Part of Parkview softball equipment recovered

LILBURN - School officials refused Thursday to provide information about a man they said Wednesday was arrested by school police on charge stemming from a burglary at Parkview High School.

Sloan Roach, Gwinnett County Public Schools spokeswoman, said Thursday she had asked the school police to provide information about the identity of the man arrested Wednesday on a theft by receiving charge. No information about the man was provided to the Gwinnett Daily Post by Thursday evening.

Roach said the information would be available when the police finished their final report. Roach gave the Post a copy of the initial police report, written Tuesday by David Seibles.

An arrest warrant, signed Wednesday and obtained by the Post Thursday, shows that Eric Fulcher of Loganville was arrested on a theft by receiving charge. The warrant states that "Officer D. Seibles" said Fulcher committed the offense "on (Sept.) 26th between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ... at Bethesda Park ... & against Parkview High School."

The warrant also alleges Fulcher received property valued at $4,000.

Roach said Wednesday police had recovered $4,000 of the $6,900 in softball equipment stolen between 2 and 4 a.m. Monday from the school's softball concession stand.

The judge who signed the arrest warrant gave Fulcher a $1,000 bond.

The Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department's Web site said Eric Wayne Fulcher, 26, was being held in the detention center Thursday evening. The Web site did not list the charges against Fulcher.

Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Stacey Kelley, when reached Thursday evening on her mobile telephone, said the lack of charges probably meant he was being booked. She said the charges should appear on the Web site as soon as the booking process is finished.
