Middlebrooke Arrests

Canton, Cherokee County, Ga. February 8, 2011 - Investigators with the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office Gang Unit arrested 3 suspects Monday in connection with the January 9th spray painting of racial slurs on a home in the Hickory Flat Community. All three suspects were juveniles and live near, but not in, the subdivision in which the paintings occurred. They were released back to their parents after being charged with Terroristic Threats and Criminal Trespass.

“Although this incident is troubling, it appears to be a juvenile act and the suspects are not believed to be part of an organized group targeting minorities.”
