Dooly man arrested in stalking cases


CORDELE — A 20-year-old Dooly County man has been arrested on a stalking charge as the result of several reported harassment incidents involving local women.

PFC Clinton Latham of the Cordele Police Department identified the alleged offender as Carl Benard Henry of a 261 Kitchen Street address in Unadilla.

Latham said victims in the cases said the man stalking them was driving a white Oldsmobile. One of them said duct tape had been placed over the license plate.

The car and its owner were located at South Georgia Tech where Henry was picked up for questioning during which officers said they became aware of his involvement with the female complainants. He was then arrested.

In other police activity on Monday, officers:

— Investigated two armed robberies that occurred at convenience food stores.

Sgt. Charles Hill said that employees of Cordele Grocery located at 1310 Seventh St. S. told him they were robbed just before 10 p.m. by a light-skinned black male about 5’6” to 5’9” in height.

After taking an undisclosed amount of money, the gunman, who was wearing a light blue T-shirt and had a light blue rag over his face, ran west on 24th Avenue. A search of the area for the suspect proved fruitless.

Sgt. Jeremy Taylor listed no details for a second armed robbery that reportedly took place just before 9 p.m. at Cordele Food Mart located at 316 24th Avenue E.

— Received two theft complaints.

Montavious Wells, of 309 17th Ave. E., told Lt. Louis New just before 8 p.m. that someone had entered his 1986 Pontiac and had taken a considerable amount of cash he had left in the vehicle.

An employee of Dollar General located on 16th Avenue East told Lt. Lloyd Anderson shortly after 5:30 p.m. that a woman whose identity is known placed a $3.25 bar of soap in her bag and left the store without making payment for it. Police were not immediately able to make contact with the suspect.
