    A domestic disturbance call led  to a burglary arrest after a Bulloch County Sheriff’s deputy responding to the call noticed suspicious items inside the couple’s home.
    Those items were equipment belonging to a Statesboro Police officer whose home had been burglarized recently, said Bulloch County Sheriff’s Chief Investigator Capt. Todd Hutchens.
    Bulloch County Sheriff’s Deputy Travis Tuenge became suspicious when he noticed the police-issued equipment and contacted Inv. Bill Black, he said. Further investigation revealed several items that had been taken from a number of homes in Greenhaven Mobile Home Park over the past several weeks, he said.
    The investigation, aided by sheriff’s Investigators Jason Long and Jared Akins, who each had part in investigating at least six separate burglaries and theft incidents at the  mobile home park on Old Register Road, led to the arrest of Scott Evan Boyd, 17, Bell Road, Brooklet, he said.
    Boyd was charged with family violence battery  as a result of the domestic disturbance incident, as well as interference with government property (for taking the police-issued equipment), six counts of burglary, and three counts of theft by taking (firearm), Hutchens said.
    Most of the property stolen from the Statesboro Police officer was recovered, and some other items taken from other victims were recovered as well, he said. However, other items reported missing remain unaccounted for, he said.
    Boyd remains in the Bulloch County Jail without bond, he said.
