Fugitives still being sought
Authorities are still looking for two fugitives involved in two separate crimes and cases from more than a week ago, it was learned Tuesday morning.
Joseph David Cain, 29, was staying at 227 Rose Ray Court but departed the residence on the morning of Feb. 7 before deputies with the Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office arrived to serve warrants on him and another man. Cain faces warrants for failure to appear and bond violations.
“We’re still looking for him,” Capt. Frank Copeland said. “He’s done dropped off the face again. Their friends help them, and he might’ve gone to another county.”
Cain is considered to be armed, authorities said.
The East Ellijay Police Department has warrants out on Jessica Marie Allen, 33, of a postal address in Fairmount, for identity fraud, obstruction of an officer and giving false name and date of birth.
Allen was hospitalized after hitting her head on pavement during the arrests of two other people who were with her at Highlands shopping area on Feb. 8. Cobb County authorities refused to take her into custody at Kennestone Hospital because of her medical condition, East Ellijay Chief Larry Callahan said last week, and she was released without the hospital notifying East Ellijay officers.
Chief Larry Callahan said the department has received no leads about Allen’s whereabouts.
“The warrants are out there, but that’s the last update I got,” he said.
Allen was not reported to possess weapons when she was taken to the hospital, according to an incident report.
