The man who creatively masked his face with a clear plastic bag during a Game Stop burglary has been arrested. We reported earlier that the St Marys Police Department shared a video of a man accused of stealing from Game Stop.
The clear plastic covering of his face did little to disguise him, however, and cops were quickly able to put a name with a face. 22-year old Kerry Hammond Jr. was named in the burglary, and on April 17th, St Marys PD sent out a request for help to locate Hammond. They posted this message on their Facebook page:
“You can help us catch him, once you stop laughing. Please give our detectives a call at our office at 912.729.1442 or the Crime Stopper Tip Line to remain anonymous at 912.576.0565. We’ll’ be sippin’ water while we wait!”
The “crafty” thief was located, arrested and booked on two felony charges by Camden County police on April 19th. According to the booking history, Hammond Jr. has been charged with Criminal Damage to Property and Burglary.
Watch the video of the St Marys PD video that lead to the identification and apprehension of Hammond.
