o PARENTAL GUIDANCE: At 270 Carpenter Drive in Sandy Springs Jan. 14, an officer located a car with two persons in it just after midnight in an office parking lot. The officer determined the two occupants of the car were man and wife and the vehicle smelled strongly of marijuana. They told the officer they were smoking it to relieve stress of some ongoing issues and didn’t want to be around the kids. They were cited on a copy of charges.
o UNRULY DUDE: At Piedmont Hospital at 1968 Peachtree Road in Buckhead Jan. 10, the suspect returned to the location intoxicated and began creating a disturbance. When the suspect was being escorted off the property by a security officer, he grabbed a “Wet Floor” sign and attempted to strike the officer. The suspect was taken into custody by police.
o BUSTED: At a parking lot/garage at 2166 Peachtree Road in Buckhead Jan. 7, an officer working security part-time observed a male suspect enter multiple vehicles.

o STOLEN CAR: At the Buckhead Grand condominium building at 3338 Peachtree Road Jan. 5, the victim parked his vehicle in the parking lot and entered the business to drop off food. The victim returned to find the vehicle missing. Video surveillance captured a black sedan driving up to the victim’s vehicle. A black male wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and beanie hat exited the sedan, entered the victim’s vehicle and drove away.
o PICKY PAUPER: At the Double Zero Napoletano restaurant at 5825 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs Jan. 13, officers were called to regarding a customer who did not pay for his meal, valued at $55.

The suspect told the officer that he did not recommend the pizza or ribs because they were dry and overrated.
