The Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department received a complaint from a resident who says that his adult son has stolen several items from the complainant’s residence.  The complainant also told a responding deputy that his son had stolen some checks in the past.
 
On Tuesday of this week, the complainant said that his son, twenty-one-year-old Kevin Mark Godfrey, came to his house and stole some shirts along with a jar of change.  Witnesses told a responding deputy that Godfrey had also stolen some gas from a gas can on the porch of the complainant’s residence.
 
The witnesses, who were family members at the residence, told the responding deputy that Godfrey came inside the residence and took the items after being asked not to take anything.
 
Godfrey’s father told the deputy that his son had stolen two checks in the past and had forged the checks and cashed them.  The complainant was able to provide copies of the fraudulent checks to the deputy.
 
The complainant said that he wanted to press charges against his son for theft and forgery.
 
The incident is still under investigation by the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office.
Trion Police Chief David Gilleland told WZQZ News that the death is still under investigation, but for now, the incident is being treated as a fatal four-wheeler accident.
