A man whom authorities say was wanted for offenses ranging from probation violations to selling marijuana in several counties was arrested Thursday after officers responded to a large gathering of people at The Cove apartments, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators with the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team were working the area of Lanier Drive when they responded to The Cove Apartments on Chandler Road to assist Statesboro Police Department units with the large gathering, Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Friday.
During the course of this agency assist, CST members began speaking with a man in the area. He gave a false name, but investigators were eventually able to determine that his name was Calvin Brewton, 25, of Chandler Road, Anderson said.
Brewton had active arrest warrants for a series of vehicle break-ins on Savannah Avenue, cases worked by the Statesboro Police Department. Brewton was also wanted by Georgia Southern University Police for obstruction, by the Liberty County and Chatham County sheriff's offices for probation violations, and by the Pembroke Police Department for a bench warrant. Additionally, Brewton was determined to be a previously unidentified seller from whom CST had purchased marijuana in the past several months, Anderson said.
Brewton was transported to the Bulloch County Jail, where he remains with no bond set.
"Brewton's case is a prime example of why CST was formed," Anderson said in the release. "His charges range from thefts to drug activity, and he resided in an area next door to Georgia Southern University. By dedicating investigators to work problem areas, regardless of what form those problems take, law enforcement targets its efforts and hopefully makes these neighborhoods safer. The Bulloch County Sheriff's Office and Statesboro Police Department are committed to lowering crime rates and keeping students safe while they attend GSU."
Brewton's final list of charges is as follows: three counts of entering auto, two counts of giving false information to law enforcement, and one count each of sale of marijuana and obstruction, with holds placed on him for Liberty County, Chatham County and Pembroke.
