TROUP COUNTY, GA - At approximately 1:30 Wednesday morning, Troup County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to a location in the 1200 block of New Franklin Road in reference to a report of Theft which had just occurred.
Troup E-911 advised that a vehicle had been taken by three males, leaving the location in the direction of Highway 27 North. After their arrival on scene, the Deputies made contact with a subject who stated that he was at the location to hang out with a female and her friends which he had met at WalMart, and provided a ride to earlier in the evening.
When he acted on invitation by the female to return to the location, three unknown males attacked him and made off with his car.
The victim further alleged that, as soon as the men left, he discovered his wallet and cell phone were missing and his fleece jacket had been torn. At that time, he located a nearby residence where he could place a call to 911.
Deputies gathered descriptions of the vehicle and of the subjects who fled the scene from witnesses in the neighborhood.
Lookouts were placed through Troup County E-911. Approximately one-and-a-half hours later, Deputies responded to a location inside the 100 block of Wares Cross Road in reference to locating the subjects involved in the earlier incident on New Franklin Road.
