The following press release has been issued by Clay County Sheriff's Office. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
A Hayesville man was arrested once again for breaking and entering after stealing a bike. Peter Tiger, 20, broke into an outbuilding on Friday March 24, 2017, and stole a bicycle according to Sheriff Davis. Sheriff Deputies had just had an interaction with Tiger at the Sheriff’s Office and saw him walk up to the office, and he was actually asked to leave after causing a disturbance in the lobby. A short time later, one of the same Deputies witnessed Tiger riding a bicycle on Courthouse Drive right after another deputy witnessed him throw the back down and embankment on Courthouse Drive.
Sheriff Davis said the deputies approached Tiger to see where he acquired the bicycle. He then admitted to the deputies he took it because he was tired of walking. Upon further investigation it was discovered an outbuilding at a residence on Courthouse Drive had been broken into and the bicycle taken from it.
Tiger was arrested for breaking into the new Dollar General on Hwy 64 East, and for breaking into a building near the Dollar General in February of this year. Tiger recently received a bond reduction and was able to get out of jail on March 13, 2017.
