My Local Police Report


August 9, 2006, 06:21 PM
After a little over a month in existance for our new police department I got the scoop today from the cops on the crime in our area. One of the Lt's is putting out an "unnofficial" newsletter. It's always good to have friends (or aquaintances) with badges :cool:

August 8, 2006


This week

Well this week’s report will be a bit longer. Due to some slight problems I was unable to get the Friday Edition out there so we’ll double-up today.


6631 Roswell Road 30328

An employee of the vacuum cleaning business said that around 3:15 p.m. a man came in and began asking questions about some of the store items. He then pulled out a gun, pushed the victim behind the counter and took money from the register and then fled.

The suspect is a black male, 5-8” 230 lbs, wearing a black t-shirt, jean shorts, and a black ball cap. No age was given on the suspect.

8445 Roswell Road (Wendy’s) 30350

At around 5 a.m. the manager of the Wendy’s arrived to open up. When he got out of his car, he was assaulted by a man, race unknown. The man forced the manager into the store and office area. He demanded the victim open the safe. The suspect took an undetermined amount of money. The victim said the suspect slammed his head into the desk however he had no signs of physical injury. The man told the officers his car was also stolen by the suspect. The report noted the fact that the camera system was not working at the time of the robbery.

9401 Roberts Drive 30350

(Here’s another good one)

The victim said that he allowed a woman to move in with him because she said she needed a place to live. She told the man (Here is what we call a clue that things could really be not good) that she used to run scams on guys to get their money and credit cards. (Sirens and flares should now be alerting this victim that nothing good will soon happen.) He reassured himself that this was a part of her past and she had reformed. (More and bigger flares and sirens)

He woke the next day and his wallet was gone. The wallet had $213 cash, credit cards, SSN information and his ID.

5667 Peachtree Dunwoody Road 30342

This is a good one. A victim reported that her Suntrust bank card has been used to withdraw money on a number of occasions. She found out that a co-worker would steal her card while the victim was in the bathroom. She would use the card and then at some point return it. She did this several times to the tune of over $3000. Once the victim found out about the charges, she worked with the bank and of course the co-worker’s photo has shown up a few times, withdrawing money on the victim’s account number. The arrest is pending. Folks, anything having to do with banks is photographed. This is pointed out in our new book “Fraud for Dummies.”

7100 block of Glenridge Drive 30328

A representative of a charity organization reported that someone obtained the organization’s bank account number and had checks made on that account and then wrote several checks on it. Several of the checks were written to department store but one was written to an insurance company which will be the last nail in the coffin for the suspects. The first nail was their names and addresses on the fraudulent checks they made. (Duh) More arrests are pending. (Also Fraud for Dummies)

How fast would you put this guy in jail and why loan the car to someone whom you know has issues with you??????

A 38-year old man was arrested after officers had to return to a noise complaint just after midnight. They previously told the man to leave but he did not. When they returned, he called them a (^#&#$%) and a (%#&^#%#) so he also went to jail.

Fenwick Place 30350

Officers received a call of loud people in the parking lot in front of an apartment. The men were drinking but good-natured so the officers asked them if they would go inside. They did. Around 1:45 a.m. the officers got another call. One of the good-natured guys was now mad at his girlfriend so he punched seven holes in the drywall with his fist and becoming disorderly, probably saying things like “Boy my fist really hurts now.” Actually he didn’t say that until the next day but the other once good-natured guys couldn’t calm him down so he was arrested.

Roswell Road and I-285 30342

A 49-year old man was arrested after an officer saw him standing near a building. The man seemed out of place so the officer talked with him for a few minutes.

During the interview with the man, the officer learned the man had a Beretta .32 caliber gun under some paper in the front of the truck. Lying next to the gun was a crack pipe. On page 23 of “Guns and Drugs for Dummies” its recommended that you hide the gun in a separate place from the crack pipe.

Just after midnight, an officer made a traffic-stop on a car for an obscured tag.

