Burglary suspect nabbed outside of WR Home Depot

Warner Robins police arrested a Macon resident early Sunday morning in connection with a June burglary at Home Depot on Watson Boulevard, according to a Wednesday morning news release.

Robert Parks, 49, was taken into custody at 2:52 a.m. Sunday after police spotted a dark colored SUV that they suspected had been involved with the June Home Depot burglary — in the parking lot of that same Home Depot. According to police, Parks had returned to the scene of his alleged crime.

The SUV had an expired tag; Parks had a suspended driver’s license and no vehicle insurance. When police questioned Parks, they spotted a mask and tools that could be used for a burglary inside the SUV, according to the release.

Further investigation of Parks found that he had also been involved in an August burglary at the nearby Target, according to police. He is also suspected of burglaries in Macon.

Parks was charged earlier this week in connection with both Warner Robins burglaries. He is also charged with prowling or loitering within the city, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, driving with a suspended license, expired tag and no proof of insurance.
