Police look for suspect involved in domestic dispute

by WES MAYER

On Tuesday, a young man fled from Newnan Police Department officers, and has so far managed to elude arrest.

According to Newnan Police Department Detective Sgt. Vansant, late Monday, officer Aaron Howard was dispatched to 101 Pope St. in reference to a mother having problems with her son. Her son, Obrein Callaway, had thrown a brick through a sliding glass window at her house and she’d notified police, according to reports. Howard was not able to locate Callaway at his mother’s house, however.

Howard spotted Callaway Tuesday morning on Glenn Street, Vansant said. When Howard approached Callaway, the suspect fled. Chasing him on foot, Howard pursued Callaway into a wooded area and lost sight of him.

Vansant and other officers arrived on the scene and set up a perimeter around the area, and a Coweta County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit heard the radio transmission and went to their location.

After 30 minutes of searching with the sheriff’s office search dogs, officers were unable to locate Callaway. According to Vansant, it is most likely that someone had allowed Callaway to hide in their apartment, but officers did not have the authority to search any of the nearby households at the time.

According to Vansant, officers were confident they would apprehend Callaway by the end of the day and find out exactly why he was running.
