Rossville man arrested after suspicious package incident at Armory
A Rossville, Ga. man was arrested Friday morning after leaving a suspicious package at the Army National Guard Armory in Calhoun.
According to Calhoun Police Chief Garry Moss, the CPD has charged Kenneth Lebron Medley, 55, in connection with a suspicious package left at the local Armory, located at 300 North River Street in Calhoun.
At approximately 7:15 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 15, a white male, later identified as Medley, entered onto the property of the National Guard Armory and spoke with guardsmen, demanding they hold a package for President Donald Trump, according to the CPD. Medley then left the premises and traveled south on River Street. A deputy with the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office made contact with Medley on Highway 53 near Plainville and initiated a traffic stop.
“The item does not appear to contain anything that would pose a threat; however, we will continue to investigate this incident in an effort to find a definitive answer as to why the package was left at this particular location, and to uncover any possible threats that may exist in connection with this incident,” said CPD Captain Tony Pyle.
Early Monday, Sept. 18, investigators with the CPD released the contents of the package, which included three blank notebooks, several picture frames with stock photographs and other papers, described as trash by an officer.
Medley has been charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass and one misdemeanor county of dumping/disposing litter on public or private property.
