April 2 (UPI) -- Georgia police have arrested a man who they think carried out a series of burglaries in John’s Creek while wearing nothing but a cowboy hat.

Ashdon Gibbs was allegedly caught on surveillance video at the home of John's Creek City Councilwoman Cori Davenport this week. Davenport saw Gibbs when she came downstairs after hearing her teenage daughter scream.

She called 911 and Gibbs took off, but not before he tried to swipe a motorcycle from the driveway.

"They're like, what was he wearing? And I'm like absolutely nothing... a cowboy hat," Davenport told WXIA. "He was running pretty fast... not a lot of clothes on, so nothing to weigh him down.”

After leaving the Davenports' house, the 21-year-old suspect reportedly broke into Bob Johnson's home.

Once inside, Gibbs “listened to some Elvis on a vintage jukebox and watched some TV.”

"He sat in the chair," Johnson told WALB. "He likes the Braves, so he went and had a good time watching the Braves, drinking beer."

When he was arrested, Gibbs was wearing Johnson's clothes and told police he was a U.S. Marshal.
