WARRANTS: Statesboro Man Arrested for Theft from Vaden Nissan in Statesboro

Editor’s Note: The parties named in the 38-page document linked in this article have settled their portion of the bankruptcy matter. The document is linked to demonstrate Baird’s ongoing legal issues, not as a measure of any wrongdoing of any other named parties. 

A Statesboro man already embattled in a host of legal problems is now facing charges in the City of Statesboro.

Carroll Belton “Tray” Baird was booked into the Bulloch County Jail on January 30, according to Bulloch County Jail records. 

According to a preliminary police report from the Statesboro Police Department, officers were called to Vaden Nissan in Statesboro on January 23, 2024 in response to a theft incident. The officer arrived to meet with the complainant, Timothy Wayne Cannady, who stated that an employee had stolen a felony amount of money from the business. The report lists two different incidents – one in the amount of $15,000 and one in the amount of $10,000. The case was subsequently  turned over to the investigations division. 

According to the warrants filed in Bulloch County Superior Court on January 31, the incidents actually occurred on January 2 and on January 11, 2024. Both warrants state that the amounts of cash allegedly taken were given to Baird by customers for the purchase of vehicles at Vaden Nissan.

Theft by Deception is a Felony in Georgia. Each count carries a sentence of one to ten years in prison, if convicted. 

Baird remains in the Bulloch County Jail, pending further court action. In Bulloch County, individuals facing felony charges must appear before a Superior Court Judge in order to be considered for bond.
