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.
Sheriff Davis said Nathan Brice Garrett was arrested last week for multiple break-ins in the Warne community. The charges Garrett is facing are specifically for three residences.
During the execution of a search warrant, Clay County Investigators discovered more than 60 items of stolen property and were able to recover them and return them to their rightful owners.
Sheriff Davis said Garrett has been charged with 10 felonies including Second Degree Burglary, multiple felony counts of Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Burglary Tools, and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. Garrett made bond on the $27,000 bond he had already received. His most recent charges got him a $17,000 unsecure bond.
Sheriff Davis said his office is constantly striving to make headway in break-ins, and is happy to see an arrest was made in these. As always, Sheriff Davis encourages the people of Clay County to report suspicious activity, but to also take precautions themselves to keep from being a victim. This can sometimes be done through simply securing property and looking out for your neighbors. Sheriff Davis said if you see something that does not look quite right to call and have it looked in to.
