Sheriff Brad White has confirmed that a Monroe County man with a ‘news’ page on Facebook is a suspect in the theft last year of the Trojan Grill from the local football field and multiple other trailer, equipment and grill thefts in the area This story was wirtten by Will Davis, publisher of the Monroe County Reporter: Local Facebook gadfly Scott Bogulski was back in jail on Monday, this time charged with stealing the $7,000 trailer seized from his home on Feb. 19. And Lamar County authorities want to talk to Bogulski as well after saying he is a suspect in the case of two trailers stolen there. Bogulski, 40, of 390 Sunset Terrace, Forsyth, had already been arrested on Feb. 19 and charged by Monroe County authorities with receiving an enclosed trailer stolen from the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association office off I-475 in Macon. The trailer was seized at Bogulski’s home after it was located thanks to a GPS device on the trailer, according to Monroe County authorities. But on Monday, it was Bibb County sheriff’s Inv. Neal Moore who took out a felony theft by taking warrant against Bogulski. He was being held at the Monroe County Jail at presstime. Moore said that a security video from the Cattlemen Association’s office shows Bogulski backing his silver Chevy truck to the trailer and pulling it away around 9:43 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 15. The video shows the suspect trying to cover his face with a hood on his jacket and with something covering his license plate. Meanwhile, Lamar County authorities have reportedly identified Bogulski as a suspect in the thefts of two trailers there, including a high school booster club grill stolen the night of the Mary Persons football game last fall, according to Moore. Moore said Lamar authorities planned to interrogate Bogulski and execute a search warrant on his truck on Tuesday morning. Investigators say that Bogulski has so far refused to talk to them, asking for an attorney instead. Moore said Bibb authorities will soon be bringing back to Macon another suspect, Timothy Lee Rogers Sr. of Macon. He is charged with stealing a truck from the Bibb County Board of Education around the same time, and was thought to have had a role in the theft of the cattlemen’s trailer. He fled and faces multiple charges after being caught near Statesboro. Moore said they want to find out what relationship Moore and Bogulski had. With a 2004 conviction for burglary, Bogulski could face prison time if convicted again. Bogulski told the Reporter last Monday that he had a receipt showing he bought the trailer for $2,200. He said that was cash and trade, mostly cash. Moore said the trailer retailed for $4,000 and that a cattlemen’s wrap which had been removed and the GPS unit made it worth about $7,000. Moore said he thinks Bogulski planned to use the trailer for his crime scene business. Bogulski has long been associated with the Facebook page Forsyth/Monroe County Nuze.