The driver was later arrested for a concealed weapon, a Ruger .45 auto with a laser sight on it. The man told the officer it was his girlfriend’s gun, which, in street-talk means “It’s easier to find a new girlfriend than it is to get out of jail.” He was arrested and at some point when she wants to see the police report, he will also be out.

5501 Glenridge Drive 30342

A 38-year old man was arrested for Simple Battery (domestic) after police were called to a disturbance.

On July 28th sixteen cars were involuntary cemented when a cement truck accidentally started spilling cement while traveling on I-285 East near Northside Drive. The company is working to repair the damages to the cars.

Other Stuff

The Dollar Store employee at 8610 Roswell Road reported that two black males came in and paid for merchandise with two one-hundred dollar bills. When the employee went to the bank, they told him the money was counterfeit. The bills were turned over to the Secret Service.

What did we learn?

It was a bad week if you were drinking Colt 45

Be selective as to whom you let stay at your home and if they talk about their criminal past, take the hint.

Don’t tailgate cement trucks

Think about the consequences before you blame your girlfriend for anything.

Lock you cars, even inside the garage.

Lock your doors everywhere.

True love doesn’t mean it won’t end in theft.

Crack pipes and guns aren’t easily hid.

There were a few more things but this report is long enough! I’ll get to the other stuff later.

Some good stuff in there.

The chances of them getting back together are slim.

She knew the woman because they had just left their mental health meeting.

She was drunk and mean and saying a lot of really bad stuff so she had to go to jail.

and my favorite:

“Boy my fist really hurts now.”


August 9, 2006, 07:23 PM
Stay off Roswell road, lot going down there.:eek:

We have some streets like that in parts of Dallas, places where its never a good idea to fully stop at stop signs. God forbid if you find yourself there at night.

August 9, 2006, 07:32 PM
“Boy my fist really hurts now.”
Sounds like my uncle

He now has no license and never will because he got his third DUI

How did this third dui happen?

A week after getting his license back from DUI #2 he was at a club and in a state he often is. There was a fight in the parking lot (not involving him) and he was annoying one of the officers who told him to leave. Can we see where this is going? Yes he got into the car and drove off after staggering to his car right infront of the officer.

No, most of my family isn't that smart.

August 9, 2006, 11:09 PM
And all this is gun-related .... how, again?

August 9, 2006, 11:20 PM
Sounds like Sandy Springs.

Yeah, they are all nice and humorous about it now.. give it another 6 months and they'll revert right back to the way Fulton conducted business.

They have to find a way to fund the best paid police force in GA.. and I can assure you, they're not going to get that money from harassing people drinking malt liquor at bus stops... they'll do it the same way Fulton did... harassing everyone and their brother for whatever they can dream up...

Let's not forget the incident on Roswell road where an arresting officer let loose a shotgun load full of pellets on two individuals inside of a car... because they opened their window after he "knocked" on it with his shotgun. How did that turn out, anyway?

An employee of the vacuum cleaning business said that around 3:15 p.m. a man came in and began asking questions about some of the store items. He then pulled out a gun, pushed the victim behind the counter and took money from the register and then fled.
see theres guns

And all this is gun-related .... how, again?

I'll admit it's only mildly gun related but I don't think this post would win the award for the least gun related of all time.

August 10, 2006, 11:28 AM
What are SS's bounds? My sister lives in the 30328 zip code.

Why did SS incorporate?

August 10, 2006, 11:49 AM
Is it just me or does the Wendy's manager getting robbed sound a tad fishy?

August 10, 2006, 12:33 PM
And all this is gun-related .... how, again?

Situational awareness. Since most of us here have firearms for protection, crime info is always useful.

For those that believe most of us here are just paranoid, read the police reports. Welcome to the real world.

August 10, 2006, 12:45 PM
Great read, but better for APS.

August 10, 2006, 01:35 PM
Why did SS incorporate?

They wanted to keep their tax money in their neighborhood.

Of course the cries from the "urban" areas of south Fulton were "RACISM!"
