Man Arrested in Gas Station Shooting

On December 18, 2019, members of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Texaco located at 2195 Fairburn Road in reference to an individual discharging a firearm. While at the scene a male arrived at Douglas Wellstar Hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The investigation concluded that three individuals drove to the Texaco to purchase marijuana from Christopher Menjivar. During the transaction, Menjivar fired a weapon at their vehicle striking one of the passengers. Menjivar fled the scene, but was located by investigators the following day in Cobb County. Menjivar was arrested and charged with three counts of Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon.

Little Lending Library Comes to DCSO

Sheriff Tim Pounds and staff would like to thank the students at Brighten Academy for the gift of a little lending library. This library was built by the students as a way to give back to their community.

We appreciate the time and thoughtfulness the students put into this project. We would also like to recognize Capt.

Kids’ Christmas Shopping 2019

Sheriff Tim Pounds and staff at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office were happy to participate in this year’s Christmas shopping event hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Douglas County. There were 120 students from area schools that participated and escorted through the Walmart Douglasville store in search of presents for themselves as well as family. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, Douglasville Police Department, Douglas County District Attorney’s Office, Douglas County Fire/EMS Department, and other city and county employees also participated. We look forward to participating again next year!

Mason Creek Elementary DARE Graduation

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office brought back the DARE program starting this year, and it is Deputy Hutcheson’s first year teaching DARE classes. The ten-week DARE curriculum is aimed at teaching 5th Graders the dangers of drugs, as well as how to cope with negative outside influences such as bullies and stress. At the end of the semester, each student is asked to write an essay about what they learned from the DARE program. One student from each homeroom is chosen as a class winner based on their essay. Out of those students, a single overall school winner is chosen. That student will then participate in a “DARE Day” during the summer break of 2020. Previous outings have been to places such as Six Flags and other metro-Atlanta amusement-type parks. They then end the day with a pizza party at Chuck E. Cheese. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, and in particular Deputy “Hutch,” are very proud of these students for making it so hard to pick the winning essays.

Congratulations, Alisha!

Alisha Whiteley is another DCSO long-timer who recently decided to retire after 20 years of service. While she was with the sheriff’s office, Alisha worked closely with jail personnel and courthouse staff to process sentence orders and other inmate-related information. Twenty years has certainly gone by way too quickly, and we will certainly miss having her around the office!

Congratulations, Capt. Sword

Our Maintenance Division Captain, Lamar Newborn, recently retired with over 40 years of service, and Lt. Tim Sword was promoted to take his place. Capt. Sword has been a fixture around the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office for close to 30 years, and this promotion is well-deserved!

Man Arrested in Pete’s Chevron Armed Robbery

On November 12th, 2019 shortly after 11:00 AM, Carl Rupnow was shot to death during the commission of an armed robbery while running his Community Coffee route at Pete’s Store located at 1870 Lee Road in Lithia Springs, GA 30122.  The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office/Douglasville Police Department Major Case Unit did an exemplary job on rapidly identifying Freddy Pouerie of Lithia Springs as the suspect.  The expeditious manner in which this case was investigated allowed for investigators to identify the suspect’s place of employment where he was apprehended about 23:00 hours last night.  Members of the community that came forward were crucial in assisting investigators in the quick apprehension of Pouerie and thus making the community that much safer.  We would like to thank the community for their continued support in our efforts to make Douglas County a safe place to live.
