Waynesboro man charged in April home invasion
Suspect was already detained in Burke County
Anterrius Kajuan Mims

Statesboro police arrested a Waynesboro man Thursday in connection to a home invasion that took place in April.

Anterrius Kajuan Mims, 21, would have been taken into custody sooner, except for the fact that he has been incarcerated in Burke County on other felony charges, said Madison Warren, Statesboro police community information specialist.

Records from the Burke County Detention Center show Mims was held on charges of possession of tools for the commission of a crime, illegal possession of hydrocodone and oxycodone, parole violation and running a red light.

On April 20, Mims, of Reagan Drive in Waynesboro, reportedly forced his way into a 111 South Apartment on Rucker Lane, Warren said.

He had a gun and “engaged in gunfire” with several people in the apartment, suffering a gunshot wound to the shoulder, she said.

No other injuries were reported.

After being shot, Mims reportedly climbed out of a window onto a fourth-floor balcony and climbed down before fleeing.

Someone took him by private vehicle to a Savannah hospital, where authorities reported the gunshot wound, she said.

Savannah police contacted Statesboro police detectives, who identified the gunshot victim as Mims, suspected in the home invasion.

Following his dealings with Burke County, Mims was extradited to the Bulloch County Jail, where he remains without bond as he awaits further court action, according to jail records.

He is charged with first-degree home invasion, aggravated assault, second-degree criminal damage to property, possession of a firearm or knife during commission of felonies and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
