Senoia man wanted for theft by receiving

by Wes Mayer

The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office is on the lookout for a Senoia area man with six outstanding warrants for his arrest on theft by receiving charges.

The suspect, Marvin “Cookie” Bridges Jr., 46, is wanted for multiple counts of theft by receiving stolen property and faces other charges, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough of the sheriff’s office. Bridges is nicknamed “Cookie” because of his homemade crack cocaine cookies, Yarbrough said.

On Aug. 14, a Pepsi machine was stolen from Williams Grocery on Highway 85 in Haralson, Yarbrough said. Two suspects drove to the store in a truck, tipped over the machine into the bed of the truck and drove away. On Monday, one of the two suspects, William David Thompson, 35, was arrested for theft by taking stolen property. Investigators are still looking for the theft’s other suspect, David Travis Spivey, 45.

However, the Pepsi machine has been recovered, Yarbrough said, and it was found in Bridges’ home on 93 Deep South Road. Investigators also found numerous stolen items on Bridges’ property, including a second Pepsi machine, firearms, cell phones, laptop computers, generators, antique coins and more.

Investigators are still searching for Bridges, described as a 6-foot, 3-inch black male weighing around 188 pounds. Bridges is believed to still be in Coweta County, and any information can be given to Investigator Jon McIntyre in the Criminal Investigations Unit by calling the office at 770-253-1502. The sheriff’s office is in the process of contacting victims of the thefts.
