Archer man arrested after allegedly following woman home and entering her house

Staff report

ARCHER, Fla. – David Harris Warner, III, 29, was arrested early yesterday morning and charged with prowling and burglary of an occupied residence after allegedly following a woman home and then entering her home.

The victim told an Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy that while she was driving home yesterday morning, she passed Warner standing next to a closed city park near her home. She parked her car in her driveway and walked into her home; Warner allegedly followed her on foot to her front door. The deputy reported that Warner can be seen on the victim’s Ring doorbell wearing a hoodie and a mask covering his face. At about 5:22 a.m., Warner allegedly opened her door and walked into her house.

The woman’s dog barked, and her husband confronted Warner, who reportedly turned around and left. The Ring doorbell camera reportedly shows Warner leaving the house about 50 seconds after he entered, then walking down the driveway.

The victim’s husband reportedly followed Warner to ask him why he had entered the house and told the deputy that Warner had removed his shirt and that he threw his cell phone and wallet on the ground. The victim’s husband said Warner moved toward him in an aggressive manner, so he punched him in the face. He said Warner told him he “needed to look him up” and then ran away.

The responding deputy used the ID card in the wallet to identify Warner and made contact with him at his mother’s home, which is a few blocks from the victim’s home. The deputy reported that Warner was unable to dispel his concerns about why he was loitering in the area with his head and face covered.

Warner has one felony and one misdemeanor conviction, both violent. The deputy noted that he had taken a report in February 2023 about an attempted stabbing at the Circle K in Archer and that he had identified Warner as the suspect in that case, but the victim was never identified. No charges were filed in that case.

Bail information is unavailable on weekends.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • Let’s hope the retarded SA will prosecute and out limp wristed judges will send him to prison, if convicted. Note to homeowner, keep your doors locked, especially overnight.

    • The home owner got home seconds before he entered, she couldn’t have had time to prepare for what he was going to do especially if her husband was home just be happy that hes been arrested and hes finally behind bars. He has also been convicted of being a predator to a 14-16 year old child. Yelling “look me up” after being punched is a dick move. He will definitely be punished while behind bars.

  • Obviously a bad seed still at that age. His ma should kick him out, get a gun and build a fence around her home, too.

  • I don’t understand someone walking into a home uninvited and not being shot try that at my house see what happens

  • Still wearing a mask? He follows orders pretty well but unfortunately didn’t get the memo about COVID not being a threat.

    That protect your home and family thing would have come in pretty handy.

  • Wearing a face mask & a hoodie? It should be against the law to commit a crime wearing a face mask. In fact,
    Face masks should be illegal if there’s no mandated pandemic. The whole Covid thing was BS anyway…you don’t destroy our dollar and shut down the economy for something that has a 99.8% survival rate…what does that round up to? 100%…oh!, people are dying!!! You know masks don’t do sh!t…it’s meant to be a psychological thing to scare people away. Say No to Vax passports. Only hypochondriacs, and commies, & social justice types wear them. If you have cancer, than you get a pass. Criminals like wearing face masks & hoodies….masks are creepy and so are the people who wear them.

    • FSS 876.14 covers wearing a mask on privately property to conceal one’s identity when entering a person’s home is a misdemeanor in the state of Florida.
