A Commerce man learned the hard way last week that if you’ve got outstanding warrants, think twice before calling police to report a crime.
That’s what happened to Corey Devonte Johnson, 29, of 411 Heritage Hills Drive, according to the Commerce Police Department.
Johnson returned from vacation to find a back window broken and raised and a back door ajar. Although the residence had clearly been entered, neither he nor his girlfriend could find anything missing from their apartment.
Then the investigating officer ran Johnson’s identification and learned that Johnson had outstanding warrants from both Oconee and Athens-Clarke counties, according to the arrest report.
The officer transported Johnson to the J&J Flea Market, where he turned him over to an Athens-Clarke deputy.
