Warner Robins man charged with theft of money for animal rescue groups

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is asking people who’ve given donations to a man named John Murphy ‘Jimmy’ Owens III for animal rescue groups to come forward.

There is an active investigation against Owens, who is currently in the Bibb County Jail on charges of theft by conversion, after he allegedly accepted donations to rescue dogs and did not give the money to licensed rescue groups.

If you’ve given money to Owens, please contact Investigator Jean Lebeuf at 478-803-2560 or email him at jlebeuf@maconbibb.us

More charges are expected in Dublin and Gray.
