reported seeing a man coming from the direction of the Bastonville Road home. The investigation of the theft led to the arrest of Linda Smith Denton, 50, of Gibson and Nikki Lea Denton, 26 of Mitchell.
“Through further investigation of that case, it was determined that Mr. Akins had involvement in the incident as well,” the sheriff said.
During the traffic stop, Kelley and Deputy Charles Cason found a glass pipe used for consuming methamphetamine and a small plastic bag containing marijuana in Akins’ possession.
Akins was transported to the McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center and was charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of theft by taking, marijuana possession and possession of a drug-related object. His bond was set at $35,000 and he is currently incarcerated.
