Barrow County police blotter

The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office reported the following incidents:

THREAT: On Sept. 18, a deputy was dispatched to a Winder home, where a woman reported that she and her boyfriend had an argument because she did not answer his numerous telephone calls. The man began yelling and throwing items against her bedroom wall. When she locked herself inside a closet and called for help, the boyfriend left the house.

MAN ARRESTED: On Sept. 18, a deputy went to a home on Blueberry Lane, Winder, to serve a warrant on the resident, who was identified as Douglas Kyle Cadle. The deputies arrested Cadle on a charge of possessing marijuana with intent to distribute. During the arrest, the office found a bag containing methamphetamine. Cadle was taken to jail and charged additionally with possession of meth.

TAVERN BURGLARIZED: On Sept. 18, a deputy was dispatched to Shuffles Bar on Atlanta Highway, Winder, where the manager arrived for work and found the back door to the bar open. Pry marks were found on the door and the back office was in disarray. The thieves stole about $3,000.

TOOLS STOLEN: On Sept. 28, a deputy was dispatched to Cedar Ridge Drive, where a man said someone broke into his work truck by breaking the pad locks. The thief took $7,296 worth of tools that belonged to the victim and his employer. About three weeks earlier a neighbor spotted a green Honda or Toyota parked at the location and when the person in this vehicle saw he was being observed, he quickly drove off.

IRS SCAM: On Sept. 28, a deputy was dispatched to a home in Bethlehem, where a woman reported a person with a foreign accent has been calling her claiming to be with the IRS and he wants her to send him money by MoneyGram or through Western Union. The woman told the man she was unaware how to do this and the man said he would walk her through the process. When the woman said she wanted to discuss it with her husband, the man gave her 45 minutes or he was going to have her arrested. The woman called for a deputy, who advised her to report the scam to the IRS. He warned the woman not to give out any of her personal information.

BURGLARY: On Sept. 29, a deputy was dispatched to meet with a woman who reported her Lincoln Drive home was burglarized between Sept. 10 and this day. The thief stole more than $5,000 worth of “irreplaceable jewelry.” There was no forced entry, so she believes the crook is someone who knows her. Among the items missing are an engagement ring, diamond anniversary band and earrings.

PAYMENT COMPLAINT: On Sept. 29, a deputy was dispatched to Applebee’s in Bethlehem, where an employee reported that a white man and woman had a meal and drinks and then left without paying their $41 bill. The employee said she went into the parking lot to tell the man he had not paid the bill, but he replied “I’m just not going to pay the bill.” He then drove off in a gray 2005 Nissan Altima. The couple is believed to reside in Winder.

BURGLARY: On Sept. 25, a deputy was dispatched to a home on Bethlehem Church Road, where someone entered by breaking open a door causing at least $200 damage. The thief took $1,690 worth of property, including a drill, two TVs, paperwork, coins and some silver items.

MAN ARRESTED: On Sept. 26, a deputy was working traffic at Georgia Highway 211 near the Bethlehem Post Office, when his radar picked up a vehicle approaching at a high rate of speed. The deputy turned on his emergency equipment and the Dodge Caravan pulled into a parking lot, ran a stop sign and continued on the highway. The van stopped on Yearwood Road, where the driver and passenger exited and began running on foot.

The deputy chased and caught up with the driver, who refused to get on the ground and had a strange smile and blank stare on his face. The deputy hit the man in the leg with a baton, and the suspect finally laid on the ground. The driver gave a false name, but he was later identified as Gary Lamont Milsap, who was also wanted on an outstanding warrant charging him with the sale of a controlled substance. Milsap, of Parks Mill Road, was also charged with speeding, attempting to elude, failing to maintain a lane, giving a false name, driving on the wrong side of a road, running a stop sign, driving without a driver’s license and reckless driving.
