Thinking (perhaps) that a carrying case contained a computer, a thief who broke into a automobile in the Dacula area got a whole lot more.The case contained around $200,000 in spinal implants. The thief also grabbed $750 in cash.
Police state revenge was the motive of aJohns Creek man who was arrested for trying to explode a homemade bomb at a business that had fired himthe previous day. The thing is, the bomb never detonated. The man worked for a vendor that washed and moved vehicles at a south Forsyth County auto dealership. Police believe he threw the device at a automobile early one morning, anticipating it to explode on impact. It didn’t. Police used surveillance video to catch him.
Watkinsville police were looking to complete the story of the missing leg.A child’s prosthetic leg adorned with stickers of planets was found alongside a road by joggers. Was it thrown out by an unruly child? Left and forgotten on the hood, then fell off later? Was it in a stolen automobile and tossed away to remove evidence? Police just wanted to find out whose it is and return it.
A classic case of insult-to-injury: A man paying a traffic fine at the Snellville Municipal Court earlier this month had his automobile stolen from the parking lot. After he signed in around 8:15 a.m., he apparently left his keys at the front desk. You can guess what happened next. He returned to find his automobile gone.
There are better — and more lawful — ways to show sports fandom than what a automobile thief did recently in Lilburn. Sometime after midnight, a thief stole a 1998 Plymouth Voyager from a driveway. Now, a Voyager may not be on the list of the top 10 most stolen cars, but at least this one had a Georgia Bulldogs logo on the hood and a Falcons logo on the rear window.
A Dacula insurance office was burglarized for the second time in a month, but the crime wasn’t noticed right away. The suspect removed a window air conditioning unit to get in, then replaced it after leaving.
Just one minute, officer. I need to finish my beer. A man stated he knew he was going to be arrested when a Winder police officer answered a call of a suspected panhandler at a local gas station. So he ran and hid behind a van. When the officer approached, the man chugged down a massive beer. He told police he wanted to finish it before being arrested.
Watch out for that … woodpile. A woman trying to run away from Winder police recently didn’t get very far. Officers responded to a residence on a report of a verbal dispute between two women. One of the women ran away, but tripped over a woodpile next to the house. She was eventually charged with public intoxication and obstruction.
Sometimes, you just gotta shake your head, right? In a traffic stop earlier this month, Johns Creek Police stopped a teenage driver and found her with rolling papers in her lap, a small amount of pot and various bottles of liquor. The reason for the stop? She was driving with no headlights on at night and in the rain.
