Four charged with theft from Macon construction site


Bibb Sheriff's deputies arrested 4 people Tuesday in connection with the theft of steel rebar from a Macon construction site.

The Bibb Sheriff's Office says around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, a deputy stopped a pickup truck driving with no lights on, in the 3600 block of Eisenhower Parkway in Macon.

While the deputy was talking with the driver and passengers in the truck, he noticed a large amount of steel rebar in the bed of the truck.

The deputy then detained the four people for questioning at the scene.

An investigation revealed the steel rebar was stolen from a construction site on the campus of Central Georgia Technical College, and the four were then arrested.

They are: 48-year-old Tanya D. Sowash of Macon, 37-year-old Robert Orion Aycock of Macon, 27-year-old William Joshua Thompson of Macon, and 21-year-old Joshua William McGill of Macon.

All four suspects were charged with felony theft by taking, and they were taken to the Bibb County Jail, where each was held on $4,050.00 bond.

Investigators say Thompson is also wanted on charges by the Warner Robins Police Department, and Aycock is wanted on charges by the Crawford County Sheriff's Office.

This theft is still under investigation, and anyone with information about the theft or the suspects is urged to call the Macon Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
