Social Circle PD on lookout for suspicious vehicle close to library

An incident that allegedly happened last Friday, May 11, 2018, has Social Circle Police Department putting extra patrol around the Social Circle Library. Social Circle Police Chief Tyrone Oliver said despite being there every day since then, the alleged suspicious vehicle has not been seen again. However, the extra patrol activity will continue.
“We have been and will continue to provide extra patrol in the area during dismissal hours. We encourage everyone to report any and all suspicious activity by calling 911,” Oliver said in a press release.
At about 3:10 p.m. on that day, SCPD responded to a report of a suspicious person near the Social Circle Library. An 11-year-old juvenile reported that she was walking to the library from the Social Circle Elementary school when an older model grey vehicle pulled off the side of the road and an older white man rolled down the window and asked if she needed a ride. The child got scared and ran to the library and called her mother, who called for police assistance.
The man and vehicle were described as:
  • Older White Male
  • Tattoo on the lower right side of his neck (possible rose or gun black in color)
  • Older model four-door vehicle
  • Rear door windows were tinted

Oliver said that they haven’t seen anybody or vehicle matching that description, but will continue to monitor the area until school is over. He urges anyway who sees anything suspicious to immediately report it.

Gwinnett Police are actively working a similar case in Dacula that reportedly  happened on May 9  involving a younger suspect driving pickup truck with flashing lights. In that case, a man claiming to be a “cop” allegedly tried to pull over two teenage girls in their vehicle as the were driving home from school. He, however, was in a pickup truck and was described as a heavy set white male, between 20 and 30 years of age, brown shaggy hair with no facial hair, light blue eyes, tattoo on the inside of his upper left arm, southern accent. He was wearing a light blue shirt and tan shorts with a knife case on his belt.

Detectives in Gwinnett are still actively working that case and are looking for additional witnesses or possible victims. If anyone has any information or explanation of these events they should call lead Detective Dorminy directly at 770-513-5345.
