Teen burglary suspect was wearing monitor

A 16-year-old was in a leg monitor when he broke into a Richmond County sheriff's deputy's home and took his county-issued gun, according to Sgt. Bill Leisey.

The juvenile was arrested in Richmond County in early March in connection with 23 burglaries. However, he was soon released by the Department of Juvenile Justice with a leg monitor, Leisey said.

He has now been rearrested in connection with the burglary of the deputy's Augusta home and two other locations.

The gun was not recovered.
