On Wednesday, June 26, 2024, around 4:00 A.M., a Crisp County Sheriff’s Deputy was patrolling near Omar Heights looking for a possible stolen truck that had been spotted in the area. The Deputy saw a truck in the area, and while he attempted to stop, the driver sped up and failed to stop. After a brief pursuit involving reckless driving, the truck stopped.

Three male occupants were in the truck: a 16-year-old (driver), a 15-year-old (passenger), and a 19-year-old (passenger). All three were arrested and subsequently handed over to the Cordele Police Department, as the vehicle theft occurred within city limits.
