Suspect Climbs Into Animal Keeper Enclosure, Faces Charge

Posted: Updated:

A Savannah man has been charged with trespassing after climbing into a cage at a wildlife center and then leading police on a foot chase through the woods.

John Floyd, 26, of an East Park Avenue address was arrested by Islands Precinct patrol officers who chased him down in a utility vehicle borrowed from Oatland Island Wildlife Center on Sandtown Road after finding him in the enclosure reserved for animal keepers near a wolf enclosure.

Police were called to the center before noon when witnesses saw him in the pen. Once police arrived, he climbed the fence then ran down a trail.

In his backpack, police found a container of sugar cubes, unidentified brown crystallized powder, unidentified liquid, an almost empty fifth of Kahlua, and a almost empty half gallon of soy milk.

The investigation continues.
