Warrant was issued earlier Tuesday for Nathan Saulsberry on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
A Milton man sought by police on a warrant issued for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon turned himself in Tuesday night.
According to a news release from the Milton Police Department, Nathan Saulsberry, 25, flagged down an officer before 9 p.m. and surrendered to authorities. He was taken to the Santa Rosa County Jail where he is being held without bond.
Earlier Tuesday, Milton Police Chief Tony Tindell announced a warrant was signed for the arrest of Saulsberry, who goes by the alias “NayNay.” Tindell said Saulsberry is connected to the July 15 vehicle burglaries in the Cedar Ridge subdivision where he confronted a homeowner, pointing a gun at him at close range and threatened his life verbally, commanding the homeowner to back up or “I’ll kill you.”
Previously arrested for the vehicle burglaries was a 16-year-old juvenile charged with carrying a concealed firearm, armed burglary, vehicle theft, possession of stolen property and resisting an officer. He was transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
The initial call in the burglaries was made at 3:45 a.m. July 15. The caller gave a clothing description and when officers arrived, a young black male fitting the description was seen walking away from a vehicle.
The subject was taken into custody. When searched, a loaded handgun was found on his person. Also, within the suspect’s possession was a bottle of prescription medication belonging to one of the burglary victims as well as a large amount of cash. The vehicle the suspect was walking away from was identified as stolen.
During the vehicle search, officers recovered more stolen items and a loaded handgun. A second suspect was involved, later identified as Saulsberry, and was being sought for pointing a handgun at a resident who was checking his vehicle.
With the assistance of the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office K-9, a perimeter was set up, but Saulsberry was not located.
