CRISP COUNTY- December 6, 2023
On December 8, 2023, at approximately 3:20 A.M., a Crisp County Sheriff’s Deputy was patrolling the city limits of Cordele when he attempted to stop a silver Honda Pilot. After a brief chase, three occupants in hoodies fled from the vehicle on foot while the vehicle was still in drive on W 19th Ave. The vehicle continued to roll and stopped against a tree in the 300 block of W 19th Ave.
Deputies found a backpack, gun, two magazines, and two cell phones inside the vehicle. The Deputy contacted the vehicle owner and determined the vehicle had been stolen without the owner’s knowledge. Crisp County Sheriff’s Office is investigating this incident. After Deputies left the victim’s residence, Crisp County E-911 dispatched the Cordele Police Department
regarding a stolen vehicle from E 17th Avenue. Crisp County Sheriff’s Deputies located the unoccupied, stolen vehicle in the 27th 1⁄2 alley and notified the Cordele Police Department. Crisp County Sheriff’s Office and Cordele Police Department are investigating these incidents.
Entering autos and attempts to enter autos were reported to Crisp County E-911 into the early morning hours.
