Valdosta Police

VALDOSTA — Saturday night, Valdosta Police officers were dispatched to a house in the 2500 block of Seymour Street to respond to a reported burglary. Thanks to team work by officers working the case, a suspect was arrested.

Upon arrival, a female resident told police an unknown person broke in and stole items from her living room. Officers found damage to the back door.

Officers then checked the area for suspects. Witness reported seeing a white male walking down the street carrying a television set around the time the burglary would have taken place. Witnesses said the suspect walked down University Drive and crossed over Seymour Street.

Interviews with other people in the area resulted in learning the suspect possibly lived on Knox Drive. Officers then interviewed residents of 2435 Knox Drive. From that information, officers gained consent to search the residence and located a television matching the description of the one that had been stolen. The TV was positively identified by the owner.

Maxwell Aho, 33, was arrested. The other two occupants of the residence on Knox Drive were not arrested. Aho was taken to the Lowndes County Jail and an arrest warrant was requested for Burglary – Forced Entry to a Residence and Criminal Trespass Private Property Vandalism.

The Valdosta Police stated they appreciate the citizens who came forward with the information they had concerning the incident as this information was very instrumental in helping officers solve this burglary.

    Fodder ‘fer da-Head…..I wonder how helpful the witness’s would have been without seeing a “white male” carrying a tv. Being a white male, i now have empathy for the ” black male suspect.” Damn, ain’t no fun when the rabbit has the gun.. I better get use to it as the party in power makes the rules……..guess some of us will be sayin, “i remember when” sooner than expected……Looking forward to Dementia 🙂
