DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - The Dougherty DA urges storm victims to take common sense steps to make sure they're dealing with legitimate businesses and contractors.
"A full court press is going to be made against everybody that is involved with this type of crime during this period," said Edwards. "And like I said, this period includes that point where the chairman declared us a disaster area. Every case that involves this type of conduct is going to be given a full court press. Everything that can be done to punish these persons is going to be done."
Other storm related crimes can include, but aren't limited to, burglary, theft, and criminal trespassing.
