Rashaad Doe

A traffic stop led to the arrest of two men, one of whom is wanted in a Long County kidnapping, according to a release from the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office.
At around 4:15 p.m. Friday afternoon, Senior Deputy Jeff White stopped a 2006 Chevrolet Impala on U.S. 301 South near Old King Road for a traffic violation.
The driver of the vehicle, Troy Tigner, 27, of Church Street in Glennville, was arrested for driving without a valid license. Deputy Mac Edwards, who recently joined the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, recognized Tigner’s name, presumably by radio traffic, and stopped to aid White with the arrest
A passenger in the auto was questioned and Edwards also recognized him after the suspect had given a false name to deputies. Edwards was also aware that the man, Rashaad Doe, 26, of Mincey Loop in Glennville, was wanted by the Long County Sheriff’s Office for a kidnapping that had occurred in that jurisdiction.
Both men were arrested and transported to the Bulloch County Jail. Doe was later released to Long County deputies.
