Muddy, Wet Man Caught at Scene of Vandalized Government Property

Drywall had been ripped out and insulation removed from two abandoned GCPS-owned homes in an apparent attempt to gain access to copper wiring.

A Gwinnett County man is facing multiple charges after being caught at the scene of what appeared to be an attempted metal theft on West Rock Quarry Road in Buford.

On the morning of Jan. 17, an officer was dispatched to an abandoned residence in the 2500 block of West Rock Quarry Road in response to a report of a suspicious vehicle. The officer found William Anderson, 42, of Lawrenceville, at the scene next to a Chevrolet Silverado that was stuck in the mud.

When asked what he was doing, Anderson said he and a friend were “out looking for deer.” Anderson had a rifle in his truck, but no ammunition. Also, in plain view in the bed of the truck, Anderson had an open tool box with a pair of bolt cutters. The officer noted there was cut wire that had been used to keep anyone from entering the driveway of the abandoned home.

“William was muddy, and wet and was attempting to wench his truck out of the mud it was stuck in,” the officer wrote in the report.
