Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 05/15/22 at 0843 hours, I was dispatched to the front parking lot of the sheriff’s office to take a report for threats/harassment for [200 BLOCK] Wade Rd, Taylorsville GA.

Upon my arrival, I met with the complainant/ victim, [VICTIM #1]. [VICTIM #1] began to tell me that she was experiencing harassment from her ex-husband’s new wife, [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. [VICTIM #1] said that she had told her to stop contacting her and that she received text messages from her in a group chat this morning at 0630, which woke her up.

[VICTIM #1] then began to describe a different crime, terroristic threats, which occurred between her ex-husband, Cody Perkins, and her as well as his parents. [VICTIM #1] said that she was on the phone with Cody’s mother, [VICTIM #2], when she received a phone call from Cody. [VICTIM #1] said that [VICTIM #2] answered his phone call and added [VICTIM #1] to a three way phone call so she could hear what was being said.

[VICTIM #1] began to describe that she heard Cody say that he wished that she was dead, that [VICTIM #2] was dead, and that [VICTIM #2]’s husband, [VICTIM #3], was dead as well. She said that he said that he would put a bullet into all of their heads. [VICTIM #1] said that he also said that he was going to get full custody of their daughter and make sure that she never saw her again.

[VICTIM #1] was in the vehicle with the phone playing on bluetooth in the car when she was listening to the phone call, and her friend, [WITNESS #1], was in the vehicle listening to phone call as well. [WITNESS #1] was still in the passenger seat so I went and began to speak with her.

[WITNESS #1] began to tell me that she heard on the phone call, Cody saying that he wished his parents were dead as well as [VICTIM #1], and that he would put a bullet in all of their heads. I asked [WITNESS #1] if she had ever met Cody before and she said that she did. I then asked her if she recognized the voice on the phone as Cody and she said that she did. I gathered all of [WITNESS #1]’s information to list as a witness.

I provided [VICTIM #1] with a case card and then went to call [VICTIM #2] at the phone number provided by [VICTIM #1].

[VICTIM #2] answered the phone and I began to ask her about the incident. [VICTIM #2] confirmed that the phone call was around 0823 hours this date and that she and [VICTIM #1] had been being harassed by [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. [VICTIM #2] said that she believed that [REDACTED BY AGENCY] had called Cody and told him that she was being harassed by [VICTIM #1] and herself.

[VICTIM #2] said that she was on the phone with [VICTIM #1] talking about the texts from [REDACTED BY AGENCY] when Cody called her. [VICTIM #2] said that she thought the phone call was going to be bad and [VICTIM #1] had the idea that she could just add her to the call so she could hear what was said.

[VICTIM #2] said that Cody began to yell at her and be belligerent on the phone. [VICTIM #2] said that he said that he wished he had never been adopted by her and [VICTIM #3], and that he wished they were dead as well as [VICTIM #1]. [VICTIM #2] said that Cody then said he would put a bullet into all of their heads.

[VICTIM #2] also told me that her phone was on Speakerphone and that [VICTIM #3] heard what he said as well. I asked [VICTIM #2] where Cody was and she said that he is in the National Guard and is gone on drill for two weeks, which started 05/14/22. [VICTIM #2] is not aware of where he is at as the drill sessions occur at different places each time.

Based on the statements from the victims and the witness, I applied for and arrest warrant for three counts of terroristic threats and acts under the family violence act. I obtained the arrest warrants for Cody, warrant numbers; CE-0153417, CE-0153418, and CE-0153419.

The warrants and victim sheets were logged into the bonding window at the jail.

Nothing further.
