Still on the phone, Chief Freer asked what was going. Officer Veech replied, Chief, there're a lot of people down here. You know, talking and taking pictures. Chief Freer said they found out the very large, and very heavy, (maybe 4' tall by 4' wide at the base) toy had been taken from the kiddies play area at Hickory Point Mall. He called the Forsyth Police Department to report the incident. During that conversation, Chief Freer explained that the Koala bear and cub was now at the police station.

President Clinton, who was elected in 1996, was the last president to receive life- long protection from the Secret Service. Tired of Low CD Rates?
