On Friday January 23, 2015 at approximately 1:00 p.m. Qutara Pryor (21 year old black female) was last seen at her residence in Lithia Springs, GA getting into a Turquoise van with a white male subject.

Qutara Pryor is a light skinned black female, and is approximately 5 foot 8 inches in height, weighs approximately 180 pounds with has short hair. She has a scar on her right arm from her shoulder down to her bicep that looks like burn tissue, and a tattoo on her right hip of the word LOVE. Ms. Pryor was last seen wearing a pink hooded sweatshirt with a South Georgia college logo on the front, black legging pants, and black combat boots.

Qutara was supposed to report to work on Saturday January 24, 2015 but never showed up to work or called her employer. Her family or friends have had no contact with her since last Friday January 23, 2015. Ms. Pryor's family and friends stated that is unlike her to go over a 24 hour period without contacting them, or posting anything on social media.

Her family does not know the white male subject that she left with on Friday January 24, 2015 but stated they believe that she possibly met this subject on a dating site.

Ms. Pryor's family and the Douglas County Sheriff's Office are concerned for her safety and would like to locate her. Investigators do not believe any foul play is involved at this time, and we are asking for help from the public. We encourage people who may have seen Qutara, or know of her location, to please contact Investigator Joe Williams at 648-486-1234 or email at jwilliams@sheriff.douglas.ga.us. You can also call our tip line at 678-486-1253.

There are male subjects calling residents of Douglas County, or people that have lived in Douglas County, stating that they are either Lieutenant William Lashley and/or Captain Timothy Pounds from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. These male subjects are claiming that they have a warrant for you for a Failure to Appear for jury duty warrant. They are telling potential victims to go immediately to a Rite Aid or Kroger to purchase vouchers. The subjects explain that you have to go to Kroger and have to have cash but, if you go to a Rite Aid, you can use a credit/debit card. The subjects advise the victim to purchase 5 vouchers in a total amount of $2,385.00. The suspects want to stay on the phone with you while you are doing this, and will ask for a cell phone number in order to keep in contact with the victim during the transaction. The subjects want the victim to activate the voucher and ask for the number off the vouchers to confirm that they have been activated. The subjects have said then to take the vouchers to the sheriff's office and if the vouchers are not activated the complaints will go to jail. They have been very forceful and intimidating during the reported calls. The phone number that the suspects are giving is 770-558-5860 and when you call it back, it states you have reached Captain Timothy Pounds with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. They have even called the victims back saying that they hope the victims have good home owner insurance for fires as a means of intimidation. The suspects are also saying that they know where the victims live and they have GPS trackers and are watching.

This is a scam that has been circulating throughout the metro Atlanta area and has finally reached Douglas County. We will never contact you by phone on a matter pertaining to this! Please notify us as soon as possible if you receive one of these types of calls so we can locate these subjects and put them in jail.

Strong Armed Robbery at 560 Thornton Road Lithia Springs, GA 30122

On Tuesday December 23, 2014 at approximately 5:07 pm the Douglas County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call of a strong-armed person-to-person robbery at the On Point Hair Salon at 560 Thornton Road in Lithia Springs, GA.

The victim stated that an older male subject (later identified as Larry Cunningham date of birth 04/15/1956) opened the door to the salon and stated to the victim that he had a relative that was selling iPads for Christmas. The victim then stated a male subject (later identified as Christopher Cross date of birth 01/08/1979) entered the salon and stated he was selling the iPads and subject Cross stated that he worked for a major electronics retailer and the company had received too many iPads and that they (subject Cross and Cunningham) were attempting to sell these iPads for cheap. The victim was approached by subject Cross and subject Cross was speaking with the victim about the iPads when the victim noticed that the iPads subject Cross had were fake.

At this time, the victim stated that subject Cross grabbed a work apron that belonged to the victim that was lying at the work station where the victim and subject Cross was talking that contained the victims cash money from the day and some other items belonging to the victim in the pockets of the victims work apron and ran out the door and jumped into vehicle. The victim was able to give detailed descriptions to our dispatchers of both male subjects and the vehicle that the subjects were driving. The subjects Cross and Cunningham was both arrested without incident by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and being held at the Douglas County Adult Detention Center for Robbery with no bond.

We do not believe that this is the first time these two subjects have attempted this type of activity before on selling these fake iPads in the west metro Atlanta area.
