On 11/7/14 BCSO patrol deputies responded to a residential burglary in the 1800 block of Stucky Rd, Statesboro. The deputies collected evidence and witness statements from the scene for use by Investigators with the Criminal Investigations Division.
A short time later deputies responded to Chance’s MHP on Kyle Sorrell Rd for a disturbance. Deputies contacted the three female victims from the Stucky Rd burglary who indicated that they had driven to Chance’s MHP because they believed that they knew who had broken into their home. When they arrived, they had a confrontation with Willie Rufus Key (62 yoa, Chance’s MHP, Statesboro) who brandished a shotgun at the three females and chased them throughout the mobile home park. Deputies found that Key was also a convicted felon and that the shotgun in question was stolen from a burglary earlier in 2014. Key was arrested and transported to the Bulloch County Jail charged with 3 cts of Aggravated Assault, 1 ct of Theft by Receiving Stolen Property (felony), 1 ct of Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime, and 1 ct of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. Key remains without bond at the Bulloch County Jail.
