The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is receiving reports from individuals that they are getting telephone calls. These calls look like they're coming from a 206 area code. The callers are telling the people they have been chosen to receive a government grant through the Department of Health and Human Services for the sums between $7500 and $9000. The catch is that they want you to go and send between $200 and $300 through Wal-Mart Money Gram. This is yet another way to scam people out of their money and/or vital information.

    Tips for Avoiding a Scam:
  • Calls offering "free money" in exchange for pre-paid credit cards or other methods should not be trusted. If you did not apply for a grant or enter a contest personally, the caller is probably trying to scam you.
  • NEVER give out personal information such as your Social Security Number, bank information, and/or date of birth.
  • Many scam callers try to use scare tactics claiming that they know where you live or that you have a warrant out for your arrest. Don't believe them. Better yet, hang up and report the call to your local law enforcement agency.

K9 Division

The Meet & Greet is a yearly event that kicks off the DCSO K9 Unit's "Pennies for Police Service Dogs". The goal of that program is to collect pennies, or other spare change, from elementary and middle schools around Douglas County to donate to "Chase Away K9 Cancer". The three elementary schools, and top middle school, that collect the most donations will receive a special demo visit from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office K9 Unit.

This year's kick-off demo was dedicated to Officer John Flaherty of the Clayton County Police Department. He lost his K9 named Xavier on January 31, 2015, after a tumor on his spleen ruptured. Ofc. Flaherty and K9 Xavier worked together for 9 years keeping the citizens of Clayton County safe. R.I.P. and thank you for your service K-9 Xavier!

This time, the link that was included in the email was not from WalMart, and had the potential to load malware or other insiduous files onto the user's computer. We strongly suggest not to click emailed links, no matter how tempting, unless you are 100% sure the sender can be trusted.

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.
