MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- The Bibb County Sheriff’s patrol deputies arrested 25-year-old Forestt Paten Mander for several outstanding warrants last Saturday, December 1, 2018. The sheriff’s office has been looking for Mander after he ran from deputies a couple of weeks ago.
Mander is charged with seven counts of Financial Transaction Card Fraud, three counts of Financial Card Theft, Theft by Taking-felony, Entering Auto, Battery Family Violence, and he has a Superior Court- felony- Probation hold.
Around 8:30 Saturday morning, deputies watched Mander traveling through the Ingleside area. Mander attempted to hide his identity by pulling a baseball cap over his face. Police were not fooled and stopped Mander as he pulled into the parking lot of 334 Vista Circle. Mander got out of his vehicle and tried to enter a wooded area, next to the apartments, but police stopped and arrested him.
Investigators are looking through recent cases in the Ingleside neighborhood to see if Mander was involved in any of those incidents.
Mander is currently being held in the Bibb County Law Enforcement Complex, without bond. Before the probation hold, Mander’s bond amount would have been $29,660.
