Auburn, Ala.- On Sept. 21, 2023, Auburn Police arrested David Isaiah Stinson, age 22, from Columbus, GA, on warrants charging him with possession of burglary tools, attempting to elude and obstructing government operations.
The arrest stems from Auburn Police conducting patrol during the early morning hours on Sept. 21. Officers observed a masked male on foot, accompanied by another subject. The masked male was in possession of a long object, later identified as a crowbar. An officer maneuvered to attempt to contact the subjects, and both fled on foot.
