Pizza escapade in Cobb lands Spalding work detail escapee back in jail

A fugitive who walked away from a Spalding County work detail a week ago is back behind bars. His taste of freedom ended after he tried to elude authorities by stealing a pizza delivery man's car in Cobb County.

Last Tuesday, inmate Roly Gabriel Faubion walked away from the Spalding County work detail, according to police. Faubion was serving a prison sentence for, among other things, drug violations, theft by receiving stolen property, false imprisonment and terroristic threats.

After Spalding County authorities called off their manhunt for Faubion, U.S. Marshals got involved and learned that a woman had helped Faubion escape and had driven him to a motel in North Carolina, according to Sheriff Wendell Beam.

Authorities would not identify the woman, but said that she would probably be arrested and charged in the incident.

By the time marshals showed up at the hotel in North Carolina, Faubion had made his way back to Georgia, to a home in Cobb County, according to police.

He was captured after he called and ordered a pizza and directed the delivery man to a specific address, police said. He waited on a corner for the delivery guy and flagged him down. When the pizza man stopped, Faubion carjacked him.

He didn't get far, according to police. Marshals, who had intercepted Faubion's pizza delivery phone call, immediately pulled him over and arrested him, according to Spaulding County police spokesman Tony Ranieri.

Faubion faces charges in Cobb and Spalding counties and will be held at the Jackson Diagnostic Center to finish out his sentence.
