Tax Depreciation Specialists, Blindfolded, kidnapped, forced to drink a knockout potion and raped, a 21-year-old Decatur man told police Monday of the circumstances that led him to wake up in Mississippi. The man reported someone blindfolded him about midnight March 1 while he pumped gasoline at the U.S. 31 South Everyday Conoco. While they forced him inside his vehicle and bound him, police said the victim heard two males talking.
Police said the two drove for about one hour, then made him drink an unknown substance that caused him to fall asleep for a week. Police said he told them that he awoke Monday in Brandon, Miss., and had pain in his anal area. A police spokesman said he is unaware of a single-dose drug that can put someone to sleep for a week. Lawrence County Commissioners were united in voting to end supplements to their three administrative staff. But they were divided in their support of a legislative act that would end the practice of elected officials being allowed to pass out discretionary cash to those who work for them.
The administrative staff supplements cost more than $31,000 last year. The second supplements, which the elected officials gave to 10 employees, cost $37,244 last year. Commissioner Randall Lou-Allen made both motions at a Monday meeting. They were his attempt to end what he said is disparity in the county’s pay system. LouAllen wants a system where everyone receives a sal-ary listed in the pay plan.
