Deceased bank robbery suspect was DCSS sub

ALBANY, Ga. -- A woman who was suspected in a string of armed robberies on Friday, including a stickup of the Bank of Pavo, has been identified as Mary Louise Daniels, a longtime substitute teacher for the Dougherty County School System.

Daniels, 54, died Saturday morning after overturning her vehicle in a canal off Ga. Highway 188 while attempting to outrun pursuit by the Coolidge Police Department and Thomas County Sheriff's Office.

She was a suspect in the early afternoon attempted robbery of Carroll's Package Store in Thomasville. The store clerk, foiled the robbery and the would-be bandit fled the scene in Black Toyota Camry with no tag.

Shortly afterward, the Bank of Pavo was held up when a masked woman handed a teller a note and fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

Coolidge police later spotted a vehicle matching the description and gave pursuit, joined later by Thomas sheriff's deputies. Daniels eventually crashed into the canal and the vehicle landed upside down in waist-deep water

Officers physically turned the vehicle upright and extracted Daniels, who was unresponsive. She was transported by EMS to Archbold Memorial Hospital in Thomasville, where she died early Saturday morning.

A source within the Dougherty School System said Daniels had been a substitute at Merry Acres Middle School since 2007, but had not taught classes at the school since February.

An autopsy has been scheduled. Thomas Sheriff's Office spokesman Capt. Steven Jones said Monday his office was awaiting the results.

One more more bad apple removed from the DCSS. I'm not particularly interested in how they leave, just as long as they do. We won big this time, won't have to pay unemployment, nor pay her room and board in the big house. Oh yeah, and no court appointed lawyer.

Maybe she has the actual Xanax prescription!!! Got to be careful taking those Xanax pills and playing Bonnie and Clyde. Oops she forgot to wait on Clyde. Lesson learned don't try to outrun the Po Pro while under the influence of craziness.

LOL, I hope they were checking for hitch-hikers looking for a ride back to Albany, I don't believe she did this spree alone without Clyde..

Unfortunately this women was probably drug dependant, and couldn't support the habit. Whether it was due to illegal drugs, or prescription drugs it is a tragity to someone. Then again she could have a hundred other reasons for the need for funds without earning them. Either way, she paid the price. If she was a Sub, wonder who her contact was, as according to prior posts you have to know someone within the system to get a Sub job.

Oh I'm sure she had contacts downtown in the admin office. Be interesting to know who her contact was?? Maybe they are gone now or retiring g soon??

Who cares if she was a substitute for the Dougherty County School System?! You people have nothing better to talk about. Everyone is one decision away from being a criminal. Let's focus on the what she did and not where she worked. Obviously, she wasn't good at running from the police.

EXACTLY!!!!! Cant wait for the headlines to read "Bank Robbery Suspect Works at Subway" or "Criminal Works at P&G"

You may have a long wait. Most of the criminals here are either on welfare or works for the DCSS.

1

Doc15 2 years, 1 month ago

Or most of the criminals are local politicians, work for private schools, or stay in Northwest Albany.

0

VSU 2 years, 1 month ago

Yeah, Politicians like Postel, Pike, Bishop and people who live (not stay) in South Albany, East Albany, North Albany. Most of the criminals that live (Not stay) in Northwest Albany are your everyday thugs that used to live in South Albany or East Albany.

1

Doc15 2 years, 1 month ago

Politicians like Ealum (who does not stay in Dougherty County), Tommy Coleman (who practically runs the DCSS and works for surrounding counties while working for DCSS).

Sally_O 2 years, 1 month ago

The correct wording is (who does not live in Dougherty County, not, does not stay in Dougherty County). It's easy to see you are a product of the lower half of the DCSS. I pray you are not a real doctor.

Yes Sir, crooked politicians with the Pied Piker leading the pack, and Yes Sir there are criminbals in NW Albany and I wish they would move back to East Albany or South Albany where they came from.

