Two men busted for crime spree

POSTED: August 9, 2017 5:00 a.m.

The Hinesville Police Department arrested Kenya Scott and Daniel Turner for their alleged roles in a series of business burglaries between July 23 and 25.
Both men face a slew of burglary charges. Turner also faces two drug charges and one charge of theft by receiving.
The pair kept HPD busy. The first call came in at 6:49 a.m. July 24. An anonymous tip led officers to the stores at 318 Welborn St. HPD officers found the front doors of three businesses, Premiere Counseling, Aqua Brill Pet Shop and Beauty Spot Hair Salon, smashed open.
According to the incident reports, cinder blocks were used to smash the store fronts.
Another call came in at 8:20 a.m. HPD responded to 509 N. Main Street, where Sew Express and K-Tech Computer Services LLC reported busted rear windows and missing cash from their businesses.
Later that evening HPD responded to an alarm at USA Real Estate Professionals, 201 E. Gen. Stewart Way. 


Police found a garage door at the rear of the building half open. According to the incident report, there was a stack of bricks by a back window and someone had used one to smash a rear window.
At 1:25 a.m. July 25, HPD Officer Scott Hensler stopped to speak to someone he saw around the rear of the Pour House. The man reported someone had attempted to break the lock on a storage shed of the business but it appeared nothing was taken.
At 7:59 a.m. HPD was dispatched to Diversity Health Center, where they discovered that someone had thrown a sewer drain cover through the front glass door.
Money was missing from the petty cash draw, according to the report.
HPD responded to the Zen Den, 1 Sherwood Dr., at 10 a.m. It appeared someone kicked in the back door, ransacked the office and made off with a little cash. At 2:33 p.m., HPD was dispatched to Countryside Estates Realty. They found a window shattered and the back door frame damaged as if someone tried to kick the door in. Cash was missing and the office was ransacked.
Both men are currently in Liberty County Jail. Bond was set for Turner at $44,800. Scott is awaiting his first appearance.
