ALBANY, Ga. -- After police arrested Sederrick Culbreth on robbery charges Monday in Dougherty County, police in Fitzgerald charged him with 13 counts of forgery thanks to a sharp-eyed Dougherty County Police detective, stated law enforcement officials.
Police in both areas remain on the lookout for Culbreth's sister, Nicolle Kimberly Culbreth, and his girlfriend, Shameka Nakia Davis, stemming from the crimes, said Fitzgerald police Detective Chad Bishop.
"I had surveillance footage of a man and a woman passing counterfeit $50 bills at businesses," Bishop said. "A Dougherty detective saw the footage and called us. We took out warrants on him."
DCP Detective Tamiko Whitlock called Fitzgerald police, said Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick. The woman passing bogus bills on the tape is Culbreth's sister, he added.
Police want Culbreth's girlfriend because police say she drove the gray 2012 Dodge Charger that escaped from a police stop Monday carrying a small child as Culbreth jumped out, tried to run away and was caught.
"Reckless conduct due to her reckless driving is a charge waiting for her," Kirkpatrick said.
Appearing in Albany Crime Stoppers Most Wanted reports, Culbreth was wanted for allegedly selling marijuana to 22-year-old Jacolvie Jarrod Curry on June 12 behind the Pitt Stop on Sylvester Road.
According to reports the June 12 incident, Culbreth pulled a gun on Curry, the men struggled and third unidentified man became involved. Culbreth was shot with his own gun during the struggle, police said. The three men ran away.
Culbreth went to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for treatment. There were warrants for him upon his release, but, unlike Monday, Culbreth managed to evade capture.
According to the Dougherty County Jail automated phone system, he faces charges of armed robbery, two counts possession of a firearm by a felon, aggravated assault, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and other charges.
In Fitzgerald, 13 counts of forgery await Culbreth, said Bishop. Culbreth's sister is also wanted for forgery, officers said. The Secret Service is looking into the case and could file federal charges.
