WRPD Alerts Community of Scam Artist

Release date: September 13, 2017

Incident: Known scam artist

Date/Time: September 12, 2017/ approximately 2:14PM

Location: 2620 Watson Boulevard, parking lot of Michael’s 

The Warner Robins Police Department would like to make the public aware of a scam artist that is making his way around our city. 

49 year old Frank Garmon Jr. is known to local law enforcement for being a scam artist.  His scam usually begins with a story about how he needs money. Sometimes he says he ran out of gas and needs some money to get up the road. Other times he tells people his vehicle broke down and he needs a jump start. Recently,  he jumped into the passenger seat of a driver’s car and asked for money.

Garmon is not known to be violent or threatening.

Law Enforcement is doing everything we can to ensure the public is aware of this scam artist. 

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when shopping, traveling, or walking to your vehicle alone: 

  • Please be aware of your surroundings at all times, refrain from texting and walking.
  • Please have your keys in your hand with your finger ready to hit the panic button. 
  • Lock your car every time you get out of it, even when pumping gas.
  • Unlock your car only when you are near it.

City of Warner Robins Issues Curfew

Over 37,000 people in Warner Robins are without power leaving several intersections within the city without operable traffic signals. This was one of the main reasons Mayor Randy Toms issued a city-wide curfew beginning at 6PM Monday until 6AM Tuesday.
If you are not conducting legitimate business such as going to or from work, leaving to go to a place of safety, going to the hospital or are a first responder please refrain from using the roadways. All eateries and entertainment venues must close their doors by 8PM. 
The curfew was not to make your lives harder, but to protect you. Several intersections are without power, when the sun sets we have no way of predicting how dark those roadways will be and how much danger that may put you or 1st responders in the area.

Helping Houston Officers After Hurricane Harvey

The city of Houston is reeling from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The scope of the damage is still not known, and may not be fully measured for several weeks. The city has lost so much including one of their officers who drowned trying to make it into work so that he could help others during the storm. 

The Central Georgia community is very generous and has continuously asked us how they can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. An organization in the Houston area is raising money for the officers in Houston that have lost their homes and all of their belongings yet continue to leave their families behind to help others. 100% of all funds raised will go directly to the Houston-area law enforcement community who have suffered severe losses from the floods.
