Abram Barnes, the man who was wanted in connection with a July crime spree along North Columbia Street and Garrett Way, was arrested without incident by a fugitive squad late last week in a Macon apartment complex.
Barnes, a convicted felon, was on probation during the reported crime spree, which makes his legal prospects less favorable and promising. In terms of criminal charges, the Milledgeville Police Department and Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office did not hold back. Barnes was charged with eight counts of aggravated assault, two counts of third degree cruelty to children, two counts of probation violation, as well as one count each of criminal damage to property, hit and run, possession of a firearm by convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime (Sheriff’s Office).
The Georgia State Patrol, which investigated the traffic aspect of the crime spree, also could weigh in later with more charges against Barnes.
