Burglary suspect flees, but found at home

A deputy arrested Terrance Watton around 11 p.m. after she said his shoe prints matched those found at a burglarized home in Hephzibah.

The deputy left Watton in the car while she walked through the home with the victim and returned to her car to find that Watton had opened his door and fled, a report states.

Several deputies searched the area for the suspect, but it was the arresting deputy who was waiting for Watton when he returned to his home on the 4400 block of Deans Bridge Road.

Watton was charged with burglary and escape.
