An Effingham County man was jailed Friday, charged with second-degree home invasion, after he broke into a house to reach his estranged wife and children, who had moved away to avoid him because of domestic violence, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office. Shannon Paul Mincey, 32, of Clyo Kildare Road, with a Newington mailing address, was the first person in Bulloch County to be charged under a new home invasion statute that took effect July 1, Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said. "The statute makes it a felony to enter an occupied dwelling while armed for the purposes of committing a crime," Anderson said.
