Woman sentenced for role in coin caper

POSTED: October 10, 2013 12:24 a.m.
 

A 36-year-old Atlanta woman was sentenced to five years of probation for her role in a January theft from a Buford Highway gas station.

As part of the negotiated plea, Cassandra Nicole Goodjohn also must pay a $1,355 fine and perform 120 hours of community service for second-degree criminal damage to property.

Goodjohn was arrested in Forsyth County in January after the gas station owner told deputies he had found a man standing next to a minivan "drilling into the air pump machine with a power tool."

The man claimed to be cleaning his van, but the owner noticed damage to the machine and called authorities.

Deputies stopped the van a short time later on Ga. 400 near Bald Ridge Marina Road.

After a bag containing quarters and several tools was found in the minivan, Cedric James Bell and Goodjohn were arrested.

The case for Bell, 49, also of Atlanta, has not reached a conclusion.

In Goodjohn’s negotiated plea before Forsyth County Superior Court Judge David Dickinson, the charges of possession of tools for commission of a crime and theft by taking were dropped. Bell still faces those counts.

Goodjohn will serve her sentence under the First Offender Act. She cannot have any contact with Bell and must testify in his case if requested, according to the conditions of probation.
