SAVANNAH, GA (September 19, 2019) – A collaborative effort between SPD and federal and outside agencies resulted in the successful identification and apprehension of two suspects in a May 2019 homicide.
Around 2:50 a.m. on May 19, officers were called to Interstate-16 at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in reference to an injured person and discovered Dorian Brooks, 33, deceased from gunshot wounds. Throughout the course of the investigation, detectives identified Charles Doles, 25, and Adrian Dove, 48, as suspects in this case.
The Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (SERFTF) was requested to assist in locating and apprehending both suspects. Intelligence was gathered that Dove was located in the New York area. He was taken into custody by the New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force on September 3 in Ithaca, New York.
A partnership between SERFTF and the Gulf Coast Regional Task Force resulted in intelligence on Doles’ location. He was subsequently taken into custody on September 18 by the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia.
Doles has a warrant for murder and Dove faces a charge of party to a crime. Both are awaiting extradition to the Chatham County Detention Center.
“The collaborative work between our detectives, SERFTF and our federal and outside agencies proved to be efficient, effective and successful,” said Roy Minter, SPD Chief of Police. “I am proud of the outstanding work from our detectives and the dedication from the multiple task forces that assisted us with this case. Due to their work, the family of this victim finally has the closure they deserve. ”
