At about 4:42 p.m. on Nov. 7 a disabled woman had a friend call 911 after she had been robbed at her home.
Deputies and investigators responded to the Grove Circle residence where they discovered that a "trusted" neighbor who assists the victim had used an object to rob her of cash, a cell phone, and a cordless home phone.
The victim is blind and was unable to idenitfy what object was used during the robbery, only that the offender pushed it against her side during the robbery.
The victim told deputies that she tried to escape but the offender pulled her back into the living room where he searched her purse and stole her items.
After the offender left, the victim used another cordless phone in her house to call a friend who came to her home and called 911.
Late yesterday evening, a Bartow County Sheriff's Office patrol deputy spotted the offender's truck at Cartersville Medical Center and located the offender inside being treated for a suspected drug overdose.
The victim is not injured and staying with other family members.
