Texas man arrested for Milton home invasion

MILTON, Ga. -- The suspect in a Milton home invasion may also be responsible for similar crimes in four other states.

Octavius Scott, 22, was taken into custody Dec. 11 by U.S. Marshals in his hometown of Houston, Texas.

Scott is the suspect in an Aug. 18 home invasion in Milton. The victim told police a man broke into her house, tied her to a chair and stole electronics, jewelry and money.

Milton Police Capt. Shawn McCarty said Scott is also wanted in connection with home invasions in Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Texas. Investigators believe he is the head of a home invasion ring that targets victims of Asian and Middle Eastern descent.
