2 SOUGHT FOR STAGED ROBBERY

SAVANNAH, GA (February 27, 2015) Robbery Unit detectives have filed warrants against a man and woman after determining that they staged a robbery of a downtown Savannah parking garage in December.

Cedric Jurete Golden, 25, is being sought for false statements and theft by taking. Deambre Brantley, 23, is being sought for the same two crimes and false report of a crime. They listed the same address on the 4000 block of Ogeechee Road at the time of the incident and now are being sought by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police.

Investigators determined Brantley lied about the reported Dec. 6 robbery of a private parking garage on the 100 block of East Congress Street. Brantley told responding Downtown Precinct Patrol officers that she was working at the lot when a male walked up behind her and demanded money from the business. The investigation revealed Cedric Golden was involved in the incident and was known to Brantley.

Detectives filed the charges Thursday after determining the couple had worked together to steal the money and that Brantley had falsely reported the Robbery.

Metro Police Chief Joseph H. “Jack” Lumpkin Sr. has announced that his officers will file charges against those who obviously file erroneous reports and lie to officers, pointing out the abundance of hours and other resources that are invested in cases only to find they were falsely reported.

Golden has been arrested at least five times by Savannah-Chatham police on charges ranging from burglary to robbery to probation violation.

Anyone with information on the location of either suspect is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

A Tip Line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124 and most area clergy have agreed to serve as liaisons for anyone who would like to share information with police anonymously.

TEEN, 14, INJURED BY CAR

SAVANNAH, GA (February 27, 2015) Traffic officers are investigating a mishap this morning in which a 14-year-old boy received serious injuries when he was run over by a car.

Marquad Smith of the 5500 block of Montgomery Street was transported to Memorial University Medical Center after the 7:33 a.m. incident on Montgomery Street at Birchfield Drive.

Marquad was crossing Birchfield on his way to a school bus stop when he was struck by a car driven by William Buck, 48, of the 200 block of Birchfield Drive. His sister Myesha Smith, 17, also was struck but not injured.

Investigators with the Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department reported Buck stopped at the intersection of Montgomery beside another car and was attempting to turn right when he felt his car hit something and stopped. He saw the victim’s sister beside the car and attempted to back up; not realizing the car was atop the 14-year-old.

Passing citizens, including CWO4 David Longoria, two other soldiers on their way to nearby Hunter Army Air Field and two others, lifted the car off the victim.

MAIT continues to investigate the incident.
