School Credit Card Surprises Officials
Saturday, 02 March 2013

March 2--  A Montgomery County school system credit card issued years ago to a faculty member turned up in the possession of an accused car thief captured in South Carolina.

ImageThirty-three-year old Charlie Cobb and two Jeff Davis County women were arrested at an Aiken motel in January when police spotted a truck reported stolen from a house on Sandspur Lane in Toombs County.  Police claim the trio was manufacturing methamphetamine in the motel room.

Cobb also had a Walmart credit card issued to the Montgomery County school system.  The card was in the purse of the teacher who lived in the same neighborhood where the truck was stolen and whose purse had been stolen from her vehicle the day of the truck theft.

Montgomery County School Superintendent Randy Rodgers said more than $11,000 in charges had been made on the card by Cobb.  He says the credit card company was notified and has removed the charges from the school account.

Rodgers reports the incident revealed 12 other cards which had been issued over six years ago and have now been revoked.  He said the card in question had no charges on it since 2007.

Montgomery County Deputy Sheriff Greg Caraway says the GBI is handling the Cobb investigation since it involves multiple jurisdictions.
