Pickens Sheriff Book-In Photo
Gaylon Earl Mathews
Late Tuesday, Feb. 4, Jasper resident Gaylon Earl Mathews, 57, was arrested on two counts of aggravated child molestation and one count of child molestation.
The Pickens Sheriff’s Office performed the initial arrest, but has turned over the case to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation because Mathews was a certified Peace Officer. Mathews had not been employed with any law enforcement agency in Pickens County in well over a decade.
Mathews, a photographer, was known locally for creating the popular Facebook page “Photos of Pickens County Georgia” where people shared photos relevant to Pickens and its history.
