By Bryan Geter Associate Editor Three *women were arrested Sunday after they staged an early morning "holdup and robbery scam," according to the HogansviUe Police Department. The incident occurred at the Humming[bird Chevron on East Main Strut across from Ingles. Tracie Clark and Patricla Ann Jones, both of 406 1/2 East Main St. and Julie Hannah of 202 Greenough St. were all charged with felony theft and robbery of a business, according to Hogansville Assistant Police Chief Mike Craig. REPORTS SHOW Ms. Hannah was working the late shift the night of the robbery. Ms. Clark and Ms. Jones, both former employees, had quit a few days prior to e incident to reported- ly move to Chicago, and staged the ,hotdup nd robbery." Police reports state the women were all in their early 40s and good friends. It was reported $1,901 was taken in the robbery. Craig said the women removed money from the cash registers, broke into poker game machines and took change, and removed the videotape from the surveillance camera. Craig said the trio taped Ms. Hannah's mouth, feet, and hands and left her in the office to give the appearance she was robbed. Jones and Clark then left the store. Craig said he was patrolling the street about 4:2S a.m. and saw Ms. Jones and Ms. Clark leave the store. CRAIG CONTINUED his patrol and security checks at other businesses in the area. Later, when he returned to the Chevron, he noticed the vehicle driven by Jones and Clark was still at the business. See FAKE ROBBERY, Page 2A No TB Here Yet, But Cases Nearby By Bryan Geter Associate Editor Although tuberculosis cases have been reported in Troup County there are no reported cases in Hogansville, according to health officials. A "lYoup County custodian, whose job requires him to work in different county office build- ings has been diagnosed with tuberculosis. Another case of "presump- tive tuberculosis" was reported in late May at nearby Greenville High School. Some 63 people who work or visit the Troup County buildings were given skin tests last Monday to determine if they might be infected. "We had five people to test positive," said John J. Riggs, com- municable disease coordinator for Health District 4 of LaGrange. "We strongly recommend they have chest :C.rays," he said, "That is the only way they will know for sure." EACH PERSON was also asked if they were suffering from any symptoms of the disease. He said it doesn't mean they have active tuberculosis, but the disease could become active later. The identity of the county worker has not been released. He is now being treated at home after a brief stay in the hospital. DR. MICHAEL BRACKETT, District 4 Health Director, said TB is relatively common in the community. "The risk is extreme- ly low for individuals who were not in close contact," he said. "This disease doesn't repre- sent a threat to society at large,"he added. Of the five who tested posi- tive, none show signs or symp- toms of active TB, Riggs said. He said about 85 percent of the time, TB shows up in the lungs and it can be found in the urinary tract, brain, kidney or lymph nodes. Brackett said treatment for tuberculosis is very effective.
