BURGLARY RASH: Several residents living on Tyson Circle and nearby streets allegedly found themselves to be the victims of an unknown suspect or suspects entering their homes and vehicles. In some cases, the attempted burglar did not steal anything but just rummaged around. Others reported money and electronics to have been stolen. In most cases, the suspect entered the homes or cars through an unlocked entry point.
CLEANED OUT: A Milton couple was in the process of selling their home and had their carpets professionally cleaned, including the carpet in the master bedroom. The next day, they noticed three pieces of jewelry —an amethyst necklace, a pearl necklace and a gold ring — were missing from the wife’s jewelry box. The estimated value of the items is $3,990.
AFTER-BAR FIGHT: Milton police were dispatched to a home on Hopewell Road on Sept. 6 in reference to a domestic dispute. A woman called police claiming that her boyfriend began arguing with her after they left the bar and threw her to the ground multiple times. The boyfriend told police his girlfriend was acting inappropriately at the bar and became argumentative when he took her home. He claims she scratched and bit him and told him she would hit herself in the face and call the police so he would be arrested. A juvenile in the home did not see the altercation but told police she did hear the woman tell the man she would hit herself and tell police she had been beaten. Police arrested the girlfriend for battery and false report of a crime.
JEWELRY THIEF: A burglar entered a home on Laurel Way by breaking the kitchen window and the glass in the back door and allegedly stole about $2,500 worth of costume jewelry. A juvenile at home at the time said he first thought the noise was the housekeeper breaking a dish but grew concerned when the noise continued. He called his father who told him to leave the house and call police. The housekeeper arrived shortly before police arrived and was unaware there had been a break-in. Dropped jewelry was found by the back door and the fence where police think believe the suspect hopped over to flee the scene on foot.
BULLYING BLOWOUT: Two mothers reportedly got into a confrontation over their children being involved in an alleged case of bullying on the school bus. A resident of Chelsea Ridge Apartments in Johns Creek told police another resident came to her door and threatened to have someone beat up her son if he made her daughter cry or hurt her. When police got in touch with the woman allegedly making threats, she denied saying she would send someone to hurt the other woman’s son but told her that she wouldn’t like it if someone were to beat him up or pick on him. No arrests were made.
