According to Sheriff Darrell Dix, deputies from the Fugitive Apprehension, Special Operations and C.A.G.E. units recently responded to a report of a large crowd in the 1600 block on North Hill St. Dix said upon their arrival, they identified Donnie Dunbar, a man the SCSO describes as a known gang member, as he was allegedly entering an automobile.

A computer check revealed that Dunbar had outstanding warrants from Cobb and Spalding counties. Authorities say he initially gave deputies a false name, but was positively identified as Donnie Dunbar.

Dunbar was arrested and charged with felony violation of probation out of Cobb County, and Spalding County charges including child support contempt, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, criminal street gang activity, false name, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and open container.

Dunbar is being housed at the Spalding County Detention facility and is awaiting a bond hearing.
