Gammill Run 2018

The 14th annual Blake Gammill run/walk was held at Boundary Waters Park on Saturday, May 19th, 2018. The rains held off on race day and we had almost 200 registered racers participating. There were several others from the community who came out to support the runners. Several members from the various high school ROTC programs, lead by DCSO Deputy Tony Carr, came out and participated in the race as well. We would like to give thanks to all of this year’s sponsors. Special thanks to the Douglas County Parks and recreation department for continued support in allowing the race to be held at Boundary Waters Park. As always our volunteers from the Douglas County Rogue Runners, DCSO CLEA, and Explorers were very much appreciated. Special recognition was given for the Douglasville-Douglas County WSA for having 47 registered racers, the most for a single organization. Blake’s parents, Dale and Stella Gammill were both in attendance and were pleased with the turnout. As always this year’s proceeds will be used to fund training and equipment for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team. Results of the race can be found at http://running.net/content/results.

Thieves Break Into Multiple Vehicles

On May 24, 2018 Sheriffs officials were notified about several entering autos that had occurred in the overnight hours in the Central Church/ Reid Rd area. In one instance, a homeowner interrupted the suspects attempting to steal items from a vehicle. The suspects upon fleeing produced a firearm and fired multiple shots into the ground. No one was injured. Throughout the morning the Sheriff’s office searched the surrounding area in an attempt to locate the individuals responsible. In all, approximately 17 vehicles were entered and a vehicle that was stolen out of Union City Georgia was recovered. Preliminary investigation shows that the individuals responsible for the thefts were not from Douglas County and most likely from South Fulton County.

We would like to remind everyone to lock your vehicles at night and remove all valuables. This includes any firearms you may keep in your vehicle. All of the vehicles entered in these instances were unlocked. This has become a pattern across metro Atlanta with thieves targeting the easiest opportunity.
