Law enforcement officers conducting a drug investigation at Blakewoods Apartments Thursday arrested a man wanted by both county and city authorities on outstanding warrants. Members of the Statesboro-Bulloch County Crime Suppression Team were involved in the narcotics investigation at the East Olliff Street apartment complex Thursday when they spotted Johnathan Tabyris Newkirk, 29, Shuman Road, and tried to arrest him on outstanding warrants from the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office and Statesboro Police, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson. Newkirk fled on foot but was subdued by Taser, Anderson said.
