Wednesday morning: 4 a.m. Outside Monkey Joe’s. Barrow County Officer Phelps looked out over his dashboard at a guy rolling a small safe across the parking lot using a swivel chair. The guy walking all casual until he spotted the patrol car. Phelps still holding his coffee to his lips thought it through. The suspect was wearing a face mask, a hooded jacket, Jeans and a pair of white sneakers. Did he have a gun? Maybe. Phelps wasn’t sure. He called for backup and played it by the book. That’s when the suspect ran for the nearby woods and disappeared.
