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.]

[NARRATIVE #1 on February 24, 2022]

On February 24, 2022 at approximately 2:40 pm, I was dispatched to the Holly Springs Police Department in reference to a walk-in who needed a police report.

I arrived a few minutes later and met with [WITNESS #1] and his father, [VICTIM #1], in the lobby of the police department. I asked [WITNESS #1] what was going on. [WITNESS #1] informed me that in September of 2018, [VICTIM #1] was robbed, to which his wallet and United States Green Card were stolen. [WITNESS #1] provided me with a case number from the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, who took the report in September of 2018. Over the past few years, he has been having issues with identity fraud.

In 2019, [VICTIM #1] received a tag documentation for a 2018 Dodge Challenger with Georgia license plate [REDACTED]. Neither [VICTIM #1] nor [WITNESS #1] have ever purchased a Dodge Challenger. He stated that the car received a citation for using the Express Lanes without a Georgia PeachPass and provided me with the documentation showing the Challenger and the violation.

According to [WITNESS #1], the person who registered the vehicle paid the citation for the car. [WITNESS #1] canceled the registration for the car after it appeared in 2020. They again cancelled the registration on February 23 of this year when they found that the person who bought the car through Carvana, re registered the Challenger for the 2022 year. The address listed on the paperwork came back to [300 BLOCK] Skipper Pl. NW, APT. [REDACTED] in Atlanta, but still registered to [VICTIM #1]. [WITNESS #1] was given a business card with the case number on it and was informed on how to obtain a copy of the report for his records. I then went back in service.

[NARRATIVE #2 on July 26, 2022]

On 07/26/2022, at approximately 1037 hours, I was dispatched to 545 South Fairground Street in reference to a prisoner transport. Upon arrival, I made contact with Detective Burns in the main lobby. Detective Burns stated that he was placing a female under arrest and needed me to transport the female, who I later identified as Shereka Florence, to the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center.

I placed Shereka in handcuffs and checked for proper fitting by double locking it with her hands in the front and escorted her to my patrol vehicle. Before placing Shereka in the rear of my patrol car, Shereka requested to secure her purse containing several cell phones and her wallet in the trunk of her vehicle. Detective Woods and I placed the purse in the trunk, and we locked the vehicle manually by pressing the lock button located on the driver’s side door. Moments later, I placed Shereka in the rear of my vehicle and secured her in a seatbelt. I transported her to Cherokee County Adult Detention Center and turned her over to the jail staff without incident.
