Da- vie, 28, of Hines- ville, was charged DAVIE with shoplifting and booked into the Monroe County Jail According to the incident report, at about 6:34 p.m Cpl. Timothy Kendrick of the Forsyth Police Depart- ment went to the Chevron station on Tilt College Drive where the store's owner said a Department of Correc- tions cadet shoplifted from his store. The owner showed Kendrick the store's video surveillance, which showed a male cadet in a GDC uni- form walk to the counter. The cadet, later identified as Davie, asked the owner for a cigarette pack from behind the counter. As the owner turned around, Davie took three 5-hour energy shots and stuck them in his pocket. Davie then left the store without paying for the energy shots and got into a GDC Van. Kendrick then went across the street to the GDC at Tfft College and notified the on- duty officer about the situation. The on-duty officer told Ken- drick there were 212 total cadets and said they could either go door-to-door to find the suspect or bring all of the cadets outside in a single formation. Kendrick told the on-duty officer to get all of the cadets in formation. Kendrick then asked the offending cadet to voluntarily step forward. But none of the cadets did so. A female cadet who was also in the store at the time of the theft then told Kendrick she thought the Continued from 1B Spalding's Jarah Jackson made a wing )unaper to halt mo- mentarily a 15-2 MP run, but Shannon fired back shortly before halftirne with two more three-pointers for a total of five in the ftrst half as MP led by as many as 17 before settling for a 13-point halftime advantage. In the third quarter Spalding stopped settling for as many jung rs and began finding success around the rim. The Jaguars opened the period on a 17-8 spurt to trim MP's lead to four at 49-45. However, NIP was sparked by the return of guard Brandon Hogan, who sat much of the game in foul trouble, and the Bulldogs fin- ished the third period on a 4-0 run thanks to a pair of Zellner layups to take a 5345 lead through three periods. Spalding stayed dose early in the fourth quarter, cutting MP's lead down to six at 62-56 mid- way through the period. But in their most important contest to date, the Bulldogs responded to the chanenge as W dliams and Zellner converted back- to-back layups in traffic with Zdlner adding a free throw on top ofhis bucket to put MP back ahead by 11 at 67-56 with 3:53 to pla Spalding would cut it back to seven with just over two minutes to play after back-to-back three-pointers, but Zdlner would answer with two free throws to give MP a 75-66 lead.

Davie told Kendrick that the theft was "an accident ' but Kendrick responded that putting items in your pocket while the owner's back was tumed was not accidental. Kendrick then searched Davie and found in his wallet a Georgia State Patrol (GSP) ID card despite Davie not being employed by GSP. Officer Mitchel Bell of the Forsyth Police De- partment then took Davie back to the Chevron station, where the owner identi- fied him as the suspect. After Davie told Kendrick he wanted to make things right with the owner, Davie paid for the item he had already drank and retumed the other energy drinks that were still in his pocket. Bell then took Davie to the Monroe County Jail. nominees "2 Just in time for Valen- posal. -, on Frida), Feb. 8.
