Deputy arrests fugitive from North Carolina

On 8/13/14 Senior Deputy Doug Harrell was dispatched to Burkhalter MHP on Burkhalter Rd, Statesboro, for a report of suspicious activity in the mobile home park.  Upon arrival, S/D Harrell observed a vehicle which he recognized as being one driven by a fugitive from North Carolina, Dillon Clint Collins.  Collins, wanted for multiple counts of armed robbery, burglary, and theft in Harnett County NC and Benson NC, has been sought by BCSO deputies since North Carolina sent this agency a BOLO for Collins after he fled from their jurisdiction.

Senior Deputy Harrell, Senior Deputy Jeff White, and Sgt Kenny Thompson searched the mobile home where the vehicle was located and arrested Collins, who provided a false name.  After verifying Collins’ identity, he was transported to the Bulloch County Jail to await extradition to North Carolina.
