McIntosh man arrested for trailer robbery including Hospice of Golden Isles


A McIntosh County man, William Sheffied Jr., was arrested Wednesday in connection with the theft of two trailers in Glynn County, including one from the Hospice of the Golden Isles.

Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a second man accused of taking part in the two trailer thefts. 42-year-old Vance Watson is wanted on a charge of felony theft by taking. Police say Watson took part in the theft overnight on March 8 of a trailer containing hurricane emergency supplies from Hospice on the Glynco Parkway, as well as another trailer from a location in the county earlier this week.

After the second theft, police say authorities tracked Sheffied and the stolen trailer to a residence in McIntosh County. He is charged with two counts of theft by taking. The trailer was returned to its owner. The Hospice trailer also was recovered, along with some of its contents.

Anyone with information about the thefts or Watson’s whereabouts is asked to call police investigator Earl Wilson at 912-554-7847, or Silent Witness hotline at 912-264-1333.
