Deputy Sitten had Gordon county 911 check the VIN number on all the vehicles (2014 Black Jeep Compass, 2021 Chevy Camaro, 2021 Ford Ranger, 2016 Mercedes) and found that none of them were listed stolen at the time of the report.

Detective Payne notified Gordon County 911 of this and had them send a “hit” to College Park, and it was confirmed by them. Detective Payne was able to locate a sticker on the part of the vehicle that displayed the true, correct VIN.
