The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit in cooperation with the U.S. Marshals arrested two suspects in the State of Washington on January 24, 2019. Warrant #16-W-2524 for Roderick Cornell Jones B/M 04/17/1982 was issued for the offenses of Aggravated Child Molestation (2 counts) and Statutory Rape (2Counts). Warrant #16-W-2525 for Laura Saucedo W/F 01/10/1980 was issued for the offense of Child Molestation (3 counts) and Aggravated Child Molestation (2 counts) for incidents occurring in September of 2012 involving a child under the age of 16 when the suspects lived in Cobb County.
In December 2018, all leads for the suspects had grown cold and their whereabouts were unknown. Investigators with the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit discovered the suspects had fled to the State of Washington and changed their names in order to hide from law enforcement. Through excellent investigation work the suspects were identified, located and arrested in Kitsap County Washington thru cooperation with the US Marshals and the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. The suspects are currently in custody and awaiting extradition to Cobb County, Georgia for prosecution.
Fugitive unit arrest murder and racketeering suspect from Glynn County, GA. The Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force along with the Cobb County Fugitive Unit served the warrant on 12/14/2018 and was taken into custody at his mother’s apartment without incident and placed in the Cobb County Jail.
A Marietta man was arrested Wednesday on charges he held up a St. Louis-area casino and fired shots at an armed security guard. Illinois prosecutors charged Daryl V. Muhammad, 42, with armed robbery/discharging of a firearm and aggravated battery with a fireman earlier this month, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Cobb County sheriff’s deputies and U.S. marshals tracked him to a business on Canton Road, and he was booked into the county jail Wednesday night. Muhammad was one of three men wanted in connection with the Sep. 17, 2017, armed robbery at the Casino Queen in East St. Louis. They are accused of wearing guns and carrying rifles when they entered the casino just before 3 a.m. and fired shots, hitting the security guard, the Post-Dispatch reported. The guard has since recovered from serious internal injuries.
While there were patrons inside at the time, no one else was injured, according to the newspaper. The men allegedly made off with money from the casino’s cash drawers. The other two are still wanted by authorities. Muhammad was being held without bond, jail records show, and is expected to be extradited to Illinois for prosecution.
