Both subjects exiting the store. I tried adding this to the comments but it didn't appear to post.

Here is the second person. Please PM me if you know him.

Please PM us if you can identify the people in the videos. I will upload additional videos to the comments.

Billy Manis was arrested earlier this evening with help from the public, the Auburn Police Department and the Barrow County Sheriff's Office.

Manis is wanted for his involvement in several church burglaries and other burglaries and thefts in the Winder and Barrow County areas. He is reported to have been in Auburn, Winder and Athens over the past week. If you see Manis, contact 911 immediately. Please share this information with your contacts.

The City of Winder held its annual employee appreciation luncheon yesterday and we would like to congratulate the Winder Police Department's Training Coordinator/State Certification Manager, Alicia Schotter, on 10 years of service as an employee with the police department. We also want to congratulate Winder PD's Crime Analyst, Greg Davis, on receiving the annual John Mobley award which is awarded to a member of the police department who displays a high level of dedication and commitment to the agency and the City of Winder.

East Athens Street will be closed tomorrow, 10/5/2017, from North Broad Street to North Jackson Street. The closure will take place from 7:00AM to 1:00PM. Attached is an image of the area that will be closed.

For Immediate Release: Pink Patrol Car Back in Operations The Winder Police Department, with support of Akins Ford, would like to bring positive attention during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by utilizing our pink patrol vehicle during the month of October. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

***Subject has been located*** We are several officers in the area of NEGA Hospital on N Broad St, looking for a patient who left the hospital while trying to get a mental evaluation. He will be a black male 5'6 200lbs 36 years of age wearing a bluish color hospital gown. Please call 911 if you see the subject.

Please PM me if you know who this gentleman is; he may have helped himself to a few items which didn't belong to him. I will post a few other videos in the comments.

If you can identify the gentlemen in the Red Adidas shirt and the Blue Sleeveless shirt, please PM me. We would like to talk them about what occurred just prior to this video. Please understand, I can't share the details yet.

**Traffic Alert Update** We wanted to pass along a list of active road closures. - Sims Road from Fayette Drive to Louis Road. - West Wright Street from 7th Avenue to 6th Avenue - West Wright Street from Hamilton Avenue to North Broad Street. - North Woodlawn Avenue from West Midland Avenue to West Stephens Street. - A small portion of Olevia Street at Hwy 53 is also closed. It is not accessible from the 53 side but the rest of the road is open and accessible from Fayette Drive. - East Wright Street from Dreamland Circle to Dreamland Circle. Public Works is working with Georgia Power to get the roads open. Updates will come as roads begin to open. We appreciate everyone’s patience.

If you can avoid traveling today please continue to stay off the roads. Work crews are continuing to remove down trees and repair power lines. If you must travel, treat all traffic lights that are out as a four way stop. Power crews are very aware of all the outages and have asked everyone to be patient and avoid any down lines completely. They are working with decreased staffing because many of their employees have been sent further south where the damage is more severe, but they are assessing all the damage and working diligently to get everyone's power restored. Please do not call 911 for non-emergency situations such as asking if specific roads are blocked or when your power will be restored. Save those calls for emergencies only as our dispatchers are extremely busy. Stay inside and enjoy the time with family and neighbors if you can. We'll be here working hard to get things back to normal as soon as possible.

To get weather alerts please see Barrow County Emergency Services message below on how to sign up!

UPDATE. Here is a video of the getaway vehicle in reference to the scam last week. There was also a third subject involved. Pictures will be posted of him as well.

***Traffic Alert*** Griffith Street will be closed today, 9/5/2017, from East Wright Street to Shields Street due to sewer repair. Please seek alternate route.

I am posting this for our friends over at Barrow County Sheriff's Department. If you have a tip, please PM me or call Investigator Couch at 770-307-3080 x 3987. He did not have the owner's permission to take those items.

Someone took some items which were not theirs. Please PM me if you recognize the truck and the person in this video.

We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to the Y for presenting us with a check from part of the proceeds from the Summers End Road Race. This money will go towards helping fund our annual Christmas with a Cop program. Thank you for your partnership in creating a special day for the children!

UPDATE: The victim in this case is offering $2,000 cash reward to the person who provides information leading to the arrest of the two individuals pictured below. The conditions placed on this reward are the following: 1. The Winder Police Department is not offering this reward; it is a personal reward offered by Walter Hosch as a private citizen. The Winder Police Department is absolved of any financial responsibility in this reward. 2. The reward is $1,000 for each person; meaning, if you can identify one and it leads to one arrest, you will receive $1,000. If you can identify both, and both get arrested, you will receive the full $2,000. 3. The reward will be given to the first person who reports a name or names to the Winder Police Department via the following options: a. A private Message sent through the Winder Police Facebook Page (Comments will not count.) b. An email sent to c. A phone message to 678-425-6886 d. Or directly to a Winder Police Officer All of these methods will have a Time and Date Stamp to determine who responded first.

Please PM me if you recognize either of the two people in this video. The male with the Black Hat/White Shirt and the female with the Grey Shirt/Shorts. It's possible the phone she has in her hands is not hers and the owner would like it back.

The 35th annual Summer's End Road Race will be held this Saturday August 12th with the 10K beginning at 7:00am, the 5K beginning at 8:15am and the children's fun run beginning at 9:15am. The race will only shut down Broad Street and portions of some side roads for a very brief period. Officers will be assigned to each intersection and will allow cars to continue as soon as it is safe to do so. Our goal is keep the delay to motorists minimal as much as possible while also allowing the runners to have a safe and enjoyable event. Part of the proceeds from this event go to support our annual Christmas with a Cop event so come out and support if you can. We ask that all motorists be patient and attentive to the officers working the event as well as to the runners participating in the event. You can find the specific race routes at the link below:
