Calhoun Times - - FRONT PAGE - By Brandi Owczarz

Ac­cord­ing to the Cal­houn Po­lice De­part­ment, of­fi­cers re­sponded to a call in ref­er­ence to a bur­glary at Cal­houn Drug Co., lo­cated at 450 Red Bud Road NE in Cal­houn, in the early morn­ing hours of Tues­day, Aug. 18.

Around 2: 23 a. m., po­lice ar­rived after re­spond­ing to an alarm at the busi­ness and dis­cov­ered the win­dow miss­ing from the phar­macy’s driv­ethru win­dow. Of­fi­cers then checked a door on the east side of the build­ing and found it to be open.

Upon en­ter­ing the build­ing, of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered the driv­ethru cash reg­is­ter had ex­ten­sive dam­age and had been bro­ken into; all the cash in­side the reg­is­ter had been taken and only loose change re­mained.

After view­ing video sur­veil­lance, a war­rant was served on Thurs­day, Aug. 30 for the ar­rest of Jawanza Maurice Mathis, 24, of 3760 Brookcrest Cir­cle in De­catur on sec­ond­de­gree felony bur­glary charges.

Mathis re­mained in cus­tody at press time.
