Naked Man Arrested
Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:
Around 5:45 this morning the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a man prowling around a house and possibly in a garage at a residence on County Road 603 in the Henagar area. At 5:47 the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received another call from a residence on County Road 603 about a man being in a garage. The owner of the residence approached the male subject and began to struggle with him when the male subject grabbed a gun and shot, a woman was grazed by the bullet but is ok. The subject then took off running through the woods where the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies, Ider Police Department, Geraldine Police Department, Henagar Police Department, DeKalb County Drug, Dade County Georgia’s K-9 Tracking dog and DeKalb County Major Crimes Unit and the DeKalb County Special Response Team started a search for the male subject.
At 8:15 am a woman on County Road 603 notified the officers that the subject was in her house. All officers and the DeKalb County Special Response Team surrounded the house and made entry. When they found Mark Shane Tucker, 40 of Flat Rock inside the residence he was in a bedroom naked and laying on the floor. Tucker was then arrested and charged with Burglary 3rd with more charges pending.
Sheriff Harris says “I want to thank all of these agencies for coming together and working with us on cases like these. This shows how working together can make a difference in the safety of DeKalb County.”
