ATLANTA - A judge denied bond Wednesday for a Decatur man accused of burglarizing several homes while wearing nothing but a cowboy hat.

Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik tracked down people who knew the suspect in Decatur.
Ashdon Gibbs appeared before a Fulton County judge Wednesday to hear the charges he's facing.
The 21-year-old wearing more clothes in court than Johns Creek police say he was Monday when they say he burglarized two homes and streaked into Johns Creek city councilwoman Cori Davenport's house while security cameras captured his every move.
“He was completely naked. He had a cowboy hat on," Davenport said.
Police say Gibbs crime spree started in his own Decatur neighborhood early Tuesday morning when he stole a truck right on his neighbor's driveway.
"I'm like cowboy hat, riding around in my truck, naked? That was amazing when I heard that there," said neighbor Jay Irvin
Irvin says Gibbs took the truck while he left it running in the driveway for his brother.
He told Petchenik he was out gassing up another car when his daughter called.
"(She) said somebody stole the truck.  I thought she was doing an early April Fools," Irvin said.
Petchenik went to the home where Gibbs lives with his grandparents, but nobody answered the door.
Other neighbors told Petchenik they were surprised to hear of the allegations. The same went for Irvin.
“Only time I see him is nighttime.  He always has on black, like a suit, white shirt," Irvin said.
Irvin said Gibbs' family told him he was recently released from the hospital.
"He's kind of off.  He must (not have taken) his medicine," Irvin said.
Gibbs remains in the Fulton County Jail without bond.
