Suspect: You got me

THOMASVILLE — A police officer saw a burglary suspect when he arrived at a recent burglary scene, but the suspect chose not to stick around.

The officer was dispatched to the 400 block of East Jefferson Street and spoke with the victim homeowner, who pointed out the man.

“The suspect saw the officer and started to walk away from the area,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

The officer pursued the suspect on foot through parking lots of businesses on East Jackson Street. A citizen told the officer the suspect was behind a Seward Street residence.

The officer looked behind the house and saw the suspect, who said, “You got me.”

The suspect, Kelvin Randall, 50, 115 Cherry St., is charged with burglary and being held at the Thomas County Jail on a $3,600 bond.

“The capture of this suspect was due to the assistance of the victim, citizens and good police work by the officer. We don’t know who the citizen was, but we are grateful for his help in this case,” Hampton said.
