“On 08/19/2015 about 7 p.m. Meriwether County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 6900 block of Primrose Road, Greenville, Ga. in regard to an occupied residence being entered in which the homeowner was assaulted. Our investigation into this matter revealed that the resident was inside his home when a known subject identified as Greg Wilson entered the residence without authority. At that time Wilson began to physically assault the homeowner. The homeowner was severely injured in this assault. After the assault Wilson reportedly took an item from within the residence and outside in the yard area of the incident location. Wilson fled the location prior to our arrival. The homeowner required medical treatment for the injuries he received in the assault. Through further investigation into this incident our investigators were able to obtain arrest warrants for Greg Wilson, W/M, 52 years of age, address 48 Smith Street, Grantville, Ga. Wilson was arrested for the offenses of Aggravated Battery, Burglary 1st Degree and Theft by Taking. Wilson was booked into the Meriwether County Sheriff’s Office Jail on bond set at $10,500.00.” Sheriff Smith stated.
“We also have arrest warrants for two suspects identified as being the perpetrators in a burglary in the 2100 block of Montgomery Road and three entering auto offenses which occurred in the 100 block of Joshua Lane, the 900 block of Cousins Road, and the 4800 block of Primrose Road, Greenville, Ga. Our investigation led us to obtaining a total of 8 warrants for Jason Watts, W/M, 40 years of age, address 230 Lucille Road, Greenville, Ga and Clarissa Allison, W/F, 23 years of age, address 43 Brannon Street, Whitesburg, Ga. These two offenders have been implicated in numerous thefts and burglaries in multiple surrounding jurisdictions. They had been on the run for issued arrest warrants for a period of time prior to their capture. Both are currently in custody in the Carroll County Jail in regard to similar charges in that jurisdiction. They will be brought back to Meriwether County to be booked on our warrants as soon as they can be released to our custody.” Sheriff Smith advised.
