The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is looking for two unknown males in connection with multiple pharmacy burglaries. On 04/18/15 at 3:25am, two unknown suspects broke into the Village Pharmacy on Hwy 5. One was seen on security footage wearing a red hoodie and light-colored pants. The second was a black hoodie and dark pants. Both are believed to be black males. Investigators believe these men may have also committed similar crimes in Dunwoody, Austell, and Powder Springs. They are believed to target small, independently-owned pharmacies. They move quickly, spending no more than 3 minutes at a location, and seem to be only interested in prescription narcotics. The suspects are believed to drive a white or light silver 2006-2011 4-door Chevrolet Impala with a sunroof. If you have any information about these two suspects, please contact Investigator Dale Kelley at 770-920-4903 or dkelley@sheriff.douglas.ga.us.

Douglas County first responders (Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Douglasville Police Department, and Douglas County Fire/EMS) were presented with stuffed animals donated by the Knights of Columbus Sweetwater Council. These toys were donated to first responders as a means to comfort children who may be victims of a crime or accident. This is the fourth year the Knights of Columbus has donated stuffed animals to first responders. These toys are certainly appreciated by the children, and are sometimes kept for years after they've received them. Special thanks also goes to Douglas County District 3 Commissioner Mike Mulcare.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office has received multiple calls from county employees, former employees and citizens of our community who have received Green Dot cards, Visa credit cards, had Fraudulent tax returns filed, and/or received other forms of fraudulent credit cards. These cards were received unsolicited and at this time we believe that it may be part of the personal information breach involving insurance companies operating in Georgia. DO NOT ACTIVATE THESE CARDS OR DESTROY THEM.

If you have received one of these cards since January 1, 2015 or you suspect that your personal information has been compromised as part of these crimes, please call the Criminal Investigations Division of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. A hot line has been set up at 678-486-1290 in response to these issues. When calling, please have your contact information available for investigators. We currently have a team of investigators that are diligently looking into the matter.

Thank you,
Lieutenant Jon Mauney

On March 26, 2015, the Georgia State House of Representatives passed House Resolution 568. This Resolution honored radio and traffic reporter legend Captain Herb Emory by naming a bridge in his honor. The location will be the newly redesigned intersection of Lee Rd and I-20 in Douglas County. Members of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office as well as family, friends, and former coworkers were in attendance during the presentation of the Resolution. We would like to thank State Representatives Micah Gravely, Dustin Hightower, Michael Bruce, Kimberly Alexander, and LaDawn Jones for their work in putting together the Resolution. We were also joined by the Emma, Joseph, and Allisha Burnsworth of Winston, who happened to be visiting the State Capitol while we were there, as well as Paulding County Sheriff Gary Gulledge. Details on the date for the on-site bridge dedication and official name will be forthcoming.
