According to Phyllis Banks, spokeswoman for the the Albany Police Department, the man, whose picture was posted in local media, presented himself at the Law Enforcement Center around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, saying he had no knowledge the phone had been stolen.

“After interviewing (the man) investigators felt he was telling the truth and he was not charged,” Banks said.

However, the former suspect’s girlfriend, Miesha Jones, and Jones’ mother, Jennifer Reddick, 38, each were charged with theft by receiving. The two women were taken to the Dougherty County Jail, Banks said.

In addition, police officials say Richard Molden, described as a “person of interest,” in the case is also being sought.

According to the APD, the phone had been inside a purse which had been taken from a car at Westwind Apartments on Dawson Road March 31.

The person whose face appeared in the photos was not aware the phone was stolen, police said. The photos were automatically posted on the victim’s Facebook page, officials said.

It was a good story with a good ending for him. Not so good for his former friends.
