Thieves in the early morning hours of March 5 made off with $8,000-10,000 in merchandise after burglarizing a Peachtree City package store.

Officers on March 5 at 4:41 a.m. responded to the Georgian Package store in the Kedron Village retail area on an alarm activation call.

Police reports noted that officers found that the glass in the store’s front door had been broken. Officers subsequently checked throughout the building but the burglars had gone.

The owner was notified and arrived on scene, telling officers that items were missing from inside the business and giving an estimated account for what was missing, as well as an estimated value for the stolen goods, according to reports.

Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt said three or more people entered the store and stole a minimum of $8,000-10,000 of liquor.

In another case, Newnan resident Deonta M. Terrell, 24, was charged on March 4 with distributing obscene materials.

Hyatt said a local woman, who had been dating Terrell, said he sent photos and videos of her to a number of different people and threatened to post them on social media.

Hyatt said the photos and videos included the victim in an indecent state.

In a separate case, officers on March 5 responded to an Iron Oak Drive residence regarding a possible theft.

After discussing the situation with the complainant and his wife, it was determined that the older couple had been deceived in an internet scam and sent $41,500 in cash to two different addresses in California, said Hyatt.

  1. That Kedron Village Shopping Center seems to be an ever-increasing target and location for CRIME and most of these CRIMINALS are coming down Georgia Highway 74 from Atlanta, Fulton County and surrounding areas. Perhaps it is time for the Peachtree City Police Department leadership in conjunction with the City leaders and the business establishments in that shopping area to consider establishing a PERMANENT POLICE POST/PRESENCE in that particular area of our beautiful city which is under GROWING ASSAULT from these THUGS and CRIMINALS! I urge our city leaders to give serious consideration to such a proposal. Clearly, we need a GREATER POLICE PRESENCE – both visible and under cover – in this particular area! One only needs to look at what is taking place at the Fayette Pavillion on Georgia Highway 85 to get a clear picture and understanding of the CRITICAL NEED for such a proposal to be acted upon – IMMEDIATELY!
