A Troup County father was indicted by a grand jury earlier this month for inappropriately touching two of his daughters.

The man was charges with two counts of incest, three counts of aggravated child molestation and three counts of child molestation.

According to the indictment, the man allegedly had sexual relations with one of his daughters from December, 2000 through May, 2004.

The father also allegedly inappropriately touched a second daughter between May 2014 and May 2015, the document stated.

The man was arrested in March and was recently denied bond by a Troup County Superior Court judge.

The Daily News chose to not reveal the identity of the man to protect his children.

Quintavious Lantwane Gray, 21, was also indicted in April for his role in an entering auto and theft ring around Troup County.

Gray was indicted on 26 counts: seven counts of theft by taking, seven counts of theft by receiving stolen property and 12 counts of unlawfully entering an automobile.

The document stated between July and December of 2016, Gray reportedly took or received at least nine guns that he knew were stolen.

The weapons ranged from a .40 caliber handgun Smith & Wesson to a .308 Bushmaster customer rifle to a Taurus Judge revolver and a 9 mm hand gun, just to name a few.

Gray allegedly stole some of the firearms after breaking into vehicles, the indictment stated.

Investigators with the Troup County Sheriff’s Office, LaGrange Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office found Gray’s cache when they served a search warrant on his home on North Kight Drive in Dec. 2016.

The home was filled with piles of semi-automatic weapons, smaller guns, knives, laptops, cellphones, televisions, purses, ammunition, hunting gear, cross bow, lawn equipment, backpacks, social security cards, driver’s licenses and even a recently purchased baby doll, TCSO Chief Investigator Capt. Mike Caldwell told the Daily News in December.

Gray allegedly confessed to TCSO investigators about his role in the crime spree.

“He did confess to being the mastermind (of crimes),” the chief investigator said. “He confessed to committing more than 1,000 entering autos … in the past five to six months.”

Gray also reportedly hit vehicles and homes within the cities of LaGrange, Newnan and Senoia, according to Caldwell.

TCSO estimated the agency seized around $75,000 worth of items from Gray’s home.

Tecory Daniels, 27, Dorothy Lawrence, 43 and Tyrone Gray, 23, all of LaGrange, were also arrested for their part in the crime spree.
