Local man booked on stalking, harassment charges
Geirrein arrest

A Dawsonville man now faces one felony and three misdemeanors after being arrested last week for allegedly stalking and harassing a victim. 

Anthony Wayne Geirrein, 36, was arrested by the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 12 at 10:30 a.m.

He was charged with one felony count of identity fraud. He received two counts for criminal attempt by harassing and phone calls and one count of criminal attempt by stalking. 

The alleged incidents took place between Jan. 4-6, 2022, according to multiple warrants. 

Geirrein allegedly created a fake profile for his soon-to-be ex-wife on a dating website, using her personal information without her consent to do so. She later got a text in response to the fake profile. 

During a subsequent interview with authorities, Geirrein admitted to creating the profile for harassment purposes. Multiple warrants also state that he allegedly wrote a vulgar message about her on the wall of the men’s bathroom at Racetrac that included her number.

She later also got a text in reference to that. 

The warrant for stalking also alleged that Geirrein drove by the daycare for he and the victim’s son and by the victim’s residence, which is not on the way to his own place. 

He was released on a $9,000 bond later on Jan. 12.
