ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A man featured on WALB News Ten's Most Wanted was arrested by Albany Police Friday December fifth, but then took his own life in the Dougherty County Jail just two days later.
Albany Police say they arrested Ronald Foster Friday afternoon after finding him homeless in the 1200 block of Gillespie. He was wanted for battery, theft by taking, robbery by intimidation, and a probation violation.
Foster was housed in the Dougherty County Jail's general population and had a roommate. While that roommate was visiting with family, Foster hung himself with a bed sheet. When the guard and roommate returned they found Foster and performed CPR. Jail Administrators say all of their guards are trained to recognize inmates with suicidal tendencies.
"Everyone who's employed here goes through a class and gets basic training how to recognize that stuff depression that kind of thing and there was no indication on this gentleman and it's very unfortunate it happened at all," said Captain Keith Kiger, Dougherty County Sheriff's office PIO.
In 2005 Foster led police on a four hour manhunt after stealing a tank of gas and a car. Just last month jailers found 56-year-old Lester Goodman hanging in his cell. He was being held on theft by conversion charges.
