Two employees charged after scuffle at General Mills warehouse

CONYERS — Two employees at the General Mills warehouse in Social Circle were arrested this week after they got into a fight at work.

Officers with the Social Circle Police Department were called out to an office in the warehouse located at 1871 Willow Springs Church Road around 10:10 a.m. Tuesday. By the time the officer arrived, the altercation had ended, said Police Chief Terry Sosebee.

“In talking with the parties involved and the witnesses there, apparently the two men exchanged words and then it escalated, and one person struck the other,” he said. “It appears it was over as quickly as it got started.”

Police arrested 35-year-old Mark Hargrove of 1766 Salem Woods Drive in Conyers, and charged him with disorderly conduct. Prentice Stokeling, 29, of 412 Collette Lane in Social Circle, was arrested and charged with simple battery.

In other news, the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office is looking into allegations by Snapping Shoals EMC that one of its customers has been tampering with their equipment to restore power to her home and stealing electricity.

According to the incident report, a Snapping Shoals employee said he went to a home on Granite Drive on April 2 to disconnect service for nonpayment. A few days later, he told deputies power was somehow turned back on so he returned to the home for tampering and cut off the service again.

“(He) stated that the service was tampered with again on (Monday) and the power is gong to be turned off from the transformer,” the incident report states.
