Athens man arrested after stolen items found in woods

— An Athens man has been charged with third-degree burglary after stealing an iPad from a home on Caldera Drive in East Limestone and leaving other items in a wooded to area to be retrieved later. 

Yousef M. Abdi, 23, of 26462 U.S. 72 was arrested Thursday after the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at his home and found the stolen iPad, according to Sheriff Mike Blakely.

Other items, including a television, were recovered in a wooded area close to the victim’s residence, the sheriff said. According to Blakely, Abdi didn’t have a vehicle and was unable to physically carry all the stolen goods.

Blakely said the department received the burglary call after the victim noticed the back door of the home was kicked in and several items were missing.

Abdi remained in the Limestone County Jail in lieu of $2,500 bail as of Saturday.