How about at the Marine Base? I wonder why there isn't more news about Mr. Whitman, the supposedly Mr. A. in the most recent white collar crime at the MCLB. Inquiring minds want to know.

They had a story about it the other day. I didn't read it though.

I even checked WALB and didn't find a follow up. I want to know if he was arrested, if he had bail set and if his assets were seized. I also want to know which judge he will go in front of. If it is Sands I guess he can forget about any jail time, low or no bail and he will be smiling and having a good life like all the other white collars that went before him.

Doc and 101... people are more concerned with who works around our students than who makes their sandwiches at Subway. That gives the information greater significance and newsworthiness. The fact that she substituted in the DCSS should not by itself reflect on the system, school substitutes, or people who drive black Camrys.

carter1971 2 years, 1 month ago

OMG....RIP Ms.Daniels. She was my long term substitute at Westover this year in Mrs.Jones class. I can't believe this. I'm totally shocked that she did not practice what she was preaching to us.#SOSAD

It's mighty funny how all the negative DCSS news find it way to, but not to many people know about the 4 teachers in Lee County with rape or molesting charges.

While you are at, Terry, please check out the recently hired AP at Monroe. He was allegedly escorted out of Tift Co. High School and terminated. How did he end up at DCSS?

2

Doc15 2 years, 1 month ago

Hmmm....interesting GG126. It appears that Butch is bringing his people in that were misfits in other school systems. What I see happening is that Butch will bring his people in to fill the vacant positions then he will pack up his bags at the end of the year to head back into retirement. Some kind of "Sheriff."

Better than that piece of crap that was in there before.

gotanyfacts 2 years, 1 month ago

Doc and GG... I'm trying to connect the dots. I can not find the name of the new AP GG refers to. Also, Doc, you refer to Butch's "people". I see no connection to Tift County in Mosley's background. What is his connection to the new AP? GG, how confident are you in the allegation?

0

gotanyfacts 2 years, 1 month ago

Terry, Spookj6 and GG have repeated some allegations but do not appear to want to provide info in the thread. I can not even find anything reporting on the new AP hire GG refers to. Who is it? Do we have commenters who should be recognized as reasonable or merely fire starters?

0

Terry.Lewis 2 years, 1 month ago

The AP at Monroe is former Tift County Principal Ryan Gravitt. He left Tifton under unclear circumstances. There are rumors in regard to his departure. I looked hard and could find no info that confirms those rumors.
If spook has info into his allegations at Lee Co., then I'd love to know the names.
And I think BR's posts speak for themselves.

She is dead. Be careful how much you rejoice. Karma is a monster, and you all have sisters, daughters, and mothers. Of course, if you are without sin, carry on with your glee.

Subs are not entitled to unemployment even if they are fired.

0

chinaberry25 2 years, 1 month ago

Walt, you are so wrong about a sub position. All you have to do is meet the requirements, pass a background check and they will open loving arms to you. They are desperate for subs. You must be thinking of Lee Co. I have heard that is true for them.

0

gotanyfacts 2 years, 1 month ago

Getting a good corps of subs is pretty much impossible everywhere. After thirty pus years as a teacher, the mere thought of doing sub work gives me cold sweats. Going into different classrooms where different teachers have set different patterns and expectations is a real challenge. Very few have the qualities to handle such a chore. I admire those who did and sympathize with those who, in spite of their best efforts, just hung in there. Then there were those that had no clue but did have a pulse. Bless their little hearts.

Substitute teachers get paid $7.31 in Dougherty County, it goes up to $9.56 for long term (more than 3 weeks). Minimum wage is $7.25.

It is a sucky job.

1

Disgusted2 2 years, 1 month ago

It's so sad because she was my classmate and a VET. I am not sure what made her do this but, when you serve your country and the only job you can get is a sub job says a lot. I really didn't see this type of behavior in her.

Thanks, Terry, and The Albany Herald for following up on this story and giving us the human side of the woman with the innocent name - Mary Daniels - who came to such a tragic end. It's very sad and my sympathy goes out to the friends, relatives and former students who knew her.
