Mayor of Baconton turns in granddaughter

ALBANY -- The granddaughter of Baconton's mayor has been arrested in connection with a purse snatching last week, officials with the Dougherty County Police Department say.

Narkia Morman, of Baconton, was arrested Monday morning in connection with a purse snatching at Stop and Shop last week on Sylvester Road. County police had been requesting tips from the community to make an arrest in the crime. Tips from Crime Stoppers assisted law enforcement in identifying the culprit, said DCPD Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick.

The suspect was arrested when her grandmother and Baconton mayor, Annette Morman, turned her in at the Dougherty County Jail, Kirkpatrick said.

Annette Morman was elected as Baconton's first female mayor last year after serving 16 years as a commissioner and 15 months as acting mayor. Among her recent actions as mayor was the establishment of a new senior citizens program, a promise she had made during her campaign.

How wonderful....a decent and honest public official...I say you folks in Baconton are quite fortunate to have a woman like this as your Mayor. If you are smart you will keep her for a very long time. People like her are very hard to find....AN HONEST POLITICIAN....remember the last time you ever heard of one? Now that you have her...do NOT let her get away. Thank you Mayor Morman, for setting a fine example of what decency means.

Thank you for being a great example. Your granddaughter will hopefully learn from this lesson, and benefit for a lifetime.

Thanks, Gramma for doing the 'right thing'. I do have some questions: where are her mother and father? How did purse snatching land on the granddaughter's list of thing to do today?

That is my question to a lot of folks: how does this behavior become something that is OK for you to do? Why do you think it is a good move? How does these things become options?
