Valdosta, Georgia - June 10, 2011 -

On June 9, 2011 at approximately 2315 hours, the Valdosta Police Department (VPD) responded to 1209 Ponderosa Drive in reference to a theft by entering auto. The victim, Gloria White, advised that she walked outside and saw two African American males inside her car and when she asked what they were doing, they ran. White indicated that she did not see their faces, but was able to give a clothing description. A short time later VPD Officers stopped an African American male, who matched the description. He was identified as Andrew Ashley and they found that Ashley had two active arrest warrants for Probation Violation. Ashley also had property on him that was later identified by White as property taken from the vehicle. After being read his Miranda Warning, Ashley refused to speak to the officers. He was transported to the Lowndes County Jail for the Probation Violations and will be charged with Theft by Entering Auto.

Anyone having any further information regarding this crime or any other crime is urged to contact the Valdosta Police Department at 229-293-3145 or can remain anonymous at 229-293-3091.

    Just another example of a pair of roaches, stealing. No regard for anyone or anything, other than these roaches will not go get a job! If they had 1, they just lost-it! Word!

    African American? What the heck is that? Born and raised in the U.S. for generations definitely does NOT make them African. They are Black Americans is more like it.

      Exactly HonestAbe..... I have been singing this song for years. They are NOT African. Probabaly 98% have never been to Africa or their parents or grandparents. They want to be African so bad, GO THERE and DON"T come back. Once they get there, they would beg to come back.
