Reward being offered for information in Thursday home invasion, murder


The Griffin Police Department is now offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the Thursday morning murder of 36-year-old Quentin D. Poole.

Poole sustained multiple gunshot wounds in what authorities are describing as a “likely” home invasion that occurred at approximately 1 a.m. at 815 W. Slaton Avenue.

GPD Chief Mike Yates has said this incident appears to be drug-related.

A second victim was also shot in this incident. The second victim was transported to the emergency room of WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital, where they were treated and released.

Officials say the incident was perpetrated by three or four black males with bandanas over their faces.

Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is encouraged to call Lt. Karen Yancy 678.233.4001 or GPD headquarters 770.229.6450 extension 537.
