Townsend in Custody

MEDIA RELEASE

 

For Immediate Release                                                                                  November 14, 2013 

 

                                                          Townsend in Custody

 

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

 

            Sheriff Jimmy Harris reports that he received a text last night letting him know that Townsend was coming back into the County and that they would call to let him know when Townsend arrived at the residence. Townsend wanted to tell his side of the story to the Sheriff and if the Sheriff would come alone that he would turn himself in. “I told them I would be there when they called.” When the Sheriff pulled up at the residence in Dawson he advised Townsend to come out. Townsend was at a friends house when he called to turn himself in to the Sheriff this morning. Travis Townsend is in custody at the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

            Sheriff Harris says “You know that there is always two sides of the story and Townsend wanted to tell his side. We put a lot of man power into locating Townsend and we are glad he turned himself in. We are also glad that the victim Bobby Harper is doing ok.”
