On Monday, December 9 at approximately 12 p.m., Bainbridge Public Safety investigators, Larry Funderburke, Chris Jordan and Mark Esquivel were contacted by the Thomasville Police Department in reference to a suspect.

TPD and the U.S. Marshals Service told the investigators they believed Jeremiah Lamons, a suspect in a Friday Thomasville shooting, was hiding in Bainbridge and needed assistance locating him.

Investigators worked off information provided by both agencies and late Monday afternoon located Lamons at a residence in Bainbridge.
