      Douglas officials need help solving arsons

      The small town of Douglas has been shaken up this past week and police are still investigating several arsons.

      Mayor James Dennis held a press conference Friday afternoon letting Douglas residents know just how important they are when solving crimes.

      There were four arsons total in the first week of July including one at 618 North Madison Avenue.

      "Be assured that the city of Douglas is doing everything we can, using all of the resources we have available to keep them safe in their home," Mayor Dennis said. "But it takes some effort on their part as well to help us with that. We can't be in everybody's place, in everybody's home, in everybody's yard, and everybody's business."

      If you have information that leads to an arrest, the Georgia Arson Control Board is offering up to a $10,000 reward per incident. The number to call to report any information is (800) 282-5804.

      Also, if you see any crime or suspicious activity, you're asked to call the city's "See Something, Say Something" tip line at (229) 260-3600.
