David Hooks was a successful businessman who had been burglarized just a day before the police broke down his door and shot him in the middle of the night. The case itself is strange, with the warrant being obtained from one of the people who broke into his home and stole his car. While it is still early in the investigation, it still should have people asking why there was need for a late night raid on a man who owned two businesses.

First, David Hooks was a successful businessman who owned two thriving businesses. His construction company worked on military bases, including Hunter Army Airfield and Fort Stewart. As such, he was vetted and underwent background checks by state and federal authorities including the Department of Homeland Security and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Based on those background checks, he was granted a security clearance which allowed him to work on these military bases. He was not a drug user or distributor.

How was the warrant obtained

Here, also from WMAZ, is how the police obtained the search warrant for the raid.

13WMAZ obtained the search warrant that led to the raid. It says the night before that raid, a man claimed he found 20 grams of suspected methamphetamine inside a pickup at Hooks’ home.

Rodney Garrett reportedly told investigators that he took a plastic bag from the pickup, believing that there was money inside,and a set of digital scales.

Then he stole another vehicle from Hooks’ home, a Lincoln Aviator SUV, the warrant says. After he drove the SUV to Dublin, Garrett said, he realized that the bag contained meth instead of cash.

Garrett told officers that he “became scared for his safety,” and turned himself in to Laurens deputies, the warrant says.

As for Rodney Garrett, he is now charged with burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and other charges, according to the warrant.

What happened

Here, via The Telegraph, is what happened the night Hooks was killed.

According to the family attorney’s account, Hooks was asleep when armed deputies arrived at his house at 1184 Ga. 319 just before 11 p.m. Sept. 24. His wife, Teresa, was upstairs in her craft room when she heard a car drive fast up the driveway, and she looked out the window.

“She saw several men all in black and camo with hoods on,” Shook said. “She ran downstairs, woke David and said, ‘The burglars are back.’ ”

Hooks retrieved a gun and headed out of the bedroom as the officers broke down the back door, Shook said. He said Hooks was not wounded at the door but behind a wall in his house.

“They may have seen him with a weapon, but it appears at that point in time it was chaos,” Shook said. “They were shooting everywhere. There’s a lot more to it than law enforcement has reported.”

He believes deputies fired 16 to 18 shots from multiple guns and assault rifles. Shook also questioned the wisdom of serving the warrant so late at night.

What was found

Here, via the statement on WMAZ, is what was found at the house.

Second after taking over the scene at around 11:55 p.m. on the 24th of September the GBI conducted a thorough search of the property that lasted until approximately 8:00 p.m. Friday, September 26th. That search of some 44 hours conducted by numerous agents with the GBI resulted in not one item of contraband being found! This has been confirmed to the family by the GBI and is evidenced by the return of the original search warrant which was finally filed in court on September 29th and indicates that nothing was seized pursuant to the search warrant.

The police had to answer the question about Meth, there is no doubt of that. Why a raid needed to be conducted the night after a burglary on the Hooks is the major question. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into this and the police are offering no more information. Some of the police involved have been put on administrative leave.
