A Winfield man faces multiple charges after an early morning incident in Henry County. 19 year old Tyler Wayne Wood is charged with robbery in the 2nd degree, three counts of burglary in the 3rd degree, operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent, operating while intoxicated and two counts of criminal mischief.

The charges stem from an incident yesterday morning, when a semi-truck driver arrived at Golden Furrow Fertilizer in New London and found Wood burglarizing his cab. After a struggle, the defendant was able to escape.

While attempting to flee the scene, Wood was pursued by police and after a struggle with the officer he was taken into custody and transported to the Henry County Jail. The suspect is presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law.
