Kidnapping report leads to drug, weapons arrests here

By Walter Geiger A 911 call alleging the kidnapping of a four-year-old girl sparked a massive law enforcement responses and two arrests Feb. 26. Clifford Joe Giles reported his daughter had been taken at gunpoint by Patricia Giles, April Smith, 33, and Christopher Long, 44, from his trailer at Bedsole’s mobile home park on Trice Road in Milner about 10:30 a.m. Giles told responding deputies Long pointed the gun at him, saying his wife and daughter were leaving for good and he ‘had Giles’ number’. The trio left with the child in a white Chevy S-10 pickup with an extended cab. Shortly thereafter, Sgt. Jeremy Haire and two GBI agents went to 210 Cook Rd. in Spalding County where Sgt. Michael Brayton had located the truck. The pistol, a Sig Sauer 9 mm., was located and a computer check revealed it had been stolen in Senoia and Long was arrested for possessing it. Smith told the officers the pistol had been stolen by an Austin subject who had been staying with she and Long at another trailer at the mobile home park. She returned there with the officers and consented to a search of the trailer. ‘I don’t want any stolen stuff in my house,’ she told them. A search turned up a spare magazine for the Sig Sauer, meth, marijuana, syringes, plastic baggies and a digital scale. Also found was a sawed off shotgun.
