On Friday, at 2 p.m., Chief Thomas N. Culpepper of the Cartersville Police Department announced the arrest of Darnell Robinson, 37, of Cartersville, in connection with an entering auto incident. Culpepper stated that at approximately 7:40 a.m. police reported to North Erwin Street at Main Street, in reference to a larceny report.

The victim stated that she left her car unlocked while getting equipment from her business. When she came out of the building, she noticed the suspect getting out of her car, with her wallet in his hand. When she approached the suspect and demanded her wallet back, he pushed her and left, running north down Main Street.

A description of the male was given out by 911. As another officer was responding to the scene, the officer noticed a male subject matching the suspect’s description standing behind one of the apartments at the Heritage Apartment Complex. Another officer arrived at the apartments and moments later Robinson was taken into custody.

As a result of the arrest, investigators believe Robinson may be involved in other similar incidents in the city. The investigation is ongoing. Robinson is currently being held at the Bartow County Jail.

Man flees deputy, deputy attacked

According to a Bartow County Sheriff’s Office incident report, on Thursday at 4:30 p.m., a deputy was dispatched to 1400 Joe Frank Harris Parkway to assist a Cartersville Police Department officer with a possibly physical domestic altercation.

Upon arrival, the deputy was advised by the officer that the suspect, Micah Kalin Mein, had allegedly fled the scene on foot just as he had arrived. The two saw Mein run into the wood line behind Advanced Auto Parts. The deputy approached the wood line and demanded he come out with his hands up.

After no response, the deputy entered the wood line. Suddenly Mein aggressively lunged at the deputy, according to the incident report. The deputy then shot Mein with his Taser.

Mein was arrested and charged with obstruction of an officer, driving with suspended or revoked driver’s license, failure to drive within single lane and obstruction of an officer.
