Local law enforcement in connection with the U.S. Marshals are looking for two men, both accused of sexual crimes against a child and believed to be in the area.
Donald Mac Brown, 36 and David Wesley Crawford, 57 are wanted in Conyers for sexual exploitation of children and in Newton County for child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and solicitation of sodomy.
The victim, a 5-year-old child out of Newton County, was known to these suspects.
According to a BOLO ("be on the look out") released by the Newton County Sheriff's Office, "both [are] aware that they are wanted and Brown has stated he will not go back to jail."
Conyers police had assisted the U.S. Marshals last week with a search of Brown's residence on Robin Road, according to CPD Lt. Jack Dunn. During the search investigators found a text message on Brown's phone sent to a woman offering money for sex.
The search also uncovered pornographic images on the phone of the 5-year-old child.
Dunn said the pictures were consistent with the types of images found with other prosecuted child molesters. "It was not a suitable picture of a 5-year-old. It is obvious it was taken for sexual gratification."
Brown was booked into Rockdale County jail on Nov. 28 on charges of misdemeanor soliciation of sodomy and released three days later.
Crawford and Brown are both suspected to be armed with firearms and knives and the family believes they may be hiding in the wooded areas of Newton County.
Brown is a white male, approximately 6-feet-tall and 245 lbs. with blue eyes and brown hair.
Crawford is a white male, approximately 5-feet-5-inches tall and 135 lbs. with blue eyes and gray hair on the sides and bald on top.
They are believed to be traveling in a 1999 white Ford F-150 with Georgia tag BZX9023.
