Georgia fugitive arrested

A man wanted for parole violations in Georgia was arrested early Monday morning after being caught possibly attempting to steal from an empty house.

Daniel Dzina, who listed a Kidd School Road residence on the arrest citation, was facing a criminal trespass charge, but now faces extradition to Georgia to face more serious chages.

McCreary County Sheriff’s Deputies Jerry Meadows and Odell Smith responded to a complaint of suspicious activity in an abandoned residence on Hollyhill Road just before midnight Sunday after a caller reported seeing lights inside the home, which had no electricity and had been vacant for a while.

Upon the arrival of the officers, two suspects reportedly attempted to flee, hiding in a neighboring yard, where they were soon apprehended.

Arrested were Dzina, 54, and Charles Pryor, 51, with both men charged with criminal trespassing.

After the duo were lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center, authorities discovered Dzina was wanted out of Adairsville, Georgia on a fugitive warrant for parole violations.

The charges are apparently significant as Georgia officials issued the warrant with orders to extradite from anywhere east of the Mississippi River.

Dzina is being held without bond in the Wayne County Detention Center, waiting for officers from Georgia to pick him up.
