Wal Mart Shooting Suspect Arrested


From Glynn County PD:

Glynn County GA—After the incident in the store parking lot, surveillance video and still images were shared by a department wide email. A GCPD patrol officer recognized the suspect from a prior safety and education contact for a minor traffic infraction. Additional research located an image from an E-Citation for a separate traffic offense. The suspect was even wearing the same hat from the store video. Investigators and Command Staff spent several hours yesterday afternoon attempting to locate the suspect at numerous addresses in Glynn and Brantley County to no avail.

About8:03 PM, an officer patrolling baker 5 (Altama corridor) observed the suspect vehicle pulling into the Arby’s on Altama Connector. Other units responded to assist, with the second unit being able to clearly see and identify the suspect in the driver’s seat. Officers conducted a high risk traffic stop and took the suspect into custody. The suspect resisted his arrest by attempting to pull away from officers and physically resisting efforts to secure him. He was taken into custody without injury to officers or the suspect.

ARRESTED: TRACY DREW GREEN, W/M, 24 years old, Nahunta GA

Charges:

Aggravated Assault (Felony)

Terroristic Threats (Felony)

Willful Obstruction of officer (Misdemeanor)

Chief of Police Battiste would like to commend the officer who was able to initially identify the suspect within moments of the email. Traffic enforcement is often a subject of controversy for many departments, yet, this suspect was identified and located by officers being alert, knowing their areas and making safety and education contacts.
