Police were called to a Powers Ferry Road drug store and met an employee who said that a man, whom she estimated weighed 400 pounds, took some baby formula and then attempted to leave without paying for it.
The complainant said that she jumped onto his back and rode him out the door, but he eventually shook her off.
Fortunately, several rodeo clowns happened to be in the parking lot and managed to distract the suspect until the woman could get up and run back inside. The suspect dropped the formula and got into a black BMW that was driven by another person and left the area.
Still sore about pounding
A man called police about his visit to a friend on Birmingham Highway.
He said he was in the kitchen when his lady-friend walked up and hit him in the face. Her guy-friend came in and put the victim in a headlock.
The victim said he lost consciousness for a moment and when he came out of it the two were kicking him.
The man reported that the assault occurred two days prior, but he didn’t have time to call until now. (We’ll get right on it.)
With guests like this …
Officers received a call of a hotel guest who had trashed the Peachtree Dunwoody Road hotel room.
The officers spoke to the guest, who let them in. Why he did I don’t know, because there was crack cocaine on the floor, smoking materials such as glass tubing and butane lighters on the counters and $2,847 in cash. The man who rented the room said all the items were his.
An NCIC computer check showed the suspect was wanted in Fayetteville for traffic violations. He was taken to jail and charged with possession of cocaine and impersonating Led Zeppelin back in the old days.
Charges were blowin’ in the wind
A guy walked into a State Bridge Road home improvement store and took one grass trimmer and two leaf blowers and put them in a shopping cart.
He pushed the cart past the checkout line and out of the door. The anti-theft devices activated and the store security persons detained him and called the police.
He was arrested and taken to jail.
What part of that seemed to be a good idea? At least other shoplifters make an attempt to conceal the items. Remember the guy who put the saw blades down his pants and then RAN out the door? Now there’s a shoplifter!
