Columbus police arrested Issac Kindred, 56, of Danbury Drive on a felony charge of second-degree burglary Friday.
According to a police report and testimony during Saturday’s preliminary hearing in Columbus Recorder’s Court, Officer J.L. Bragg responded at 11:30 a.m. to Pollman Street in reference to a theft. En route, the dispatcher told him a black male wearing a green shirt and khaki pants entered the victim’s backyard and removed a lawn mower from her shed.
Bragg saw the suspect walking north on Sturkie Avenue, about a quarter mile from the victim’s residence. The suspect said an unidentified male on Pollman Street gave him permission to use the lawn mower. As he was pushing the lawn mower away from the property, the female victim, who uses a wheelchair, confronted him.
“He tried to get in the house,” she testified, adding that was the first time she had seen him.
Because of the suspect’s criminal history, Judge Michael Joyner said, Kindred is being held without bond in the Muscogee County Jail.
