A Jefferson man was arrested recently after he allegedly fled from a Madison County sheriff’s deputy investigating the theft of several four-wheelers, motorcycles and vehicles in the area.
Timothy Cain Anglin, 20, was arrested after a search by tracking dogs and a Georgia State Patrol helicopter on charges of felony theft by receiving stolen property, giving false name, address or birthdate to law enforcement, obstruction and two counts of felony theft by taking.
According to the incident report, officer Steven Kimbel was at the Food Mart on Hwy. 98 near the Jackson County line Friday following up on leads in the thefts when an investigator told him that the suspect (Anglin) might be at a nearby address on Neese-Commerce Road.
Kimbel requested back up before attempting to locate Anglin, as he had been told he would likely flee when approached. While waiting on back up, Kimbel saw a black “crotch rocket” motorcycle pull in to the gas pumps with two white males on board. Due to the recent thefts in the area, Kimbel noted that he decided to approach the occupants to obtain information. The driver went inside while Kimbel spoke to the passenger, who identified himself as “Chase Forrester.” Kimbel noted that he resembled Anglin, but that he had never met the suspect face-to-face. The motorcycle driver’s information turned out to be valid, showing him as owner of the motorcycle. Both men stated that they came from the residence where officers were headed to look for Anglin. While waiting for dispatch to research information on “Forrester,” the subject began to walk away. After being ordered to return, he reportedly took off running behind the store. The driver of the motorcycle said he knew the suspect by the name of “Cain Anglin.”
Kimbel then called for search dogs and the helicopter. Anglin was apprehended the following day (Saturday) at a home on Neese-Commerce Road, according to sheriff Kip Thomas.
