Woman: Man retaliated over drug issue

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman reported having her telephone taken by a man who later came to her residence and took her dog, which he told her would prevent police from arresting him.

Kathy Williams, of the 300 block of Fourth Avenue Southeast, reported to the Moultrie Police Department her boyfriend began hitting the dashboard and a window of her car at about 11:30 a.m. The man became upset because she would not give him money for crack cocaine.

Williams told police that when she stopped and ordered him to get out he refused, but got out with her cell telephone when she tried to call law enforcement. He started walking north on Third Street Southeast with her phone.

At about 12:10 p.m. police were dispatched to Williams’ residence on Fourth Avenue Southeast, where she reported that the man had returned and took her nursing pit bull dog. After throwing her phone at her, he went into the back yard and took the dog, the report said.

He told Williams that law enforcement “would not arrest him if he had the dog with him,” she said.

A short time  later police found the man and the dog. He told police he took the phone to call his case worker to arrange transportation to Thomasville for a court-ordered drug rehabilitation program.

The dog was returned to Williams, who did not wish to press charges. One of the man’s relatives picked him up to take him to the rehabilitation center, police said.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
