From Staff Reports

David Turner Jr., 26-year-old male from Warner Robins, Georgia was arrested August 28, 2018. Turner is charged with one count of criminal trespass, seven counts of entering auto, 20 counts of financial transaction card theft, 20 counts of identity fraud, 572 counts of financial transaction card fraud and 572 counts of receiving goods from fraudulent charges.

On Wednesday August 22, 2018, the Crisp County Sheriff’s Office was requested by Cordele Intermodal Service to investigate a theft.

Investigator B. Bray was assigned to investigate. Investigator Bray was able to determine that from January 2018 to August 2018 an ex-employee David Turner Jr. trespassed on the property and stole gas cards located inside the company trucks. Turner then used the stolen gas cards and sold fuel to truckers for half price that was then charged to the Cordele Intermodal Service gas cards. Cordele Intermodal has audited their records and has determined a loss over $200,000.00. Warrants were taken and the Houston County Sheriff’s Office assisted in executing the warrants.

Sheriff Billy Hancock would like to thank the Houston County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this case.
