Attempted Carjacking, Burglary

Newnan man victimized twice in one week

by Wes Mayer

A resident of East Washington Street in Newnan had his home burglarized early Thursday.

The victim, Mr. Donnahoo, was one of the seven people involved in the attempted carjacking spree by a juvenile on Sept. 6. Donnahoo got into an altercation with the juvenile attempting to steal his vehicle and was transported to the hospital afterwards.

At some time early Thursday, Donnahoo’s home was burglarized. According to Newnan Police Officer Jody Stanford’s report, Donnahoo woke up Thursday to find his 50-inch flat-screen television, three remote controls and a Crossman air-powered pistol had been stolen.

Donnahoo told authorities the stolen items were still at his home when he went to bed around 3 a.m., but they were gone when he woke up around noon on Thursday.

According to Stanford’s report, there were no signs of forced entry into the home, and Donnahoo was uncertain if he remembered to lock his door. The investigation was turned over to Sgt. Denver Atwood.
