Brandon Scott Buzzard

SYLVESTER — A Sylvester man was charged after officers say he failed to comply to their commands and resisted arrest.

Brandon Scott Buzzard, 38, was charged with daytime burglary, trespassing, resisting arrest and obstructing an officer after an incident on Nov. 5.

According to a report prepared by Sylvester Police Chief BK Pauley, he was assisted by Whitesville Police Chief Andrew White when he was on patrol and noticed a light coming from an abandoned residence at 102 Jenkins Drive.

The report states that upon investigation, he noticed a male exiting a detached garage with a light in his hand. There was a white four-door sedan in the driveway.

The report states that the man had his other hand concealed in his pocket and would not remove it after receiving verbal commands to do so and place his hands on top of his head.

When an attempt was made to detain the man, the report states, he attempted to pull away in a “manner as to flee” the scene.

The man refused EMS on the scene and denied injury. After talking with the property owners, Centura Energy, the officer determined that the man did not have permission to be on the property. The report states that there were signs of forced entry in the home and the garage.

At CVN print deadline, Buzzard was held at Southwestern Regional Jail on four separate cases without bail.
