COVINGTON — Early Saturday, Covington Police searched Cousins Middle School for more than two hours looking for a burglar who set off the school’s security system. After the search they located Ronald Stephens, 21, of Conyers, naked in the ceiling.
According to a Covington Police Department incident report, officers, the department’s K-9 Unit, deputies from the Newton County Sheriff’s Office and even firefighters with the Covington Fire Department were dispatched to help locate the perpetrator.
According to officials, the reason Stephens was wearing no clothes was because the vent where he entered the building was extremely small.
Stephens was arrested, on the scene, and charged with criminal trespass, burglary and a probation violation warrant out of Rockdale County.
