Arrest made at Legacy apartments

At least nine law enforcement vehicles drove into the Legacy apartments around 10:15 a.m. and proceeded to surround apartment 1011.

Officers were armed in bulletproof vests with “U.S. Marshal” on the back and shields generally used for crowd control. A Bulloch County Sheriff vehicle was present, but most vehicles were unmarked trucks.

After about 10 minutes of the police knocking on the apartment door and calling out to whomever was inside, a male was escorted out in handcuffs. Police left shortly after that.

It is currently unclear what he was arrested for or who he is.

Stewart Cottingham with the U.S. Marshal’s office in Savannah has not returned a phone call at press time.

Chief Deputy Jared Akins of Bulloch County Sheriff’s office said that the department usually assists U.S. Marshals when they are looking for someone that has a warrant out for them, but he could not confirm that that is the case in this situation.

Officer Justin Samples with the Statesboro Police Department said that he is unaware if the department was involved in the arrest at this time.

Tim Huang, general manager of Legacy apartments, said, “We are still receiving all the information ourselves, but at this time we have no further comment.”
