Lee deputies arrest suspicious persons

LEESBURG -- After apprehending a suspicious duo in one neighborhood, Lee County sheriff's deputies handled a violent woman the next morning in another neighborhood, reports stated.

A resident reported two men prowling through the Hickory Grove neighborhood off U.S. Highway 82 just north of Albany about 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Sheriff Reggie Rachals pulled out the stops when he heard that the men fled from a deputy responding to the call in the neighborhood on the 200 block of Willow Lake Drive. The area had seen a rash of entering auto or vehicle burglaries reported recently.

The search for the suspicious men included deputies, a Georgia State Patrol helicopter and two bloodhounds.

"Yorel Danon Jenkins, 17, was arrested Wednesday evening," said Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Lewis Harris. "He is charged with four counts of criminal trespass and four counts of disorderly conduct."

Jenkins was incarcerated in Lee County jail. No information on bail was immediately available.

According to reports, Jenkins' 15-year-old brother was also involved. He was placed into custody at about 3 p.m. Wednesday. Because of his age no other information was released.

The early hours Thursday led to another search in Lee County, a sheriff's office report stated.

According to the report, a deputy spotted two people running across the road and between houses on the 100 block of Pine Manor Drive at 2:15 a.m.

After the deputy spotted the pair lying in the grass on an open lot, he shined a spotlight on them and they ran. A few minutes later, another deputy found Ashley McDonald, 24, on a dirt drive at the end of First Road.

McDonald said she had been drinking, officials reported. She became aggressive, reports state, and told the deputy, "I don't care, just take me to jail."

When placed in the back of a patrol car and taken to her home at 134 Helen St., "Ashley (McDonald) kicked through the (car's side) window causing the window to bust," the report stated.

The breaking glass resulted in a minor injury to the deputy's hand. McDonald sustained no injuries.

McDonald was charged with loitering, prowling, criminal interference with government property and obstruction of law enforcement officers.

She was taken to the Lee County Jail.

No information on bail was available from the jail's staff.
