A Colbert man was arrested by the sheriff’s office last week after he allegedly burglarized his estranged wife’s Alberta Drive home.
Willie Richburg Jr., 39, 391 Alberta Drive, was charged with one count each of burglary and aggravated stalking.
According to the incident report, Deputy Jeff Strickland was dispatched to a “burglary in progress” on Alberta Drive around 11:45 p.m. Friday, Nov. 28.
When he arrived, he found Mrs. Richburg across the street from her residence, yelling “he is in the living room.” As Strickland approached the home, Richburg came out through the front door and started walking toward his wife, saying he just wanted to talk to her. After twice refusing to stop when ordered to, Strickland “escorted Richburg to the ground” and handcuffed him before placing him in the back of his patrol car. Mrs. Richburg told Strickland her husband had just been released from Athens-Clarke County Jail, where he had been incarcerated for domestic violence charges against her. She also showed Strickland a bond order stating that her husband was to have “no contact” with her.
Mr. Richburg allegedly brought a tire iron and knife with him to the residence and used the tire iron to break a window in order to get inside the home. He told the deputy that an X-Box 360 lying on the floor was his, and he was “just taking what was his.”
Richburg was transported to the Madison County Jail.
Others arrested by law enforcement officials in the county last week included:
•Wesley David Moore, 19, 2265 Edgar Town Lane, Smyrna, bench warrant, improper/erratic lane change and vehicular homicide (second degree). (This arrest stems from a 2006 Georgia State Patrol case.)
•Anthony Byron Gilliam, 39, 2228 Glendale Drive, Decatur, two counts of probation violation (original charges: forgery and theft by taking).
•Kenya Pamela McCulough, 28, 312 Norwood Circle, Athens, driving while license withdrawn and leaving the scene of an accident.
