Kidnapping Fugitive Apprehended

On 06/03/2021 at approximately 4:25 PM Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Warrant/Fugitive deputies met with members of the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Team. Clayton County contacted us in reference to a recent kidnapping that had occurred in Jonesboro. The victim had managed to get away, but they were still looking for the perpetrator. Clayton County deputies had very limited information, but they believed the suspect to be in Douglas County and they had a description of the vehicle he was supposed to be driving. About an hour later an investigator with the Douglas County Fugitive Unit located the suspect’s vehicle at a residence in the Fairways subdivision off Rose Ave. The suspect was standing in driveway and was taken into custody by Douglas and Clayton County deputies without further incident. A special thanks to the Douglas County K-9 Unit and SCORPION Unit who assisted the Warrant/Fugitive units in the apprehension.
