Deputy Slapped 14 year old

Article and video can be found here:


From (pictures on the DCSO page):

During the early morning hours of Friday, March 26th, a male occupying this vehicle entered the BP station at the corner of Fairburn Rd and Lake Monroe. The subject exited his vehicle and cut the surveillance camera wire. The investigation shows that a lock to the in-ground fuel tanks had also been cut. The vehicle appears to be a dark colored, full-size vehicle with no hub caps on the driver’s side. The driver of this vehicle is a white male in his mid to late 20’s, heavy set, wearing a light colored hoodie jacket that has one horizontal stripe across the shoulders and 6 vertical stripes on the back. He is also seen wearing what appears to be leather style gloves.

If you have any information please contact Inv. Dale Kelley at 770-920-4903 and refer to case # 764792-10 or the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office at 770-949-5656.


Cops say man bullied into paying $3,500
by Josh Green

A Douglasville man is behind bars for bullying an elderly man out of thousands of dollars for tree-cutting services he didn’t ask for, police said Tuesday.

Gerald Jerome Davis, 29, led a trio of men who cut trees at the 87-year-old victim’s Lilburn house on March 4 and demanded payment of $3,500, police said.

The men had reportedly knocked on the victim’s door at random to offer work.

“The victim told the (suspects) to stop and that he didn’t want the work done, but they continued,” said Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. David Schiralli.

When finished, the “leader” of the workers demanded payment and the victim, who lives on Geneva Drive, felt threatened and paid the men in full, Schiralli said.

The victim was forced to sign a receipt stating he was satisfied with the service. The receipt lists Davis’ tree service as the business that performed the work, according to a police report.

Gwinnett police robbery investigators received video surveillance of Davis cashing the victim’s check and arrested him after an interview, Schiralli said.

“The victim was able to identify the male in the video as the person he’d given the check to,” he said.

Davis is charged with felony counts of robbery by intimidation and exploitation of a disabled adult. He remains at the Gwinnett County Jail without bond.

Channel 2 Action News has learned thieves stole bags of mail from four apartment complexes.

VIEW:Photos From Scene

Douglasville police said they are concerned personal and private information taken from the mail could be in the hands of criminals. Concerned residents are worried, too.

“You can’t help but worry about that identity theft,” said Khris Parker, a resident at one of the apartment complexes.

The thieves ditched the mail in a dumpster after going through it, police said.

Police kept the mail that appeared to have been tampered with and the unopened mail was returned to the post office.

The apartment complexes involved with this incident were Villas at West Ridge, Stewarts Mill Landing, Century Park West and Arbor Terrace.

Police told Channel 2’s Ross Cavitt they have obtained surveillance video and will use it to try to identify the thieves.
