A kidnapping suspect wanted by the Long County Sheriff’s Office is now in custody after he was picked up by Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
At around 4:15 p.m. Friday, BCSO Senior Deputy Jeff White stopped a 2006 Chevrolet Impala on U.S. 301 South for a traffic violation. The driver, Troy Tigner, 27, of Glennville, was arrested for driving without a valid license.
Deputy Mac Edwards, who recently joined the BCSO after working with the Glennville Police Department, recognized Tigner's name and stopped to assist White.
The passenger in the vehicle provided a false name to deputies, however Edwards also recognized him as Rashaad Doe, 26, of Glennville. In addition, Edwards knew that Doe was wanted by the Long County Sheriff’s Office in connection with a kidnapping that happened in its jurisdiction.
Doe was arrested and both he and Tigner were transported to the Bulloch County Jail. Doe later was released to Long County deputies.
