A Statham man was charged with theft by taking after he was unable to satisfactorily explain why he had removed several items from a neighbor’s yard. A 14-year-old juvenile was out walking his dog when he saw Bradley Presnell, 52, of 2234 Wagon Wheel Trail in Statham, taking some chairs and other items from behind a residence.

The juvenile, who had done yard work for the owners of the residence, did not recognize the man and contacted authorities. The juvenile described Presnell to the responding deputy and provided Presnell’s address.

The deputy went to Presnell’s home and asked Presnell why he had taken items from his neighbor’s home. Presnell claimed he took the items so that they would not get wet when it rained. When asked to provide the neighbor’s name or phone number, Presnell was unable to do so. Presnell explained that he intended to return the items once his neighbors returned home.

Presnell admitted taking a glider rocker, a hamper and three plastic chairs. The deputy asked why Presnell would need to protect three plastic chairs from the rain. At that point, Presnell offered to take the items back to his neighbor’s house.

The deputy allowed Presnell to do so and then arrested him for theft by taking.
