Man accused of stealing Atlanta Falcons decals at Macon store


There was something curious about the shoplifting suspect who told the cops he was in the film business. The alleged thief, a 41-year-old from McDonough, was caught Aug. 18 at the Academy Sports store on Eisenhower Parkway in Macon. According to a Bibb County sheriff’s report, the man tried to steal nearly $400 in merchandise, including a radar detector, gloves, a flashlight and $16 worth of Atlanta Falcons decals. What was odd, though, was that the alleged culprit was carrying a manila envelope with $4,100 cash in it. The suspect, who according to his online profile works as a motion picture grip, was jailed on a theft charge.
