Last week Richmond County authorities arrested Leon Jennings, 34, of the 200 block of Cook Road, following the discovery of 18 stolen computers inside a room at the Budget Inn on Broad Street. The computers are believed to have been taken from a Wal-Mart in Alabama.

Mr. Jennings was arrested at the scene Aug. 21 and charged with theft by receiving stolen property, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s office press release.

Police continue to look for another suspect, Dionne Jason Walker, 34, and believe he might be in South Carolina.

Anyone with information on Mr. Walker is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080.
