CRIME WRAP: Man booked at county jail for 24th time: road rage incident reported
A man with a lengthy criminal history reportedly threatened to shoot up the Food Depot on New Year's Eve after he was busted by employees trying to steal some steaks and sardines.
Julius Franklin White, 49, was arrested without incident and charged with terroristic threats and shoplifting. White reportedly filled up a bookbag with steaks and sardines before leaving the store. Two employees followed White out of the store, according to the police report, and White became angry and embarrassed, stating "he was coming back to 'spray down the store' and for (one of the employees) to follow him outside as he had something to 'take care of him.'"
The arrest marked the 24th time since 1991 that White has been booked at the county jail. Past charges include arson, robbery, kidnapping, sexual battery, aggravated assault, battery, criminal trespass entering auto, obstruction of an officer and terroristic threats.
White has had two extended stays in state prison, the first from 1995-2003 for arson, interference with government property and obstruction of an officer, as well as a stint between 2006–2008 for sexual battery and false imprisonment.
Meanwhile, a road rage incident was reported on Jan. 6, and the suspect reportedly followed the victim's car through town and pointed "a green laser on a handgun" at the victim. Lonnie Jerome Floyd, was charged with aggravated assault. Recovered in Floyd's white Toyota pickup truck were roughly a half-dozen different types of ammunition, as well as a 9 millimeter handgun, according to the incident report.
The woman said that she was coming from the river bridge and was at the red light by the Jet store. She was "trying to merge from the outside lane to the inside lane when a white in color 2004 Toyota Sequoia...wouldn't let her get over." The woman added that she "then slowed down and honked her horn," which Floyd apparently didn't appreciate.
Added the incident report: "(The woman) said Floyd still wouldn't let her over after they began to approach Georgia College. (The woman) stated she observed a green laser on a handgun coming from Floyd's vehicle. (She) was able to get a description of the vehicle and the tag information to dispatch."
A BOLO was issued on Floyd's truck and the Flock security camera in Carrington Woods picked up a hit. A Milledgeville Police Department officer then located the vehicle in the Circle K parking lot by the Carrington Woods apartments, and Floyd was arrested without incident.
