The suspect might possibly have tattoos on his neck as well.

CBRE Atlanta has finalized the sale of The Shoppes at Banks Crossing. Craig Taylor, senior vice president within CBRE’s Investment Properties Retail Group, led the sales efforts on behalf of a partnership of Blue Ridge Capital and Halpern Enterprises.
An investor group based in New Jersey, represented by NAI Brannen Goddard, purchased the 163,250-square-foot shopping center, which is anchored by Goody’s.
“With a near-interstate location, The Shoppes at Banks Crossing draws consumers from a wide radius and has led to a strong lease-up” Taylor said. “There is continued leasing potential at this center, with strong tenants such as Aaron’s, The Dollar Tree, Lenox, Hibbett’s Sports, CATO, Coleman and Georgia Theater.”

Strolling through Uptown Lexington, N.C., you will quickly see that it is truly a shopping destination. Antiques, vintage clothing, a fun candy store and an old-fashioned grocery store with the most amazing pimento cheese are just a few of the stops to include during your visit. Be sure to also spend some time at Mission Pottery, where you can create your very own master piece as well as have a cup of coffee from the adjacent Perfect Blend Coffee Shop.
CONRAD & HINKLE
We started off our visit to the downtown area with a stop at Conrad & Hinkle, which opened in 1919, where we sampled the famous pimento cheese. Several in the group quickly bought some to take home. It was wonderful on the crackers in the store and even better at home on white bread. It’s also great as a topper on a hamburger. The store sells 1,500 to 1,600 pounds of the pimento cheese each week.

At approximately 3:45 p.m. today, Banks County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a home invasion on Mount Sinai Road in Lula. Shortly thereafter, a Banks County 9-1-1 call was dispatched out regarding a burglary on Highway 98 in Homer.
“The descriptions that were reported at both scenes by witnesses were similar,” said Sgt. Carissa M. McFaddin, OPS/PIO. “A BOLO was then forwarded to surrounding counties.”
Hall County deputies located a vehicle matching the description in the Lula area and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. This led to a pursuit, which ended shortly due to the driver losing control of the vehicle.
Both the driver, Tommy Woodruff, 34, and the passenger, Debby Bostick, 37, were taken into custody and transported to the Banks County Law Enforcement Center to face felony charges.
Additional felony charges are pending through the Hall County Sheriff's Department stemming from the vehicle pursuit.
