Man returns from jail to find another man in home

MOULTRIE — A man returned Wednesday to his Burt Horne Road residence after a stint in jail to find that someone had been staying at his house during the month he was away.

Bertran Aguilar, 100 block Burt Horne Road, reported Wednesday that the man, whom he knows, attacked him with a knife shortly after he arrived home.

But additional investigation by the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office turned up no evidence indicating that Aguilar was assaulted.

Aguilar told officers that he had just returned home when the man drove a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder up to his residence at a high rate of speed.

When he asked the man what he was doing there he pulled out a knife and tried to stab him, but Aguilar escaped and ran back inside. The man then drove away, Aguilar reported.

Aguilar had two holes in his shirt, one on the left side and one in the stomach, and scratches in both areas, sheriff’s reports said.

Aguilar told officers that when he got home there was a large amount of beer cans at the residence.

When he asked his stepson about the beer cans, he told him that the man who came to the residence drank them and had been staying there during the time Aguilar was in jail.

Sheriff’s Inv. Chris Robinson said the he spoke with the man identified by Aguilar, who told him that Aguilar had threatened to get him in trouble with the law.

 The man allowed a search of his car, residence and himself and no knife was found.

“We determined there was no physical evidence to determine an incident occurred,” Robinson said.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.
