Cameron Jamal Callaway was reportedly driving a white van used to sell ice cream in the area of Hunting Creek Lane in Conyers. He reportedly passed a house in the area, turned around and went back to grab a package out of the mailbox, according to a Conyers Police Department incident report.

CPD officers stopped Callaway and asked about the package. According to the report, he admitted that he “might have taken something.”

Callaway informed the officer his license might be suspended as well.

CPD officers searched the van and located a black book bag containing suspected marijuana, a small scale and money. A 9mm handgun was located in the center console of the vehicle and a package with the victim’s name and address was located behind the driver’s seat.

According to the victim, the package contained a “purple 18-20-inch hair wig that cost $15.15.”

Callaway was charged with theft by taking, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and violation of the Georgia Controlled Substance Act. Callaway was also arrested on a warrant out of the city of Atlanta for failure to appear. 

According to pictures provided by CPD, the van was marked with stickers labeling it an ice cream truck and providing caution to passing drivers about children crossing.
