Four men were arrested Saturday in connection with the theft of a Putnam County icon.
Shaun Michael Bachan, 19; Adam Bernard Beckstine, 19; Austin Clark Coleman, 19, all of Eatonton; and Caleb Lawrence Reaves, 18, of Social Circle, were arrested and booked in the Putnam County jail. All four were charged with one count each of felony theft by taking in the theft of the Bre’r Rabbit statue that stood outside the Uncle Remus Museum in Eatonton.
During the theft, the statue was damaged. Sills located the Bre’r Rabbit statue and recovered a broken ear and pipe in separate locations last week. The four suspects have all been released from the Putnam County jail after posting bonds.
